Shares of Deere dropped on Wednesday after the manufacturing company issued lower guidance as trade tensions continue to slow equipment purchases by farmers.
The Moline, Illinois-based company said it now expects net income of $2.7 billion to $3.1 billion in fiscal 2020, lower than average analyst estimates of $3.5 billion for the year, according to Refinitiv.
Deere said it sees agricultural equipment sales falling between 5% and 10% in fiscal year 2020. Construction equipment sales are expected to decline as much as 15% next year, the company said.
