Deere, an industrial leader, benefited from farm equipment prices that had to hit record highs due to a shortage of spare parts, as well as a hike in crop prices. These benefits have been offset by economic uncertainty and inflationary pressures.

Additionally, both Deere and Larva CAT expects to benefit from US infrastructure spending. DE stock earns a spot on the prestigious IBD Leaderboard.

“Deere looks forward to another strong year in 2023 based on positive farm fundamentals and fleet dynamics, as well as increased investment in infrastructure,” CEO John May said in Deere’s earnings release Wednesday.

Last summer, the maker of farm and construction equipment was unable to complete the large tractors due to a parts shortage. But May said on Wednesday that the strong results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2022 reflected “extraordinary efforts to overcome supply chain constraints, increase plant production and deliver products to our customers”.

Deere tractors are facing a parts shortage

Tractor maker Deere has been growing sales with strong clips, driven strongly in machinery prices and demand for large farm equipment. But shortages of chips and other parts resulted in partially built machines, which were left waiting for parts for workers to complete assembly.

Profitability has been pressured by supply chain challenges, resulting in significant production inefficiencies,” Edward Jones analyst Matt Arnold wrote in a note this summer.

These shortcomings are expected to recede as supply chains return to normal. “Demand for Deere products remains very strong, and we expect the favorable demand environment to continue, given higher grain prices and increased infrastructure spending,” added Arnold.

An aging agricultural machinery fleet creates an increased demand for replacement. Deere also manufactures excavators, backhoes, dump trucks and wheel loaders for the construction market.

Arnold rates DE stock a Buy.
