Monsanto Strength Continues Real Money Pro($)

Monsanto's (MON) share price strength continues today, with Potash (POT) getting some collateral benefit.
But be wary of earnings preannouncements.
Monsanto (MON) reported slightly less-than-expected sales and profit for its fiscal second quarter this morning, reflecting lower-than-expected corn-seed price realizations and volume. Gross margins held, reflecting lower expenses and a lower research-and-development print. Forward guidance was much better than the ursine crowd had expected. Monsanto kept the lower end of its guidance range.
Stocks give back most of Monday's gains.
Market will be closed when employment report comes out.
