Why Oshkosh Stock Is Up 18% Over The Last Month

Oshkosh (NYSE: OSK), a company that designs and builds mission-critical vehicles and equipment– has seen its stock price rise by about 18% over the last month, driven largely by robust Q4 numbers (FY ends September). Adjusted EPS came in at $2.17, beating estimates by $0.29 and revenues coming in at $2.2 billion, about $90 million ahead of estimates, driven by strength in the company’s defense, fire & emergency, as well as commercial businesses. While things have remained a mixed bag in the rental equipment market, as rental companies have been somewhat circumspect about their capital spending, rental rates were higher than expected over October and this could lead to a recovery, helping Oshkosh’s revenues.

We ‘step back’ from these recent swings to review Oshkosh’s performance over the last few years, as a context for what might come next. Our Interactive dashboard, Why Has Oshkosh Stock Rallied Over The Last Month? reviews the near term reasons and the big picture.
