    By Adrian Campos - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: MO, DD, SYT

    Shares of multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation Monsanto Company (NYSE: MO) are down 8% this month, after the company announced it will drop all of its European Union requests for the approval of new genetically modified crops. Meanwhile, in the U.S., the federal government has started to search inside Monsanto's business looking for antitrust violations.

  • A MONster of an Opportunity

    By Joseph Solitro - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: MON, SYT

    While the market sits near all-time highs, looking for a fresh investment opportunity is not an easy task. It's rarely smart to buy a stock at its 52-week high, so instead, we must search for the names who have pulled back. The global powerhouse Monsanto (NYSE: MON) has declined 11% over the last three months and has the appearance of an incredible value play. Let's dig deeper and more »

  • Lots of Potential, Both Positive And Negative

    By Matthew Frankel - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: MON, POT, SYT

    Generally speaking, I believe that uncertainties in the market are one of the best creators of investment opportunities. For example, the market was uncertain of the effects of Green Mountain Coffee’s K-Cup patents expiring, and this allowed investors to scoop up shares for around $17, or 78% less than the current price, just months later. Another example of this is Monsanto (NYSE: MON) who are being hit by a more »

  • Why You Should Invest in the Leaders of the Agriculture Industry

    By Damian Illia - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: IPI, MON, SYT

    World population growth is putting an ever increasing stress on food producers. The situation is aggravated by irregular rain patterns and soil degradation. In order to meet the rising demand, since the 1960’s, farmers have turned to genetically modified seeds, pesticides, and nutrients. Hence, Monsanto (NYSE: MON), Intrepid Potash (NYSE: IPI), and Syngenta (NYSE: SYT) serve a meaningful purpose for the society.

  • The Two Sides of the GMO Debate

    By Leo Sun - May 30, 2013 | Tickers: DD, MON, SYT | Editor's Choice

    Last week, over 2 million protesters in 436 cities across 52 countries rallied against agricultural giant Monsanto (NYSE: MON) and genetically modified crops. While I haven’t been a big fan of some of Monsanto’s business practices, as I have outlined in the past, I believe that these protests have sent the wrong message regarding GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and the genetically modified seeds industry in general.
