Out of the 18 analysts in the above chart, ~11% or two analysts have a “strong buy” recommendation on the stock for the next 12-month period. About 22% or four analysts have a “buy” recommendation on the stock for the same period, while 67% or 12 analysts have a “hold” recommendation for Monsanto.

Target price

The consensus mean target price on Monsanto for the next 12-month period stood at $125.8. Bayer’s acquisition price is $128, which is also analysts’ current median target price on the stock. The current mean and median target price would give ~2.1% and 3.9% upside over the market closing price of $123.15 on March 14.
