Company Description

Why We Like It:
We are going to take another swing at MON. Last time our play didn't open. The stock's oversold bounce has failed near resistance at the $98 level. Once again MON is hovering near its simple 300-dma and support near $95.00. So far the August low has been $94.56. We are suggesting a trigger to buy puts at $94.40. If triggered our short-term target is $90.25. More aggressive traders could certainly aim lower since the P&F chart is forecasting an $84 target.

Trigger @ 94.40
