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.

Monsanto Co was incorporated in Delaware on February 9, 2000, as a subsidiary of Pharmacia Corporation. The Company is a provider of agricultural products for farmers. It offers corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, canola, sorghum and sugar cane seeds. Its segments are Seeds and Genomics and Agricultural Productivity. Through its Seeds and Genomics segment, it produces seed brands, including DEKALB, Asgrow, Deltapine, Seminis and De Ruiter, and it develop biotechnology traits that assist farmers in controlling insects and weeds and precision agriculture products to assist farmers in decision making. It also provides other seed companies with genetic material for their seed brands. Its seed competitors in row crops are also licensees of its germplasm or biotechnology traits and a few of its vegetable seed business competitors have licensed biotech traits for sweet corn or genetic improvements through advanced breeding. In certain countries, it also competes with government-owned seed companies. Its biotechnology traits compete as a system with other practices, including the application of agricultural chemicals, and traits developed by other companies. Its weed- and insect-control systems compete with chemical and seed products produced by other agrichemical and seed marketers. Competition for the discovery of new traits based on biotechnology or genomics is likely to come from agrichemical companies, smaller biotechnology research companies and institutions, state-funded programs and academic institutions. Through its Agricultural Productivity segment, it manufactures Roundup brand herbicides and other herbicides and provides lawn-and-garden herbicide products for the residential market. It competes with numerous manufacturing companies for sales of agricultural herbicides.

Guru Investment Theses on Monsanto Co

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.

Bill Nygren Comments on Monsanto Company - Jul 10, 2014

Monsanto (MON) is a leading global provider of seeds, biotechnology traits, herbicides and data analytics for farmers. We believe Monsanto is a very high quality company with above-average growth prospects and an exceptionally strong competitive position in a large and consolidated industry. In our view, Monsanto’s lead is likely to widen as successful traits are combined and as the company maintains its distribution advantages. Additionally, Monsanto’s precision agriculture platform, led by its recent purchase of The Climate Corporation, could provide significant upside and further differentiate Monsanto from its competitors, since growers are only in the early stages of using this technology to improve yields. For the past year and a half, management considered a more aggressive capital structure, and they recently announced a plan to add leverage to the balance sheet while using the proceeds for a large share repurchase program. Low corn prices, challenges in valuing their 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.



From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s Second Quarter 2014 Shareholder Letter.
