What may be a smart for you, if you have a few extra dollars lying around, is to buy into the stock. Now, I am not an economist by trade, but I do try my best to be wise with my money. In the past three or four months Harley stock has dropped from over $40 per share to under $12. Quite a drop. The good new with this is that if you can invest and wait it out a little while, you should get a good return on your cash. I have been checking the cushions of the couch, looking for change in the washer and dryer, and picking up the pennies from the floorboards of the truck and think I might be able to buy about 10 shares… well, maybe 7. Not much, but hey, at least I will be a real live investor!
Love, Respect, and Ride Safe,
UPDATE: As this post has been sitting on my desktop, things have changed a bit… Harley stock got down to $11.42/share. However, last Wednesday, Harley was given an extra year to repay a 500 million dollar loan (due date of March 17, 2010). Investors were happy with the move and it was apparent in the stock market where HOG rose 18.0%, or $2.06, to $13.48.
