Have Deere-and-Company's shares ever split?

Is it a good time to buy Deere-and-Company stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

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 12x. In other words, Deere-and-Company shares trade at around 12x 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 2.2764. 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

Deere-and-Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$15.6 billion (£12.3 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$340.7561 up to US$445.1302. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DE.US volatility(beta: 1.05)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Deere-and-Company's is 1.051. 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).

Deere-and-Company share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 16.1% of net profits

Recently Deere-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 16.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.49% 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 1.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deere-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $5.54 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.

Deere-and-Company's most recent dividend payout was on 7 May 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 March 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
