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.

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.
