Over time, MON will not only drop in stock but literally drop off the face of the earth for multiple reasons including endangering the health of the millions of people that end up consuming their products. Farmers will end up paying more for Aluminum resistant (GMO) seeds and run their businesses slimmer and slimmer, until MON becomes the LAST option for seeds out of forced circumstance. More health conscious people are becoming aware of the fallacy that is Monsanto and we will see that reflected in their stock.

The company markets poison, from Agent Orange to Round-Up. I get five emails a day urging me to write my congressional delegation to block their lobbying ploys to deceive consumers about GMO food. There has been a sea change. People care about safety of their food. The tide is not going to turn back.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Lots of negative hype about the company, but they have a large footprint and cash flow to invest in future ventures. There will always be a demand for more efficient agriculture, no matter how it comes.

GM crops have never been shown to represent a threat to the ecology. We have probably been using GM technology for ten thousand years to improve harvests and they reduce the amount of land used for agriculture significantly thereby benefitting wildlife. Modified crops require our intervention as human beings to be created and do not easily propagate by themselves. However they do deliver bumper crops and permit human beings to feed our populations effectively without impinging significantly on wildlife plant or animal. In time their ability to provoke aversion because of perceived threats to life on the planet should abate just as our beliefs in witchcraft have all but disappeared.

A rising swell of Pro-Labeling will hurt MON if their lobbyists create a backlash. They barely defeated 37 in CA, then 522 in WA. Soon they will begin having setbacks, and will have to stand to account for many controversial decisions in the history of this corporation.

Thumbs down: WAY DOWN!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
