And the rumour mills churn out another one...here's what I read on another board:Anyone else heard of anything like this? Or is this just more internet noise?Ducati stock has been in play for the last month based in part on rumors that parent company TPG is now going to sell their stake in the Italian-job and cherry-pick the US Airline industry for fun and profit instead.
The news out of Europe is getting more intriguing by the day—latest published rumors link Ducati with Harley-Davidson, with the American manufacturer swinging in to buy an interest, or a controlling interest, in Ducati for about $228 million US, or about what Harley will make in jacket sales this coming Christmas.
These same rumors were floated several years ago with Ducati execs saying, as they are now, that 'it makes sense to partner with Harley-Davidson' but Harley had zero interest in buying Ducati in any way shape or form. Different story now? Time will tell.
