Guru Investment Theses on Avon Products Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Avon Products - Jan 25, 2016

Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) is a manufacturer and marketer of beauty and related products. Avon’s turnaround has been hampered by the difficulties imposed by an emerging market slowdown and the strength of the US dollar temporarily impairing the company’s operating profits and cash flow. Despite headwinds, Avon continues to make progress in identifying and fixing the challenges involving representative engagement and the company’s supply chain. The recent decision to raise equity and sell Avon’s North American business should help accelerate the growth of revenue and earnings. We trimmed our position during the fourth quarter to harvest a tax loss.



From the Weitz Funds' Hickory Fund shareholder letter for fourth quarter 2015.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Avon Products - Nov 06, 2015

Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) is a manufacturer and marketer of beauty and related products. As management guides the company through an operational turnaround in North America and tries to build a more enduring foundation in all of its markets, Avon continues to suffer from the difficulties imposed by an emerging market slowdown. While Avon has demonstrated some progress in its long turnaround, worries over macroeconomic conditions, the continued strength of the dollar and the weakness of the Brazilian Real have made forecasting difficult. Management has been forced to respond to immediate issues at the expense of longer-term challenges involving representative engagement and the company’s supply chain. We believe management is up to the difficult task of balancing out the company’s short- and long-term investments. Avon has an extensive operating history in Latin America and has managed through several currency crises in these countries. While global challenges remain, the turmoil in Latin America may actually help the company in its recovery as women seek to supplement depressed incomes by selling Avon’s products. We have continued to add to the position over the calendar year on price weakness.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Avon Products - Oct 16, 2014

We bought relatively small new positions in Willis Group Holdings and Avon Products in the third quarter. Avon (AVP) is a direct selling, branded beauty business undergoing a turnaround in the U.S. market. The overwhelming majority of Avon’s business value comes from its stronger positions in Latin America and other emerging markets. Our investment thesis is that well-run direct selling can be a decent business with solid margins and high returns, that the Avon brand is not fundamentally broken, and that the U.S. business is bottoming as evidenced by break-even results in the most recent quarter. Avon has a wider range of potential outcomes than our typical investment and is sized accordingly.

Yacktman Funds Comments on Avon Products - Mar 12, 2014

Avon Products Inc. shares declined due to poor quarterly results and increased market concerns about fines related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigation. Turnarounds generally take time, and we continue to have confidence that the new management team is taking the correct steps to improve the business. We believe the concerns about the potential magnitude of FCPA fines are overstated given the practices that Avon Products Inc. is being investigated for as well as previous FCPA fines levied on other firms. The shares remain inexpensive based on our assessment of normalized earnings and the potential value to a strategic buyer.

How Can You Avoid Value Traps in This Market? It’s important to differentiate between a value trap and a value opportunity
When the stock market turns bad, like it has been recently, investors find it extremely difficult to remain positive. As a result, people tend to be more cynical during bad times than they would normally be during better times. When this happens, it becomes all too easy to paint every stock in the stock market with the same negative brush. Since most stocks will, temporarily at least, experience falling prices during a bad market, the distinction between good stocks and bad stocks can become blurred. Read more...
