Textron could have bought Polaris and skidoo with pocket change, but they didn't want them. HMMMMMM WONDER WHY.

Probably because Polaris and Ski-Doo weren't going bankrupt and looking for a buy out.

Pocket change to the tune of $247M vs. several BILLION? Uhhh, I don't think so.

If you could get Polaris' and BRP's snowmobile divisions only, then you're correct. Never be able to get either company from parting with them, and if you did Polaris would just get scavenged for patents and then tossed

And yet Polaris stocks are still much higher than Cat. So what's your point?

Speed kills. Play it safe. Buy a Cat or Doo.
If it's a Cat it's a dog.
