  • Monsanto Company Beats Q2 Estimates; Reaffirms Guidance (MON)

    Before the opening bell on Wednesday morning, Monsanto Company (MON) reported its second quarter earnings, posting higher net sales and gross profit over last year's Q2 results due to the solid growth from its core seeds and traits business. MON's Earnings in Brief
    • MON reported second quarter revenues of $5.83 billion, which are above last year's Q2 sales of $5.47 billion.
    • Net income for the quarter came in at $1.67 billion, up from $1.48 billion posted for last year's Q2.

    CEO Commentary Monsanto's CEO and chairman, Hugh Grant, had the following to say about the company's Q2 earnings: “Nearly 80 percent of our growth in the quarter came from our core seeds and traits business, providing an important proof point that our business is on track and positioned well to deliver the growth we anticipated for 2014 even against a backdrop of greater variability in the agricultural sector this year. The performance speaks to the value our technology has demonstrated on the farm and the overall strength of our global business. Our broader portfolio enables us to deliver growth today, while also building the platforms that will help us bring additional value to farmers around the world in the years to come.” MON's Dividend Monsanto's next quarterly dividend of 43 cents is payable on April 24 and the stock goes ex-dividend today.
