Wednesday is a big day for Deere

The Wall Street consensus calls for earnings of $1.88 a share and revenue of $8.93 billion.
But there’s a decent possibility of negative news in the conference call. Last August, Deere warned that it was having problems manufacturing a new, more complex combine. Delays in delivering machines had reached 14 days, the company said, and some customers had begun to cancel orders. At the time Deere said that it believed it could make up for lost production in the fourth quarter that ended in October.
Are the problems fixed? Did Deere make up for lost production? Did the company’s inventory continue to swell in the fourth quarter?
Investors will want to know.
At a November 19 close of $86.35, Deere is trading near its November 1 high of $86.87. That’s a long way from the stock’s $70.59 low on June 4.
