Interview with Famous Author Joseph Calandro, Jr.
Can you tell us a little bit about your background? I started in the financial services industry while I was still in college, and have been in it ever since. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992 I started studying derivatives and liked it so I began trading. I was taught to trade by a student of the one of the traders profiled in the popular book Market Wizards so I knew what I was doing; nevertheless, I got taken out 5 years later during the Asian Contagion. That experience led me to Graham & Dodd, and to risk management. I am now consulting on M&A using Graham & Dodd valuation and, incredible as it may seem, as far as I know I am the first person to do so. Read more...

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, the firm provides banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance through more than 9,000 stores and 12,000 ATMs. Wells Fargo serves one in three households in America, and as of December 31, 2013, it had $1.5 trillion in customer assets.

Weatherford International Ltd.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Viacom Inc
Viacom Inc. (VIA) (0.9%) (VIA - $86.75 - NASDAQ) is a pure-play content company that owns a global stable of cable networks, including MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, BET, and the Paramount movie studio. Viacom’s cable networks generate revenue from advertising sales, fixed monthly subscriber fees, and ancillary revenue from toy licensing, etc. The company benefited from a cyclical rebound in advertising and a shift in audience from broadcast networks to cable. Paramount has posted a series of box office successes, with franchises such as Star Trek, Iron Man, and Transformers. Supported by its strong results and outlook, the company expects to repurchase $6.5 billion of stock over the next two years. More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Verizon Communications Inc
Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) (0.7%) (VZ - $48.93 - NYSE) is one of the world’s leading telecommunications services companies. On February 21, 2014, VZ completed the acquisition of Vodafone’s (0.2%) 45% indirect interest in Verizon Wireless, which was valued at approximately $130 billion. The deal is expected to be immediately accretive to Verizon’s earnings per share by approximately 10%, excluding any non-operating adjustments. Verizon Wireless (VZW) is the largest mobile operator in the U.S. with 103 million retail customers. Verizon expects this transaction to enhance value across platforms and allow the company to operate more efficiently, with continued focus on producing more seamless and integrated products/solutions for its customers. Management believes that full ownership of Verizon Wireless will provide increased opportunities in the enterprise and consumer wireline markets. In April 2014, VZ reported stronger than expected first quarter of 2014 consolidated revenues and EBITDA (driven by wireless outperformance) and reiterated its guidance for top line growth of 4% and adjusted consolidated EBITDA margin expansion More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Swedish Match AB
Swedish Match AB (OSTO:SWMA) (1.5%) (SWMA - $34.72 - Stockholm Stock Exchange) produces tobacco products that include snus and snuff, chewing tobacco, cigars, and lights. The company has been benefiting from the growth of the smokeless tobacco market in both Scandinavia and the U.S., as public smoking bans and health concerns are driving consumers to seek alternative tobacco products to cigarettes. In February 2009, Swedish Match created a joint venture with Philip Morris International to sell Swedish snus in markets around the world, taking advantage of Swedish Match’s brands and production capabilities and Philip Morris International’s distribution network. In September 2009, the company sold its South African pipe tobacco business to Philip Morris International for about 1.9 billion SEK, and it is using most of the proceeds to repurchase shares. In October 2010, Swedish Match combined its European and premium cigar portfolios with Scandinavian cigar and pipe tobacco company STG, creating a new company that will benefit from enhanced scale and synergies. The company’s standstill with STG expires in October 2014, after More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on National Fuel Gas Co
National Fuel Gas Co. (NFG) (0.8%) (NFG - $78.30 - NYSE) is a diversified natural gas company. NFG owns a regulated gas utility serving the region around Buffalo, New York, gas pipelines that move gas between the Midwest and Canada and from the Marcellus to the Northeast, and an oil and gas exploration and production business. NFG’s regulated utility and pipeline businesses, as well as its California oil production business, provide stable earnings and cash flows to support the dividend, while the natural gas production business offers significant upside potential. NFG’s ownership of 800,000 acres in the Marcellus shale, including 745,000 acres in the shale fairway of Pennsylvania, holds enormous natural gas reserve potential, and we believe the position could be worth $3.4 billion based on recent comparable transactions. We continue to expect above- average long term earnings and cash flow growth from rapidly growing gas production and expansion of the strategically located pipeline network. The company has increased its dividend for over forty consecutive years. More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Mondelez International Inc
Mondelez International Inc. (MDLZ) (1.3%) (MDLZ - $37.61 - NASDAQ), headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois, is the new name of Kraft Foods Inc. following the tax-free spinoff to shareholders of the North American grocery company, Kraft Foods Group Inc. (KRFT). On October 1, 2012, shareholders received one share of Mondelēz and one- third share of Kraft Foods Group for every share of Kraft Foods Inc. owned. Post spinoff, approximately 75% of Mondelēz’s revenue is generated from the snacking business, which includes leading brands such as Oreo, LU and Ritz biscuits, Trident gum, and Cadbury and Milka chocolates, while the remaining 25% consists of the international packaged food business, primarily coffee and powdered beverages. In May 2014, Mondelēz announced that it is combining its coffee business with D.E Master Blenders 1753 to form a new coffee company, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, in return for $5 billion of net proceeds and a 49% stake. This narrows the company’s product focus, as only 15% of revenue will be outside snacks, primarily Tang beverages and other products such as Philadelphia More...

Mario Gabelli Comments on Genuine Parts Co
Genuine Parts Co. (GPC) (1.5%) (GPC - $87.80 - NYSE) is an Atlanta based distributor of automotive and industrial replacement parts, office products, and electrical and electronic components. We expect GPC’s well known NAPA Auto Parts group to benefit as an aged vehicle population, which includes the highest percentage of off warranty vehicles in history, helps drive sales of automotive aftermarket products over the next several years. Additionally, economic indicators remain supportive of the company’s industrial and electrical parts distribution businesses amid steady economic expansion. Finally, GPC’s management has shown consistent dedication to shareholder value via share repurchases and dividend increases. More...

The company operates in over one hundred markets worldwide and strives to be the global provider of choice for investment management and investment services. As of December 31, 2013, the firm had $27.6 trillion in assets under custody and $1.6 trillion in assets under management.
