    Spin off Deere Financial?

    I don't really get the point of having a big finance arm when your capital costs are higher than a bank. Deere financial is perhaps the best bank I have ever seen with $0 in provisions and excellent loan growth. I peg the value from $9 to $11 billion.

    Why not sell it off to Wells Fargo or some bank use the $10B to buyback 25% of the float of the stock. Deere financial is about 10% of earnings so the buyback will be highly accretive to earnings.
