  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Douglas Dynamics, Inc. designs, manufactures and sells snow and ice control equipment for light trucks, which is comprised of snowplows and sand and salt spreaders, and related parts and accessories. The Company sells its products under the WESTERN(R), FISHER(R) and BLIZZARD(R) brands through a distributor network, primarily consisting of truck equipment distributors located throughout the Midwest, East and Northeast regions of the United States as well as all provinces of Canada. It sells its products primarily to professional snowplowers who are contracted to remove snow and ice from commercial, municipal and residential areas. Douglas Dynamics, Inc. is headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. " (1/7/2017)

  • Oppenheimer Holdings, Inc. analysts commented, "PLOW reported adj. 4Q15 EPS of $0.67 vs. our/consensus $0.48/$0.56, with stronger than anticipated margins and a lower tax rate accounting for the beat. 2015 marked PLOW’s second consecutive year of record profitability, as the continued release of pent-up demand, addition of Henderson operations, record NPIs, and solid DDMS- driven execution furthered the company’s impressive performance. That said, while non-snow indicators (e.g., light truck sales) remain generally positive, we believe substantially below-average winter ’15/’16 snowfall is likely to drive meaningfully lower pre-season (2Q-3Q16) core demand vs. peak 2015 levels."
