12:17 EDTDEDeere slides after Q3 results and outlook impacted by deteriorating farm economy
Despite reporting third quarter results that surpassed analyst expectations, shares of farm equipment maker Deere (DE) are falling after the company said it sees farm equipment sales for the year lower than previously thought, as the downturn in the agricultural economy continues. WHAT'S NEW: Deere reported Q3 EPS of $1.53, down from $2.33 in the year-ago quarter, and revenue of $7.6B, down 20% from last year's Q3. Analysts' consensus estimates for Q3 were for EPS of $1.44 on revenue of $7.17B. John Deere's Chief Executive Officer Samuel Allen said, "John Deere's third quarter results reflected the continuing impact of the downturn in the farm economy as well as lower demand for construction equipment." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, the farm equipment maker forecast full year 2015 world-wide sales of its farm equipment to be lower by about 25% for the year compared to the 24% it forecast in May with its Q2 report. On its Q3 earnings conference call, the company said crop prices are stabilizing near the long-term average and the dairy sector remains under pressure. Beef prices remain solid while pork prices remain at low levels, Deere added. In China, the company sees continued slowdown in economic growth, lower commodity prices impacting agricultural economy, and mechanizing trends and ongoing subsidies supportive of agriculture. In India, the company sees positive consumer and investor sentiment supporting economic growth, and two consecutive below normal monsoon seasons impacting farm incomes. In the Commonwealth of Independent States, the company sees a continued deterioration of economic growth and credit conditions remaining challenged. Deere sees crop value of agricultural production in Brazil to decrease 11% in 2015. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Deere are down $6.04, or 6.6%, to $84.61 in midday trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that are leveraged to agriculture include AGCO (AGCO),Potash (POT), Mosaic(MOS), Agrium (AGU), Syngenta (SYT), CF Industries (CF), and DuPont (DD).

07:05 EDTDEDeere CEO says 'quite confident' about company's prospects
CEO Samuel Allen says Deere's performance in 2015 underscores its success establishing a wider range of revenue sources and more durable business model. "By continuing to report solid profits in a difficult environment, the company is showing great resilience and performing much better than in previous agricultural downturns." Longer term, Allen said he remained quite confident about the company's prospects. "We believe our steady investment in new products and geographies will make Deere the provider of choice for a growing global customer base and that the impact of these actions will become increasingly clear when our end markets recover," said Allen. "In our view, favorable trends based on a growing, more affluent, and increasingly mobile population, have ample staying power. For all these reasons, we have confidence in the company's present course and its ability to deliver significant value to customers and investors in the years ahead."
07:04 EDTDEDeere reports Q3 worldwide equipment operations sales down 22%
Deere's equipment operations reported operating profit of $601M in Q3.

These factors were partially offset by price realization and lower production costs for the quarter and by price realization, lower selling, administrative and general expenses, and lower production costs for the year to date.
