Company Description

Why We Like It:
Believe it or not but shares of agriculture stock MON are trading near multi-year highs. Shares have been flirting with major resistance near $92 for weeks. Yesterday's high was $92.73 and the Nov. 29th high was $93.00. I suspect that if MON can breakout we could see it run to round-number resistance at the $100.00 mark.

I am suggesting we use small positions and buy calls when MON hits $93.05. If triggered our target is $99.50.

NOTE: This is a short-term trade. We do not want to hold over the January 8th earnings report.

Trigger @ $93.05 *Small Positions*
