2016 is already off to a good start for the storied motorcycle manufacturer.
It's not as much of an apples-and-oranges comparison as you might think.
Circumstances are different from way back in December.
I'm adding Hartford Financial Services (HIG) to my "Best Long Ideas" list at $39.12 a share.
Resistance above the market in the $130+ area will likely cap a technical bounce.
Consider the potential benefits of selling long-term in-the-money puts on the stock of HollyFrontier.
I am closing this trade after fair gains.

Is Ford Running Out of Gas? Real Money Pro($)

The fact that an extended period of low interest rates has "pulled forward" auto sales, profits and stock prices. Who's left to buy cars? Used-car prices that have begun to slip (as per the Manheim Index). This is typically a precursor to lower new-car sales.  Incentives that are accelerating -- typically a signpost of a future sales drop and below-consensus industry profits. Anecdotally, too-liberal financing that's begun to lead to rising delinquencies. A ratio of wholesale car inventories to sales that's back to 2008 levels, according to a good analysis by Alhambra Investment Partners. The development of new mobility technologies and autonomous cars, which pose a potential threat to domestic car manufacturers. Yesterday, Jim "El Capitan" Cramer questioned on Twitter whether "Peak Autos" is a consensus view. I don't think Peak Autos is the consensus yet, at least judging by the multiple hedge funds (Greenlight, Moore, Hayman, Glenview, Citadel, Appaloosa, etc.) that are still long on General Motors (or at least were as of fairly recently). Other high-profile GM investors include Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B), while there's low short interest in both General Motors and Ford. -- Doug's Daily Diary, Peak Autos (Part Trois) (Jan. 6, 2016)
Ginni Rometty is leading Big Blue to bigger and better things.
Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital (OAK). He's heads above the field (just read his book, The Most Important Thing). Omega Advisors' Lee Cooperman. He's analytically rigorous and goes "belly to belly" with companies' management. David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital. Einhorn is a contrarian who's analytically rigorous and unafraid to short.
