AGCO CORPORATION (AGCO)

Fondamental analysis

AGCO Corporation is an American agricultural machinery manufacturer headquartered in Duluth, Georgia, United States


2021 continues to be a year of strong growth for AGCO: very positive results are coming from both sales and margins.

The geographical areas where the company operates have experienced strong growth despite the outbreak of the pandemic and a generalized increase in prices.


To date, we believe the stock fluctuates at -25% below what we believe to be a fair value. EV / EBTIDA of Argo Corporation is in fact clearly inferior to its sector, Farming / Agriculture.


The stock is particularly popular among analysts: Goldman Sach recently confirmed bullish estimates for the stock. Analysts estimate maximums around $ 200.00, we prefer to take a more cautious approach and estimate a first target of $ 155.00 in the medium term


⚡️Growth factors:

  • The results for the second quarter exceeded all expectations: with a turnover increased by 43% year on year, the growth forecasts for the full year of 2021 have also being raised.

  • The demand for machinery continues to be very high in Eastern Europe combined with strong growth in South America and APAC.

  • Continued growth and expansion in the technology department: in September 2021, AGCO acquired Farm Robotics and Automation S.L. (Faromatics), a leading company in technology applied to breeding.

  • VanEck is expected to launch a new ETF "VanEck Future of Food II" soon: We believe AGCO Corporation will most likely be part of the ETF. This event could bring new capital flows from the passive sector.
