The abject failure that is the guaranteed result for the lack of due diligence...

A quick perusal of Monsanto as listed on the NYSE:

Monsanto Company

-1.79 (-1.69%)
After Hours: 103.99 -0.01 (-0.01%)
Apr 2, 6:03PM EDT
NYSE real-time data - Disclaimer
Currency in USD
Range 103.22 - 106.27

P/E 25.04
Div/yield 0.38/1.44
EPS 4.15
Shares 535.81M
Beta 0.93
Inst. own 86%

A market cap (value/worth) at a rather paltry $55.72B
This is a publicly held company.

PepsiCo, Inc.

+0.64 (0.81%)
After Hours: 79.73 -0.01 (-0.01%)
Apr 2, 7:17PM EDT
NYSE real-time data - Disclaimer
Currency in USD
Range 79.27 - 79.88
52 week 64.64 - 79.88
Open 79.35
Vol / Avg. 4.03M/5.85M
Mkt cap 123.02B
P/E 20.32
Div/yield 0.54/2.70
EPS 3.93
Shares 1.54B
Beta 0.48
Inst. own 70%

Supposedly "owned by Monsanto" but with a market cap of $123.02B, 2.21 times the valuation of Monsanto.

The Coca-Cola Company

+0.27 (0.67%)
After Hours: 40.69 -0.03 (-0.09%)
Apr 2, 5:58PM EDT
NYSE real-time data - Disclaimer
Currency in USD
Range 40.42 - 40.90
52 week 35.58 - 40.90
Open 40.43
Vol / Avg. 13.36M/14.96M
Mkt cap 181.48B
P/E 20.70
Div/yield 0.28/2.75
EPS 1.97
Shares 4.46B
Beta 0.51
Inst. own 62%

The Coca-Cola Company comes in at $181.48B, 3.26 times the value of Monsanto... Getting the picture?

Now a real thug of a company, not part of the list, but used to give perspective... One of my faves:

Johnson & Johnson

+0.76 (0.93%)
After Hours: 82.60 -0.09 (-0.11%)
Apr 2, 7:14PM EDT
NYSE real-time data - Disclaimer
Currency in USD
Range 81.90 - 82.69
52 week 61.71 - 82.69
Open 82.00
Vol / Avg. 10.34M/9.61M
Mkt cap 225.28B
P/E 21.40
Div/yield 0.61/2.95
EPS 3.86
Shares 2.72B
Beta 0.55
Inst. own 69%

Johnson & Johnson is a real juggernaut... 4.04 times the valuation of Monsanto with a spiderweb of companies and holdings with a constant pipeline of M&A... And it doesn't even begin to have the insidious capabilities that are routinely attributed to Monsanto.

All finance listings are sourced from Google Finance on 04/02/2013.

I'm extremely anti-Monsanto, have gone to protests, joined groups etc...
This list is false. It may be more accurate to say it's a list of companies that use GMO's but that isn't the same thing as Monsanto owning each of those companies.

My conclusion is that this is a Fake-Hoax.

The deleterious health ramifications of eating 'food' from this list of companies is manifest. You do not need to know who owns a minority share of whom, in order to observe credible evidence that there is a problem.

The question is, why is someone continuing to generate Fake-Hoaxes around this topic?

Yeah like I said on the earlier this one is a hoax. Shame it took 4 pages for it to get noticed. Just think of all the disinformation that goes on for pages and pages on ATS and people believe it. Time to get the tin foil hats out.

Yes I have, it is an interesting subject for me.

Perhaps we can exchange ideas tomorrow regarding ------ , it has many names but in this thread it will be unnamed to also not detract from OP.

Whoa amazing how many hoax supporters there are when I just debunked it.

Not my fault the earlier poster posting ticker quotes doesn't understand what a spin company is or how to tie names together with companies.

Go through what I posted and debunk my info, honestly your disinformation is getting annoying.
edit on 2-4-2013 by Knives4eyes because: (no reason given)

Sad to also have to point out that some of these Monsanto defenders might be on their payroll.

Want me to dig up how Monsanto pays for people giving good reviews and spreading disinformation on forums. You guys are honestly vile and repugnant in your methods.

Now watch them counter with some statement about how people like me go to this extreme.

Almost seems like I used to be one of them right? Well I'm on humanities side now no matter how painful and frustrating it is , I will burn the truth into memories here.

Lol if it's true. THen I better get my stock portfolio straight.

Ah....I see it's in the hoax section now, hopefully enough people can see that what I posted can be proven true.

Now I guess I have absolutely no choice but to pull out the big guns, look for every single piece of evidence to expose the truth. Keep your eyes peeled, it's going to be one hell of a thread.

Calling someone out on a lie doesn't mean you support the company they are lying about.

Common sense is indeed rare these days.

And like I said, they own 40% of the seed market in the US alone.

So as it stands now, good luck trying to figure out where every seed that grew every piece of produce came from.

I posted on the first page this was a hoax.

I was mostly ignored.

Wait till Monsanto starts buying up heirloom seeds in secret and destroying them, Never mind, the pollen is blowing onto the non gmo crops and contaminating them so they dont have to do the dirty work. 100 % of canola seed in Canada are G.M.O's. now.

And then they sue the farmer next door who had the gmo pollen blow onto their crops.

I have saved a few packs of non gmo seeds, but certainly not enough to feed a town. Or even 2 families.

You know about Percy Schmeiser??
