Guru Investment Theses on Donaldson Co Inc

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Donaldson - Mar 31, 2015

Minneapolis-based Donaldson (DCI) is a long time Mairs and Power holding, familiar to the firm but new to the Small Cap Fund. The manufacturer of filtration systems and replacement parts in a variety of industries was affected by recent weakness in off-highway vehicle (and Donaldson filters) sales creating an attractive opportunity for the Small Cap Fund to initiate a position in the stock.

Mairs & Power Balanced Fund Comments on Donaldson Co Inc - Oct 20, 2014

A case in point is portfolio holding Donaldson & Co., Inc. (DCI), one of the leading international manufacturers of high-tech filtration solutions for engines. For the past century, despite interest- rate shocks, stock market corrections and world wars, Donaldson has prospered and grown. Faced with a global slowdown in construction projects, Donaldson’s sales growth slowed and its stock price declined – while earnings held their ground and even increased slightly. To Mairs & Power, nothing fundamental changed for Donaldson. Our assessment of the firm’s long-term growth prospects is still supported by the quantitative data and our qualitative findings that matter most in our selection process. Rather, the impact of short-term, negative market perceptions on consistently growing companies like Donaldson offers us an incentive to add to a position we already like at an attractive price.
