Traded in other countries:MON.Argentina, MOO.Germany, MO N.Mexico,
Monsanto Co along with its subsidiaries provides agricultural products for farmers. Its seeds, biotechnology traits, herbicides and precision agriculture products provide farmers with solutions that improve productivity.

Originally a chemical company, Monsanto has morphed into an agricultural giant, focusing on seeds and crop-protection products. In a major breakthrough, Monsanto introduced the first genetically modified crop seeds in 1996 and has remained the industry leader. The St. Louis-based company generated more than $15 billion in sales during fiscal 2015 and is focused on bringing new biotechnology traits to market to improve farmer yields and productivity.

Guru Investment Theses on Monsanto Co

Weitz Funds Comments on Monsanto - Jul 20, 2016

Monsanto (NYSE:MON) is a provider of seeds and biotech traits for corn, soybeans and cotton. Bayer, a German Life Sciences company, proposed acquiring Monsanto in the second quarter in what is a rapidly consolidating agricultural seeds and chemicals sector. Monsanto ultimately rejected Bayer’s initial offer of $122 per share as financially inadequate, but discussions remain ongoing. We have long viewed Monsanto as the highest quality franchise in agriculture, a view validated by Bayer’s acquisition proposal. The company’s earnings power is currently facing a number of headwinds, including currency effects, low commodity prices, regulatory delays and longer product introduction cycles. Nevertheless, we view its technology and research & development pipeline as second-to-none, which should allow it to create double-digit earnings growth from 2017 through 2019.



From Weitz Value Fund's Value second quarter 2016 commentary.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Monsanto - Jan 22, 2016

Monsanto (NYSE:MON) is a provider of seeds and biotech traits for corn, soybeans and cotton. At the company’s November investor meeting, the company provided a road map for double-digit growth over the next several years. We believe they are capable of making this happen. Despite not yet participating in the latest round of industry consolidation, Monsanto is still the best positioned seed company in the industry due its significant portfolio of intellectual property and cutting edge breeding and testing capabilities.

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s fourth quarter 2015 Value Fund commentary.

Bill Nygren Comments on Monsanto Co - Jul 09, 2015

During the quarter we added two new positions to the Fund, Monsanto (MON) and Fiat Chrysler, and eliminated Medtronic because its share price appreciated towards our estimate of intrinsic value.

We believe Monsanto (MON) is a very high quality company with above average growth prospects and an exceptionally strong competitive position in a large and consolidated industry. Low corn prices, challenges in valuing the company’s biotech pipeline, and the difficulty of quantifying upside from precision agriculture have caused Monsanto to sell for materially less than our estimate of its intrinsic business value. Management has been smart about capital allocation, both by repurchasing shares using cheap fixed-cost long-term debt and by attempting to purchase Syngenta at a price that should produce a strong return for shareholders, and in our view both Monsanto’s technological advantages and end markets are likely to grow.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s Oakmark Select Fund Second Quarter 2015 Commentary.
