It is the world's leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as "Roundup."

OSIS: Soros owned 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. This is one of the primary companies who produce and market the full body scanners the TSA uses at airports across the nation.Soros owned the OSIS stock at the end of the second quarter of 2010 and sold it during the third quarter. That puts the sale sometime between July 1 and September 30 of 2010, just prior to the uproar over TSA's violations of American's Fourth Amendment rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. It would appear that Soros possibly knew of the impending backlash from American citizens and a possible stock price plummet due to negative perceptions of the company.
