BofA, Morgan Stanley Cut Price Target On AGCO - Read Why

  • BofA analyst Ross Gilardi downgraded AGCO Corp AGCO to Neutral from Buy and lowered the price target to $135 (an upside of 6%), from $154 post the Q3 earnings report. 
  • "Realistic peak earnings power" is now priced into the shares, Gilardi notes. The European CEMA index, which historically has coincided with key inflection points in Agco shares, has "rolled over."
  • The analyst sees farm equipment market conditions remaining favorable for the next two years but says Agco shares are already priced for peak earnings of around $12 per share, "which seems about right."
  • Morgan Stanley analyst Courtney Yakavonis lowered the price target to $153 (an upside of 20.5%) from $156 and maintained an Overweight rating on the shares.
  • Recently, Credit Suisse lowered the price target to $155 (an upside of 22%) from $159 and maintained an outperform rating on the shares.
  • Price Action: AGCO shares are trading higher by 3.66% at $126.68 on the last check Monday.
