Recently Deere-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 22.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Deere-and-Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deere-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $4.05 per share.
While Deere-and-Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Deere-and-Company is investing more in its future growth.

Have Deere-and-Company's shares ever split?
Deere-and-Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 December 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Deere-and-Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Deere-and-Company shares which in turn could have impacted Deere-and-Company's share price.
Deere-and-Company share price volatility
