08:08 EDTMONMonsanto sees Q1 earnings roughly half last year, FY15 growth concentrated in Q3
Monsanto said, "As its business has expanded globally over the past several years, the company has seen its earnings flow evolve between quarters. This trend continues in FY15 as the company anticipates an overall shift in its full-year earnings pattern, as several structural factors result in a full-year earnings flow with a smaller first quarter and a concentration of growth in the third quarter. With macro conditions resulting in lower planted acres for key regions in both corn and cotton in the quarter, combined with a timing shift as the company moves more of its Agricultural Productivity business to branded-product sales, Monsanto expects its first quarter will be roughly half of the total earnings from the first quarter of 2014. Beyond the first quarter, the biggest first half timing effect relates to the evolution in its Channel seed brand business model that is expected to shift business timing from the first and second quarters to the third quarter. The company expects second quarter earnings to be relatively flat year-over-year with a significant uptick in third quarter earnings reflecting the timing shifts and business growth in its largest markets. The earnings flow is punctuated by a fourth quarter that is expected to be break-even to positive year-over-year on an absolute basis."
08:06 EDTMONMonsanto reports Q4 Seeds and Genomics sales $1.376B

Hugh Grant, chairman and CEO for Monsanto, said, “In an industry that’s particularly near-term focused right now, there are few companies as well positioned to deliver strong growth today while significantly increasing investments to enable the continued delivery of a broad range of innovative solutions for tomorrow.”

15:08 EDTMONMonsanto technical notes ahead of earnings
In the prior three months the shares have underperformed, dropping nearly 14% in price. The trend has been bearish with a few volatile upside attempts which did not hold. Ahead of results, the stock has broken below an important support at the $110 area. This level has held as support since early March of this year. A continued breakdown below it on negative news would snap the 5-year uptrend line which has support at $110. Support levels to watch as potential downside objectives are at $105.45, $99.98, and $96.11. A break of the long-term uptrend line would be long-term bearish for share price. If the news surprises on the upside, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $115.39, $118.99, and $121.85.
