Who would have thought? Harley Davidson,
an American icon, is going to build
motorcycles outside of America!
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Why is Harley Davidson moving production
facilities out of the USA?
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
As the Trump trade war between the USA and
everyone else ramps up Harley Davidson is
looking at Europe where they sell about
40,000 bikes a year.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
This is second only to their sales in the USA.
Harley would be an obvious target for tariffs
by the EU.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
It is an iconic American brand and it started in
a state, Wisconsin, that voted for Donald
Trump.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Harley Davidson is looking to remain
competitive in Europe.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
But, how big of a change is this for the
company?
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Harley Davidson Production
Facilities
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa

Wisconsin in 1903 and its corporate offices
remain on the original manufacturing site.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
But Harley Davidson has many manufacturing
facilities according to the Harley Davidson
Website.

How Does a Trade War Hurt
Harley Davidson?
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
An interesting article in the Manchester
Guardian writes that the trade war is a threat
to Harley Davidson.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Harley-Davidson is not having a great year. In
January, the legendary bike company,
struggling to reverse a four-year slide in sales,
had to close its Kansas City factory.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Now Donald Trump – who seems as if he’d like
to be a Harley man – has added to its woes.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
This week’s announcement of steel tariffs on
US imports could add $30m to the company’s
costs, according to Wedbush Securities, an
investment firm.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Worse still, European leaders are threatening
retaliation, and several symbols of Americana
– including Kentucky whiskey, Levi’s and
Harley-Davidson motorcycles – are on their
list.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
The point is that steel and aluminum tariffs
raise the cost to Harley of making a bike.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Now they will be directly in the crosshairs of
the Europeans who will slap tariffs on well-
known American brands.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
And the company was already struggling to
remain profitable.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Why Harley Davidson is moving production
out of the USA is to remain viable as a
company.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
In May of 2014 Harley Davidson stock sold for
$71 a share. Today it trades at $44.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
What Is the Broader Picture?
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Stocks are down across the board as the
likelihood of a trade war increases.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
CNBC notes that the Dow falls 400 points as
Trump announces plans to bar Chinese
investment in US tech companies. The
concern is Chinese retaliation.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Shares of chipmakers Intel, Micron Technology
and Nvidia all fell at least 3 percent.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Boeing, Caterpillar and General Motors – all
companies with significant exposure to China
– also fell by 2.2 percent, 2.1 percent and 0.8
percent, respectively.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
Boeing, Caterpillar and GM were also on track
to post large monthly losses.
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing/why-is-harley-davidson-moving-production-out-of-the-usa
The pain has just begun to be felt.
