    Dr. Fun - Hugh Grant dumps $26 MM in MON shares - what sayeth thou?

    Hugh Grant who is Chairman & CEO at Monsanto Co. (NYSE:MON), sold 248,960 shares at $105.43 per share for a total value of $26,246,708.

    Dr. Fun,

    Remember whenever a DuPont exec sells even $1 MM in shares, you scream that the sky is falling on DD and BEWARE and BE WARY.

    But $26.25 MM?????

    What does this mean????

    Please avoid sending one of your aliases out after me to change the subject. MAN UP, Dr. Fun!

      Nobody bothered to mention the rest of the filing .How many shares does Hugh Grant still hold?

    • Nomofunfun: Here is one of his posts on the DD message board from last year about that....Note how MON's CEO (one person) sold about the same amount of shares in one DAY that funfundvierzig rants about when multiple DD execs sold a total of about 250,000 amongst ALL of those folks---over a total of 6 MONTHS!! not one single transaction like Mr Grant did...Take note of zig's last comment...(So, should MON investors be worried???)

      funfundvierzig • May 31, 2012 10:21 AM Readers should note that top executives of DuPont have been "energising" their own portfolios by dumping DD shares big-time. There have been heavy insider sales over the past six months as one senior executive after another in Fortress Wilmington dumped DD shares. According to Yahoo! data, nearly one-quarter million shares of DuPont was tossed out of the portfolios of those who know the Company better than any one else.

      Most of the sales were above 50. Now DD is changing hands @ 47 and change. Kudos to Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess and her crew of DuPont Presidents and Vice Presidents, and their Company-paid financial advisors for the shrewd timing on the disposal of shares of this struggling, Imprelis-weakened chemical conglomerate with massive liabilities for unfunded pension and other benefit plans.

      Savvy investors should always be aware of what those with the most complete knowledge of DuPont affairs are doing with their own money.
