Companies to Watch: trouble for Harley, Hasbro shines, change at TD Ameritrade

Here are the companies Yahoo Finance is watching today.

Harley-Davidson (HOG) is riding into a little trouble with its latest outlook. The motorcycle giant beat on earnings, and revenue was slightly below expectations. However, it cut its shipment guidance, saying demand from Europe is expected to be weak.

It’s a different story at Hasbro (HAS). The toymaker beat on earnings and revenue with North American sales coming in 14% higher than a year ago. The company credited positive consumer trends and brand deals with Disney for toys connected to Frozen, Star Wars and Avenger: Endgame.

TD Ameritrade (AMTD) is looking for a new CEO. Tim Hockey will be leaving the brokerage in February, and said he and the board agreed it was time for a change. Hockey has been at the helm since 2016 and helped guide the company through its $4 billion merger with Scottrade. Just yesterday, TD Ameritrade reported a beat on earnings, and revenue that rose 8% from a year ago.

A big settlement from Microsoft (MSFT). It will pay $25 million in a deal with the SEC and the Justice Department. The software company’s subsidiary in Hungary allegedly bribed foreign government officials using discounts on software licenses.

Another payout, this time from Google (GOOG). The search giant is shelling out $13 million as part of a settlement in a class-action lawsuit over claims that it violated a U.S. wiretapping law. The tech giant’s Street View program, a feature that lets drivers interact with panoramic images, had been intercepting other data including, emails and passwords.
