Deere raises 2022 profit forecast

Deere & Co raised its profit forecast for 2022 on Friday, propelled by higher global crop prices, a direct effect of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The company raised the estimates even though its quarterly revenues failed to keep up with market estimates.

DE raised its fiscal 2022 net income forecast from US$7.0 billion to US$7.4 billion. Its previous estimate was US$6.7 billion to US$7.1 billion.

However, the company’s financial services net income declined for the reported quarter, primarily due to higher reserves for credit losses - fallout from the Russia-Ukraine war.

Bottom line:

Deere’s net sales for its production and precision agricultural solutions got a huge boost in the reported quarter. It was up 13% from the previous year.

DE has a market cap of US$97.86 billion. It has a P/E ratio 0f 17.68, and a forward one-year P/E ratio of 16.07. Its EPS is US$18.04.

The 52-week highest and lowest stock prices were US$$446.76 and US$320.50, respectively. Its trading volume was 2,253,562 on May 19.
