Guru Investment Theses on Deere & Co

Mario Gabelli Comments on Deere & Co. - May 10, 2017

Deere & Co. - Deere & Co. (0.6%) (DE – $108.86 - NYSE) (NYSE:DE), headquartered in Moline, IL, is a leading global manufacturer of machinery for agricultural, construction, and forestry usage. Its dominant position in North American agricultural equipment markets optimally positions the company for what is expected to be an increase in demand for agricultural equipment both in the near term given cycle dynamics as well as for the long term, as global population and income growth drive crop demand in the coming decades.

Steven Romick Comments on Deere - Feb 01, 2017

Take Deere (NYSE:DE), for example. A superior company long known for its wide range of high-quality agricultural equipment and leading U.S. market share, Deere has, nevertheless, not been immune to weaker farm economics. The U.S. has been challenged. Brazil has been horrible. What Deere hoped to accomplish in Eastern Europe changed when Putin’s troops marched into Crimea. Success in the low horsepower Indian market has been slow coming. Deere’s sales worldwide have declined almost 30% from their 2013 peak while earnings per share have plunged almost 50%. A chart of its stock price and earnings per share suggests something entirely different however. Its stock has hit a new, all-time high while earnings are back at 2010 levels. Where’s the margin of safety in the purchase of shares now trading at 21.8x trailing twelve month earnings?7 Deere’s mid-cycle earnings should be higher, which would make the normalized valuation not quite as dear but we miss when such companies would trade as if the bad times would last forever. We aren’t picking on Deere. There’s lots of stuff that crosses our desks that hasn’t made much sense.

For a spell, the stock prices of some companies will defy logic but that won’t last forever. Eventually, fundamentals should prevail. In the interim, stock prices can trade anywhere. We hope to populate the Fund with quality companies whose current earnings fail to appropriately reflect longer-term prospects. Sadly, we’re finding a lot of Deeres out there, which explains that for as long as we can remember, we went an entire quarter (Q3 2016) without initiating a new position.

Jerome Dodson Comments on John Deere - Jan 25, 2017

John Deere (NYSE:DE), world-renowned for its big green tractors, added 102 basis points to the Fund’s return, as the stock climbed 35.1%, from $76.27 to $103.04. The stock ploughed ahead, as Deere’s 2017 financial guidance exceeded expectations, giving investors hope that earnings have bottomed after three years of declines. Farmers coping with low crop prices have put off investing in equipment, but eventually they’ll need to buy new tractors. When they do, Deere’s earnings should move higher, so we’re holding onto our shares.

IVA Funds Comments on Emerson - Sep 27, 2016

Well, Deere (NYSE:DE) is a much finer business. They are world-class. It's much more oligopolistic. The returns of capital over a full cycle dwarf I believe what they are with other fertilizer companies. Yes, the answer is that we've looked at both. There's a clear price at which we would love to own Deere. But, in the fertilizer space, and understand there's a proposed merger going on, we have found it difficult to find one company that truly has much lower costs than the other. In a commodity business, if you can find a company that structurally has much lower cost than another, it helps assure you that they will be a survivor if and when commodity prices are low, and then the company may in fact capitalize during times of low prices to maybe increase its market share position.

So, we have not been able to identify, at least yet, a fertilizer company that really stands out in terms of quality and being lower cost than others.
