ince its founding in 1903, Harley-Davidson, Inc. (NYSE: HOG) has kept customers and fans excited about what they always have around the corner. This week, we learned three exciting things that Harley-Davidson has lined up:
1. Bret Michaels will join Aerosmith, Toby Keith, Kid Rock, ZZ Top, Doobie Brothers, and over 50 other bands to perform at Harley’s 110th Anniversary celebration this year in Milwaukee over Labor Day weekend.
2. A Harley-Davidson dealer opened Saturday in Panama City Beach, Florida. The word on the street was that a huge crowd of Harley fans showed up for the grand opening.
3. Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, was in China this past week as part of a trade mission. As part of his trip, he attended the official opening ceremony of a new Harley-Davidson plant in China. While Harley-Davidson is generally associated with the United States, some are surprised to learn that—in addition to having independent dealers in North America—they also have dealers throughout the world – including Asia (including the Middle East), Africa, Europe, and Latin America.
At the close of the bell on Friday, Harley-Davidson’s (NYSE: HOG) stock closed up 1.58% at $51.83 which gives the Milwaukee, Wisconsin based Motorcycle manufacturer a market cap of around $11.63 Billion. The company reportedly has over 6,400 Full Time Employees.
