General Mills (GIS) is a company that is near and dear to near to everyone’s heart. If you eat cereal, you have most likely eaten one of their brands. General Mills has a great business, but I go through a surprising point from the annual statement which affects the ultimate growth rate when valuing the company.
When you look at General Mills and the overall picture of the company, it looks a lot like Heinz (HNZ). Towards the end of the video I also provide some comments about Buffett, his purchase of Heinz and whether he paid a fair price or not.
More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:
- General Mills business model
- A run down of the financial statements and how to interpret it for investments
