Find out what lies ahead for PACCAR stock after a dismal show in 2015

PACCAR (PCAR 0.28%) may have avoided the fate that Cummins (CMI 0.22%) and Navistar International (NAV) suffered last year, but it was a bumpy ride for the truck maker. The stock offloaded 30% by the time 2015 wrapped up, with much of the loss coming in during the latter half of the year as a slew of macro concerns hit the industry and triggered panic among investors.

While Navistar has its own set of problems, such as a bleeding bottom line, to deal with, a greater exposure to off-highway markets like oil and mining compelled Cummins to downgrade its full-year guidance in the last quarter. PACCAR, on the other hand, delivered a strong third quarter, with management even expressing confidence in the company's growth prospects going forward.

So, why did PACCAR stock fall in 2015, and will it recover this year? Find out in the slideshow below.
