Navistar International Corporation (NYSE:NAV) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “strong sell” rating in a research report issued on Tuesday, August 8th.
According to Zacks, “For fiscal 2017, Navistar expects a decline in Class 6–8 retail deliveries in the U.S. and Canada. The demand for company’s core trucks is also witnessing a downtrend, which will negatively impact the revenues of its truck segment. Other concerns faced by Navistar include economic uncertainties in Brazil and lower volumes. Moreover, adhering to the fuel emission regulations for the production of 2017 models will result in increased manufacturing costs of engines and vehicles. Also, year-to-date, its shares have underperformed against the industry it belongs to.”
