As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Harley-Davidson, Inc. ( NYSE:HOG ), it is a highly-regarded dividend payer that has been a rockstar for income investors, currently trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. For those interested in understanding where the figures come from and want to see the analysis, read the full report on Harley-Davidson here .
6 star dividend payer and undervalued
HOG's share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. According to my intrinsic value of the stock, which is driven by analyst consensus forecast of HOG's earnings, investors now have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains. Compared to the rest of the auto industry, HOG is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This supports the theory that HOG is potentially underpriced.
Income investors would also be happy to know that HOG is one of the highest dividend payers in the market, with current dividend yield standing at 4.3%. HOG has also been regularly increasing its dividend payments to shareholders over the past decade.
