Deere & Company DE is scheduled to report fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results (ended as of Oct 31, 2021) on Nov 24, before the opening bell.

Which Way are the Estimates Trending?

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Deere’s earnings per share is pegged at $4.03 for the fiscal fourth quarter, suggesting a 68.6% year-over-year surge. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for total revenues is pinned at $10.5 billion for the period, calling for a year-over-year increase of 21.7%. The company has a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 48.1%, on average. Earnings estimates for the fiscal fourth quarter have been stable in the past 30 days.
Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement.

Key Factors to Consider

Higher agricultural commodity prices and pick-up in farm income have prompted farmers to boost spending on new agricultural equipment and replace the age-old ones. Apart from this, preference for Deere’s products for their advanced technologies and features will likely reflect on fiscal fourth-quarter revenues. Robust order activity driven by strong production and elevated grain exports to China are likely to have contributed to Deere’s performance during the quarter.

Cost management and benefits from footprint assessment are likely to have boosted the company’s margin in the to-be-reported quarter. However, rising raw material and logistics costs as well as uncertainties regarding the COVID-19 pandemic might have affected quarterly performance.

The Construction & Forestry segment sales are expected to have benefited from strength in the housing market, growth in the non-residential sector and strong order activity from independent rental companies during the fiscal fourth quarter. Demand for earthmoving and compact construction equipment remains strong. Robust lumber demand, particularly in North America, is anticipated to have aided forestry sales during the quarter under review.
