Stock plunges after 1Q17 release

On the day of Harley-Davidson’s 1Q17 earnings release, HOG stock fell 4.2% and closed at $56.91. Despite analysts’ weak estimates, investors’ high hopes for the quarter’s earnings could be the main reason the stock fell so sharply.

The company’s lower home market motorcycle shipments and shrinking first-quarter margins may have also affected investor sentiment.
