Winnebago Industries Selected To The Barron's 400 Index

Stocks in this article: WGO

FOREST CITY, Iowa, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading U.S. manufacturer of recreation vehicles, has been selected to the Barron's 400 Index after a four-year absence. This marks the fourth time Winnebago Industries has been selected to the index since the 400 Index inception in 1997.[1]

"Given that only about 6% of all North American publicly listed companies are selected to the Barron's 400 on the basis of their fundamental soundness underscores the overall strength of your company's financial results and its bright prospects as an investment for public shareholders," said Market Grader president Carlos Diez.

"We are indeed honored to be included in the Barron's 400 Index," said Winnebago Industries Chairman, CEO and President Randy Potts.  "We have had significant growth over the past four years and this is certainly affirmation that we are on the right path.  We look forward to continued growth as we move forward with aggressive product development in the RV sector and new initiatives such as brand licensing opportunities and transit bus production." 

According to Diez, The Barron's 400 Index, first introduced on the cover of the September 3, 2007 issue of Barron's, has outperformed the broader U.S. equity market by more than five percentage points per year in the last decade, a clear measure of the quality of the companies it selects. For more information about the index and its methodology you may refer to www.barrons400.com or to http://www.marketgrader.com/MGMainWeb/barrons/barrons.jsp.
