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 24x. In other words, Deere-and-Company shares trade at around 24x 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 1.1254. 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 $8 billion.

Shorting Deere-and-Company shares
There are currently 3.1 million Deere-and-Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Deere-and-Company's "short interest". This figure is 0% up from 3.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Deere-and-Company shares can be evaluated.
Deere-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Deere-and-Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Deere-and-Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Deere-and-Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Deere-and-Company's SIR currently stands at 1.41. In other words for every 100,000 Deere-and-Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1410 shares are currently held short.
However Deere-and-Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Deere-and-Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Deere-and-Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Deere-and-Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Deere-and-Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Deere-and-Company shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Deere-and-Company.

Deere-and-Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 22.88% of net profits
Recently Deere-and-Company has paid out, on average, around 22.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.02% 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 1.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Deere-and-Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.18 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 8 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Deere-and-Company's shares ever split?
Deere-and-Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 December 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 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
Over the last 12 months, Deere-and-Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $170.9631 up to $399.3101. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Deere-and-Company's is 1.0419. 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).
