What are Wall Street analysts saying about Deere & Company stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Deere & Company stock: 1. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We just wouldn’t forecast a fact pattern based on one quarter of demand; plus CNH already warned us, no? Besides, the ~5% price increase DE recognized across its businesses is very strong – a number that we recognize could moderate through the year as Construction laps its y/y gains. Tempering our margins back to the company’s 12% ag guide gets us to <15% incrementals and quarterlies at ~20-30%, a level that's well within DE's means, historically speaking.There's top-line risk into 2H, different than peers. What differentiates DE's ag business vs. others is that the slowdown is not on its own due to end market peaking or in some cases, like mining, a mid-cycle demand pause. Instead, we'd see it as a direct result of the political climate, which does add to risk into 2H19 ( 2/1/19), but we see it longer term more in the areas OK Ag."" (2/19/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For fiscal 2019, Deere anticipates net sales to be up about 7% year over year and projects net income of about $3.6 billion. The Wirtgen acquisition will contribute about 2% to net sales for fiscal 2019. The company will benefit from upbeat agricultural and construction equipment markets. Acquisitions and introduction of advanced technologies in its products will also drive growth. The stock has also outperformed the industry in the past year. Deere remains well placed for growth over the long term, based on steady investments in new products and geographies. Profitability is likely to remain strong, backed by upward trends in population and urbanization growth, along with continued income growth and dietary improvements."
