    Take-over rumours

    There were reports of a private firm take over and this caused the stock to jump. For a company that went public in 1986, do you think this is something worth considering? Would this mean that it stops being a public company?

    I wouldn't mind a take over but would prefer a merger anytime. I would be keen to examine the nitty gritties in such an arrangement, with the hope that this would result in a surge in sales.

    Anything to bring the sales back up is welcome. I hope this will bring about a change of fortunes for this great motorcycle manufacturer and that this is not just any other rumour.

    Sometimes companies are forced to make a decision: Stay true to your roots, or stay alive. HD might be at that point right now where they will have to choose.

    I don't know much about these kind of things like mergers and take-overs, but I do think that this company has been here all these years for a reason. I don't think that there would be anything happening there that the management hadn't anticipated.

    Anyone care to explain to me how the shares jumped 20% on rumors? How does this work? Do people think that new management will mean more profits or what? I don't get it.

    What I know is that when talking about stock, speculation is one thing that leads to anticipation. It is possible that the takeover rumours meant that investors began looking at this from an optimistic point of view. I don't think HD has been here all this while for anything to start going wrong now.

    It is interesting how the stock market and investors in general respond to industry changes. The rumors about a take over have been there for the longest time but I hope something will materialize this time round.

    How about if Harley Davidson was to take a look at returning to using tinker beatings and pressed and welded crank pod and forged pistons let's have a quality product for 20000thousand to 40000thousand dollars to give the consumer a good build base
