B400SelSep2014_LowResForest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc. has been named to the Barron’s 400 Index in its biannual rebalance in September.  

“We are honored to be recognized by Barron’s for the 400 Index,” said Winnebago Chairman, CEO and President Randy Potts. “Winnebago Industries’ management team has been doing a great job of consistently growing and improving our business on multiple fronts and we are pleased to be recognized for those efforts.”

According to Barron’s, this is the eighth time Winnebago has been selected to the index since its inception in 1997. A letter from Barron’s stated, “Given that only about 6% of all North American publicly listed companies are selected to the Barron’s 400 on the basis of their fundamental soundness, it underscores the overall strength of your company’s financial results and its bright prospects as an investment for public shareholders.”

The Barron’s 400 Index, jointly developed by Barron’s and MarketGrader (www.marketgrader.com), is comprised of companies that score highest when evaluated against fundamentals-based criteria as measured by MarketGrader’s overall grade across growth, value, profitability and cash flow.
