Hedge funds, insider traders begin dumping Monsanto stock as reality of GMOs sinks in across Wall Street

(NaturalNews) Monsanto executives and insiders are dumping Monsanto stock in  record volumes, sending the stock price spiraling downward. CEO Hugh Grant just  sold off 40,000 shares at $97.74, and both Janet Holloway and Gerald Steiner —  both high-level Monsanto executives — recently ditched more than 10,000 shares  each. Tom Hartley also bailed on another 6,000 shares at $100.15. (See sources  below.)
Hedge funds, meanwhile, are also dumping Monsanto stock, most  likely due to sharply increased “negative sentiment.” This means people  increasingly don’t like Monsanto, and that’s a direct result of all the growing  realizations about the dangers of GMOs, Monsanto’s predatory business practices,  the company’s dangerous experiments that have already unleashed genetic  pollution, and the fact that GM  corn has been experimentally found to cause widespread cancer tumors in rat  studies.
Just the fact that Monsanto’s GE wheat trials got out of control  and contaminated a wheat field in Oregon — causing Japan and South Korea to ban  U.S. wheat imports — has resulted in 150  groups now demanding the USDA keep a tighter lid on Monsanto’s GMO  experiments. These groups are fed up with seeing the market value of their  crops destroyed by sloppy “open field” experiments being conducted by Monsanto  that spread genetic pollution across the country and contaminate non-GMO  crops. (Monsanto goes even further and actually sues the farmers whose fields  they contaminated!)

Hedge funds dumping Monsanto

As InsiderMonkey.com  reports, Monsanto “has experienced declining interest from the entirety of  the hedge funds we track.”
The report goes on to say:
At the  top of the heap, Jeffrey Vinik’s Vinik Asset Management said goodbye to  the largest stake of the 450+ funds we monitor, totaling close to $100.8 million  in [Monsanto] stock. Sean Cullinan’s fund, Point State Capital, also  dropped its [Monsanto] stock, about $54.7 million worth.
These sales  leave Stephen Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital with the largest holdings of Monsanto, over $613 million  worth of the company’s stock. Natural News urges all investors to ditch Lone  Pine Capital and take your money somewhere else that doesn’t invest in “the  world’s most evil corporation.”
Blue Ridge Capital also owns over  $320 million in Monsanto stock and should be immediately abandoned by all  investors.

Monsanto share prices plummeting ever since the March Against  Monsanto

So far this year, Monsanto (MON) share prices have plummeted from a  high of $109 to a current trading range around $95. That’s a drop of nearly 13%,  and the bad news for Monsanto just keeps coming.
For one, the European  Union’s new food safety guidelines affirm  the methodology and findings of the Seralini GM corn rat study. As much as  the biotech industry and all its pimped-out science trolls have attempted to  attack the study, the secret is already out: GM corn causes cancer tumors  and consumers accurately see GM corn as equivalent to a “poison”  symbol on foods.
The Seralini study, by the way, found that:
• Up  to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.
• Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water  supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.
• Rats fed GM  corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver  damage and kidney damage.
• The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto  variety of GM corn that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals  and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast  cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.
Anyone who is still  investing in Monsanto is investing in this:

All food companies that use Monsanto’s corn will be punished in the  marketplace

The future for sales of Monsanto’s GM corn look especially bleak  due to the simple fact that GMO labeling is now inevitable. The consumer  push to know what’s in our food is unstoppable, no matter how much lobbying  Monsanto conducts in a desperate effort to keep consumers ignorant about what  they’re eating.
Whole Foods, of course, has already announced  mandatory GMO labeling on everything it sells by 2018. I believe Wal-Mart  and other retailers are also considering a similar move, or they’ll lose market  share to Whole Foods.
At the same time, major food manufacturers are  realizing they must either get the GMOs  out of their products or face a massive consumer backlash. As a result, there is  currently a mad rush by food companies to get their products certified by  the Non-GMO Project. Across the board, products that achieve Non-GMO Project  Verified status experience an almost immediate 30% increase in sales  nationwide.
Do the math: companies that use Monsanto’s GM corn are  punished and boycotted in the marketplace. Companies that use non-GMO corn  experience huge increases in sales. In food company corporate boardrooms all  across America, this is a no-brainer: dump GMOs if you want to  survive.
The same is also true for hedge  funds and mutual funds: the more they invest in Monsanto, the more they  stand to lose from the global outrage against Monsanto, GMOs and GM corn in  particular.
Plus, I also happen to believe there will come a day when  many of the top Monsanto executives will be arrested and prosecuted for their  role in carrying out crimes against humanity (not just from GMOs but also from  glyphosate). When that day comes, Monsanto share  prices will obviously fall through the floor. The company may, in fact,  implode like a dot-com bubble, leaving investors holding worthless paper instead  of valuable shares… a kind of poetic justice for all those who furthered the  means of such a destructive entity in the first place.

See the funds that still invest in Monsanto

The mutual funds still  investing in Monsanto include:
• Fidelity Select • American  Century • Rydex Basic Materials • Hartford Growth • ICON Materials • Vanguard Materials
If you own any of these mutual funds, sell them  now and invest somewhere else. Become an “activist investor” and put your  money in companies that create a better world, not companies that destroy their  world for their own selfish greed.

Why humanity will achieve victory against Monsanto

Monsanto is at war  with humanity and the planet, but humanity will achieve victory against this  evil corporate force of death and destruction. It is already happening in the  marketplace and across the minds and hearts of millions of activists in stand in  solidarity against corporate evil.
So spread the word about not just  avoiding GMOs but also avoiding owning Monsanto stock in any form. If you  have money invested in a mutual fund or hedge fund that owns Monsanto, sell  the fund! Don’t let anyone use your money to further the profits of the  biotech industry. Invest your money in something that helps humanity, not harms  it.
