In a WisBusiness comparison of stock prices for companies with substantial Wisconsin operations, three large-equipment manufacturers were among the biggest percentage losers in the quarter that ended Tuesday.

The stock prices of mining equipment companies Joy Global and Bucyrus International both declined by more than 35 percent, while Manitowoc Co., which makes large cranes and is involved in the foodservice and marine sectors, saw its stock drop by 52.2 percent. Joy Global's stock dropped from $75.83 to $45.14, Bucyrus' stock dropped from $73.02 to $44.68 and Manitowoc's stock price dropped from $32.53 to $15.55.

The top percentage gainer for the quarter was Gehl Co., which manufactures construction and agricultural equipment. Gehl's stock rose from $14.79 to $29.43, a 99 percent gain. A pair of banks also saw their stock prices rise significantly -- Wells Fargo's stock rose 58 percent, from $23.75 to $37.53 and M&I's stock was up 31.4 percent, from $15.33 to $20.15.
