+ Watch MON
on My Watchlist
A global provider of agricultural products for farmers.
Though I don't agree with many of MON practices, one cannot deny the fact that they are essentially a monopoly in the commercial seed market. I do like monopolies as an investor.
Really like the purchase of Climate Corp
People love to hate Monstanto, but they are innovation leaders in the GMO industry. GMO foods are not unhealthy, and you won't see credible governments banning them or otherwise unfairly targeting them. GMO use will increase in times of need.
People need to eat and these guys own all the crops
We need more food, and GMOs are an important way that farmers increase yields.No scientific study has shown any adverse human health effects due to GMOs - the few that have shown this have been widely discredited. The environmental consequences are some - but compared with dumping buckets of pesticides they are much less especially with safe zones. So fears on this count are overblown. MON will continue to perform well and grow their business, especially as they develop new varieties of GMOs.
Mass panic, lawsuits and people voting with their dollars are going to cause massive portfolio dumps. Dump MON
I may get burned bad by this pick, because while it is the epitome of all that is soulless and evil, MON is still an extremely well run and powerful company.Shorting it because I loathe the company, and because more and more countries, states, and individuals are wising up to the health and environmental risks of GMO food.
there will be a shortage of food, due to the extreme wheather pattern and the seed will need to be replanted in many places, due to flooding. Therefore seed will need to be repuchased mutiple times per crop.
To quote Mr. Robinson from the Graduate, "I think you are filth, I think you are scum!"
You control the food supply, you control everything.
Like I said on Investor Beat today, I do like this company but 25 times earnings is just too much. Too levered to Roundup. The stock will pull back, then we'll take another look.
Steadily increasing resistance to genetically modified crops.
Without yield limiting weather this summer corn and soybeans are headed much lower. Farmers will pay for $300 per bag seed corn and $50 per unit soybean seed when grain prices are at current levels but will be price sensitive with lower commodities prices.
Good earnings and growth. People will always need food!

The campaign against Monsanto is starting to warm up.
Drought resistant corn seed should have a huge market
DNA-swapping process could be crucial for innovative new biotech, but the effects of GMOs remain in question http://bit.ly/RT9DL0
more people, better standard of living, more demand for food
