A little slow on the uptake sometimes, I am. My first thought, on finding out what it was, was that no company says "cult stock" more than Harley Davidson (HOG - Get Report). After all, have you ever known anyone to tattoo "McDonald's (MCD - Get Report)", "Pfizer (PFE - Get Report)", or "Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report)" on a body part? Maybe you have. But, in any case, I don't want to write about motorcycles today, not when I can write about doughnuts.
