6 MAY: WEEKLY MOTORCYCLE INDUSTRY SHARE PRICES

A snapshot of global bike and ATV industry share performance at the trading week closure on Friday 6 May 2016.

Ongoing worries about sluggish US economic recovery were underlined by poor employment growth data for April released in the past week, massively under-performing consensus analyst forecasts. In response, New York’s S&P 500 index declined by 1.07% amid trading that was often choppier. Falling faster than official sentiment, American motorcycle blue-chips continued to bleed value for a second week. Harley-Davidson dropped by 3.8% and Polaris took a more severe 9.1% spanking.

Bad news from the US allied with concerns among European exporters about the economic health of their key Chinese market, driving the eurozone’s Eurofirst 300 downwards by 2.93%, its worst week for about three months. Unsurprisingly, the three German automotive giants with motorcycling sideshows (all of which need to go on selling a lot of cars to minted customers in China) suffered share price negativity. And gloom across Europe was pervasive. Piaggio, which should have benefited from up-beat quarterly financial results revealed during the week, nevertheless saw its shares drop by 6.2%.

The other big developed market in Japan was relatively unscathed because Tokyo’s Stock Exchange was closed for three days mid-week for more public holidays. But on Monday and when it reopened on Friday, pressure from a weakening US dollar pushing the yen ever higher still impinged on exporters. The Nikkei fell by 0.25% and all four indigenous bike producers posted week-on-week share declines despite mostly rallying a tad during that final session.

Powered two-wheelers weren’t flavour of the week in major emerging countries either. Shanghai’s Composite index lost 1.53% but listed Chinese motorcycle manufacturers tanked by a far more serious degree, dropping sharply on Friday in particular. In India, across-the-board losses were experienced by biking brands too, apart from a sole and notable exception. Basking in the glory of a best-ever annual financial performance by its main Royal Enfield business, Eicher shares rose.
