AGCO stock should rebound in a week after falling 7% – Trefis
The share price of AGCO (NASDAQ: AGCO), a manufacturer of agricultural machinery has suffered a minus of 7% in the last five trading days. While there was no company-specific announcement, agricultural and construction equipment-focused industrials sold off last week, with Caterpillar and Deere also down over 5% over the same period.
After AGCO stock fell 7% in just five days, will it continue its downtrend in the coming weeks, or is the stock imminent? Looking at the historical performance of AGCO stock, it appears that the stock will rebound in the near future. Using the most recent trend (7% decline in one week) and ten years of historical stock data, the Trefis AI engine determines that AGCO stock is likely to rise over 5% in the next month (twenty-one trading days). Also, the age of farm equipment in the US is now above average, and this is likely to result in strong demand as farmers seek to replace existing equipment, which is a good sign for AGCO stock.
