Deere announced it will reduce the size of its manufacturing workforce at some agricultural equipment factories in response to current market demand for its products. The action will place more than 600 employees at four locations on indefinite layoff. In addition, Deere is implementing seasonal and inventory adjustment shutdowns and temporary layoffs at several of the affected factories. When Deere announced third quarter earnings on Wednesday, the company said it planned to reduce agricultural equipment production in the company's fourth quarter. Employees have been informed at the affected facilities, which include John Deere Harvester Works, East Moline, IL; John Deere Seeding and Cylinder, Moline, IL; John Deere Des Moines Works, Ankeny, IA; and John Deere Coffeyville, Coffeyville, KS. No other locations are included in today's layoff announcement.

06:43 EDTDEDeere upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman
Goldman upgraded Deere to Neutral based on an improved margin profile. The firm said Deere is benefiting from lower raw material costs and strong ag equipment pricing through the downturn and raised its price target to $94 from $78. Goldman remains negative on the outlook for ad equipment capex given weaker farmer income and peak capital stock.
