Is Deere-and-Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Deere-and-Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Deere-and-Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Deere-and-Company's P/E ratio
Deere-and-Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Deere-and-Company shares trade at around 11x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Deere-and-Company's PEG ratio
Deere-and-Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.852. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Deere-and-Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Deere-and-Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$15.3 billion (£12.2 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Deere-and-Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Deere-and-Company share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Deere-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$343.274 up to US$448.4194. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Deere-and-Company's is 1.027. This would suggest that Deere-and-Company's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

Recently Deere-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 14.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.46% 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 1.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deere-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $5.05 per share.
