Monsanto Co. had a lengthy decline from $145.80 in 2008 to $44.61 in July, 2010, below a falling trend line (A-B – solid line).

In late 2010, the stock moved above this line (C) and started a new rising trend (dashed line).

The stock appeared to encounter resistance at about $77 in 2011 and then again at about $84 in 2012 (dotted lines), but eventually pierced above these levels (D) to confirm the bullish trend and higher targets.

Only a decline below $77-$78 would reverse the positive statusof this stock.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $99 and $109. Higher targets are visible.
