Winnebago (WGO) Earnings Release

I mentioned our Winnebago short on Thursday - here are the details from the earnings release:

Revenues for the second quarter of Fiscal 2011 ended February 26, 2011 were $106.6 million, a decrease of 3.6 percent, versus $110.5 million for the second quarter of Fiscal 2010. The Company reported an operating profit of $4.1 million for the quarter, versus an operating loss of $1.9 million for the second quarter of Fiscal 2010.

Winnebago Industries' dealer inventory increased 7.8 percent compared to the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2010, with 2,179 of the Company's Class A, B and C motor homes on dealers' lots at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2011. [W]innebago Industries' sales order backlog was 957 Class A, B and C motor homes at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2011, a decrease of 17.4 percent compared to the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2010...
Problems: increasing dealer inventory and falling backlog are not a good sign. Also, the company used to report a metric called "Retail Registrations", but it does not appear to be in the earnings release this time.
