You Can Now Buy Certified Pre-Owned Triumph Motorcycles in the U.S.

By General Posts

by Daniel Patrascu from https://www.autoevolution.com

Going for a pre-owned vehicle, regardless of its type or number of wheels, is always risky business. Despite all the tools the modern world puts at the disposal of the buyers, one could always end up taking home something really faulty.

That’s why we have certified pre-owned programs. Generally ran through dealers or the car/bike makers themselves, these initiatives try to put the buyers’ minds at ease by supplying them with all the correct info and checks for a vehicle.

British bike maker Triumph has been running such a program on the home continent for a while now, and apparently it was successful enough for the company to decide an expansion on the U.S. market would be in order. As such, starting November 23, the Triumph Certified Pre-Owned Motorcycle Program kicked off.

According to Triumph, bikes sold through this program come with a few perks. First, there is the quality check performed by the bike maker’s or its dealer’s personnel. The two-wheelers will thus have a full-service history, but also multi-point inspection and all rectification work, if needed, completed.

Then, each one will come with minimum 1-year, unlimited mileage warranty, but also 1-year roadside assistance. Financing for bikes sold this way is also available.

This program is good news for those trying to sell as well. Triumph accepts into this program bikes up to 5 years of age from first registration, with a maximum mileage of 25,000 miles (40,000 km). Those involved in major accidents, used for racing, or equipped with non-Triumph hardware will not be accepted.

“We are proud to offer a Certified Pre-Owned program, ensuring that customers joining the Triumph family with a pre-owned motorcycle are given the same great product experience and factory-backed assurances as someone buying a brand-new Triumph,” said in a statement Rod Lopusnak – General Manager, Triumph North America.

“The program also offers a great benefit to new bike buyers, by protecting the residual value of their brand-new Triumph when they’re ready to sell or trade-in for a new bike. And for our dealers, they’re now able to list their Certified Pre-Owned motorcycle inventory on our new website for national visibility.”

Harley-Davidson: A Piece Of Americana On Sale

By General Posts

from https://seekingalpha.com

Summary
  1. Harley-Davidson has the power of a strong brand name that resonates well with consumers.
  2. While it’s had its fair share of recent challenges, I’m encouraged by the company’s turnaround efforts being led by its new CEO.
  3. I expect the company to benefit from an increased need for outdoor recreation, and see the shares as undervalued.

During the current COVID-19 environment, technology stocks seem to get all of the glory. However, I believe that by looking beyond the headlines, one can find value in stocks that are positioned to benefit from the current environment. One such stock that I see is Harley-Davidson (HOG), which is a well-recognized, classic American company. In this article, I evaluate what makes this an attractive investment at the current valuation; so let’s get started.

Looking Into Harley-Davidson

There are perhaps few companies that spell Americana more than Harley-Davidson. Its iconic brand is synonymous with motorcycles and is loved by enthusiasts in the U.S. and around the world. Its loyal customer base like the fact that the bikes are highly customizable, therefore making each bike their own personal expression.

What I like about the company is that its brand transcends beyond just the product, and into a feeling. Emotions play a huge role behind consumers’ large discretionary purchases, and this is exemplified by the following quote from the company:’

The current environment, however, has not been kind to Harley. Revenue was down by 47% YoY in the latest quarter due to lower shipments, and the company posted a net loss of -$1.83 per share. This was due to a combination of restructuring charges and the fact that nearly 60% of its global dealer network was closed back in April. In addition, Harley had lingering issues with a bloated cost structure and an inefficient supply chain. These factors led to the company cutting its quarterly dividend to just $0.02 per share.

These challenges have resulted in the shares widely underperforming both the market and that of its competitor Polaris (PII), which makes off-road vehicles, snowmobiles, and the Indian brand motorcycles. As seen below, HOG has returned -39% on a YTD basis, while PII posted just an -11% return.

What I find encouraging, however, is that the board of directors seems to have acknowledged Harley’s missteps with the appointment of the new CEO, Jochen Zeitz, in early May of this year. Jochen came from Puma (OTCPK:PMMAF), where he was credited with that company’s turnaround, and the hope is that he will do the same for Harley. Initial reviews seem to be positive.

The activist investor, Impala Asset Management, which holds a 2.5% stake in Harley, noted in its August report that “for the first time in five to six years, the company is on the right track again,” and that “this is a fundamentally strong company that just lost its way.”

Looking forward, I see the company as delivering on its ‘Rewire’ restructuring efforts. This year, management expects to deliver $250M in cash savings, excluding restructuring charges. In addition, the company has simplified its organizational structure, by merging complementary divisions together. I see this as enabling the company to operate and make decisions more efficiently by reducing bureaucracy.

In addition, the company is refining its product models, which reduces complexity and enables investment into high growth areas, as management noted during the last conference call:

“Our product portfolio and launches have been reset for maximum impact with a fully aligned go-to-market process. We’re streamlining our motorcycle models by approximately 30%, with plans to further refine our product portfolio. This enables us to invest in the products and platforms that matter the most, while better balancing our investment in new high potential segments.”

In the meantime, Harley has a strong $4.23B in liquidity, which is comprised of $3.4B in cash, and $817M in availability on its line of credit. Although the company raised debt during the last quarter, management noted that it is within its financial debt covenants, and the company maintains a BBB investment grade rating from S&P.

The company appears to be making continued progress in its streamlining efforts, as it announced its exit from manufacturing in India while it is reportedly close to a distribution deal with India’s Hero MotoCorp. I see this as a plus, as it reduces Harley’s manufacturing overhead, which can be especially burdensome during the economic recession.

Looking forward, I’m encouraged by the fact that more than 90% of its global dealer network was open at the end of June. I see Harley as benefiting from an increased need for outdoor recreation due to social distancing measures.

Valuation

Turning to estimates, it appears that analysts are expecting a strong rebound in the EPS in the next two years, with a consensus Buy rating (score of 3.8 out of 5) and an average price target of $31.92.

Based on the 2021 earnings estimate, the forward P/E of the stock is 9.24, which is well below the stock’s normal P/E of 15.8. While the stock may not deserve to trade at its normal P/E based on a forward estimate, I do see upside potential to at least bridge some of the gaps.

Investor Takeaway

Harley-Davidson has the power of a strong brand name that resonates well with consumers. While it’s had its fair share of recent challenges, I’m encouraged by the company’s turnaround efforts being led by its new CEO. So far, it appears that the company is making good progress, and revenue should pick back up as the vast majority of its dealer network has re-opened for business. In addition, I see the increased need for outdoor recreational activities as being a strong tailwind for the company. Based on forward P/E estimates, the stock appears to be undervalued. For this, and the reasons stated above, I have a favorable view of the shares and see upside potential.
