Monsanto Earnings

Monsanto Co. (MON) said its fiscal first-quarter loss was $19 million, or 3 cents a share, compared to a profit of $556 million, or $1 a share, in the year-ago period. Total net sales fell to $1.7 billion from $2.6 billion.

Analysts were looking for nil earnings in the most recent quarter on sales of about $2 billion. For the full year, the company predicted ongoing earnings of $3.10 to $3.30 a share. Wall Street projected fiscal 2010 earnings of $3.35 a share, on average.

Aww,such a shame they aren't making any money. Keep it up everyone!! We can put them out of business!

JP said...

reading your post title, I was hoping that you had somehow figured out how to earn money off of Monsanto, but it's always the other way around with them...

Never heard of them, but if you don't like them then I don't!

We know friends of the Indiana farmers (including the seed cleaner) on Food Inc. Rumor has it a bunch of farmers are working on starting up non-GMO seed companies to help make it easier for farmers to buy from someone other than Monsanto.

Now if I just didn't have one of the Monsanto testing sites just a few miles from my home.

Monsanto, = the evil scourge. Krissy, if u go to the "Monsanto" label on the right sidebar of my blog, you will come across an article published in Vanity Fair last year.

It will tell you all you need to know about Monsanto.

JP, I think the only way to make some money off Monsanto would be to trade their public stock. I am a stock trader, but couldn't bring myself to buy it!

Mary, I hope those farmers are 100% successful with what they are trying to do! Monsanto has made it very difficult for farmers. And many of them did not realize in the beginning what they were "signing themselves up for"

Hi, Annie, thanks for keeping the axe blade to Monsanto's collective corporate throat. I'm sure you've run across this statement by Johnny's Seed but I thought a link might be appropriate here:
I've been searching for a non-Monsanto affiliated seed source, and this is a pretty good mission statement from a reliable source. Enjoy, and hope you're feeling good!!
