What are Wall Street analysts saying about Deere & Company stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Deere & Company stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For fiscal 2019, Deere projects net sales growth of 7% year over year and net income of $3.6 billion. However, results will bear the brunt of higher costs for raw materials and logistics. Also, elevated expenses due to investments in precision agriculture as well as next-generation product development programs will likely impact margins. The implementation of tariffs and apprehensions regarding stretched out U.S-China trade talks weighed on farmers’ sentiment. Even though the United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) expects net farm income to rise 10% to $69.4 billion in 2019, it lagged the 10-year U.S. net farm income average by a wide margin. This weak forecast, along with lower commodity prices, signals continued constrained demand for agricultural equipment in North America, which will likely impact Deere’s results. Also, drought in Europe, weak growth in Argentina and elevated expenses remain concerns." (4/17/2019) 2. 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.""
