The firm keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

(NYSE:DE): Following a recent survey of Midwestern ad dealers, Barclays believes that a potential slowdown in North American agricultural equipment demand will be less severe than expectations suggest; the firm said that there has not been a significant reduction in demand, and that Deere’s visibility through the second half of 2014 could be better than expected. The firm sees a limited downside to Deere, given relative valuation, and reiterates its Overweight rating.
