Ann Duignan breaks down U.S. China Trade Truce
Amid China's warning to investors not to break out the Champagne just yet, Ann Duignan, machinery analyst with J.P. Morgan, will break down the recently announced U.S.-China trade truce at FWEDA’s 72nd annual conference, 3:30 p.m. Nov. 7. Slowing production along with other market factors prompted Duignan to rank Deere underweight as manufacturing numbers released in early October showed continued slowing. Duignan warns investors they might want to sit on the sidelines and see what happens, emphasizing market signals could indicate a structural shift in the agricultural economy and equipment sales. She’ll share what a trade breakthrough could mean short- and long-term, and she'll assess short- and long-term impacts if the deal falls apart or does not go far enough.
