    Is Deere about tractors?

    In the US.

    Why does this board focus on US tractor sales when talking about John Deere?

    What % of sales are Farm tractors in US? What about lawn mowers and forestry products and overseas sales?

    I think that this board needs to be a little more
    so fist tee kate dud.

    • Don't know how sofistikated I am, but I like Deere for 2 reasons: 1. It's cheap. The PE is very low, especially considering reasonable growth. Also, I love a decent dividend. 2. I think it is a reasonable play on dollar devaluation. If the dollar falls (or collapses) as Mr. Buffet portends, DE is well placed to both A). Fill world demand from an all of a sudden cheaper production base and B). Participate in the U.S. agriculture boom as our agricultural exports become cheaper (read: more competitive) with other net agricultural exporters. This will support DE's core competency beautifully. Downside to this puppy is very limited.
