Well, I am still not sure about the meaning of this news. I don't think this is the beginning of the end for Monsanto. Facebook exect did similar things after the IPO...

What is your take on this one?


Company insiders and institutional investors alike have been dumping shares of the Monsanto Company in recent months. While consumers have concerns with Monsanto’s business due to its genetically modified organism (GMO) products, investors are worried about its business practices and stock performance.

Your source is Epoch news and they sourced it from natural news and they sourced it from their own editor and they have no link or any evidence as proof of this "story".

Here are links showing the actual monsanto stock movements going all the way back for 5 years.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Putin telling the media that Monsanto's attack on the world's food source could lead to WWIII?

I doubt for a minute the shady #ers behind this plot will just give up, but dumping one brand and creating a new one seems perfectly logical for them.

Would love nothing more than to see them dumped on their genetically modified behinds, but alas, I know it won't happen anytime soon.

Do you need a source? Maybe he just looked at the stock price and the public activity on a trading site?

I can't look right now... Has the stock dropped?

There's been no drastic increase in trading volume, no major drop in price, they're earnings report is due on Oct 2, and there is no evidence of anything out of the ordinary in monsanto stock at all.

Perhaps they have insider knowledge that something is about to happen to Monsanto? I did a Google search (see below) on any thing popping up for the company here is what I got:



Lots of variety from positive stories to speculation to more politics.

Why would any thinking person hold stock in this company? Check your portfolios if they're serviced by another company and demand that any stock in Monsanto be sold immediately. Don't be part of the problem. There's plenty of other companies to encourage with your savings.

This is pure hogwash. The MON stock recently made a slight adjustement downward 106.01 Down 0.04(0.04%) and is traded rather fair on London FTSE. Latest risk calc shows it is 1.14 times less risky than FTSE index. No volatility to speak of and with low volume movements. On a 52 week range the stock has been between 82-109 USD so todays price fix is rather high, hence the slightly downward adjustement.

Monsanto has very low ownership among the 'insiders'.

TPTB own most of the stock.


Insider Transactions


Major Holders

Sounds like eco activists attempted to create a run on Monsanto stock by putting out a false news story, without realising that it's, y'know, pretty easy to check what the share price is doing and verify that nothing untoward is going on.
