Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates DEERE & CO as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate DEERE & CO (DE) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, increase in stock price during the past year and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
