••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Gabelli Funds Comments on Mondelez International Inc. Guru stock highlight
Mondelez International Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) (2.1%) (MDLZ – $45.51 – NASDAQ) headquartered in Deerfield, is the renamed Kraft Foods Inc. following the tax-free spin-off to shareholders on October 1, 2012 of the North American grocery business. Following the contribution of coffee into a new joint venture, nearly 85% of Mondelēz’s $27 billion of revenue is derived from snacking, which includes leading brands such as Oreo, LU and Ritz biscuits, Trident gum and Cadbury and Milka chocolates. On July 2, 2015 Mondelēz contributed its coffee business with DE Master Blenders 1753 to form a new coffee company, Jacobs Douwe Egberts. Subsequently, MDLZ exchanged part of its stake in this coffee joint venture for 24% ownership in Keurig Green Mountain, which was acquired by an investor group led by JAB Holding Co. in March 2016. This narrows the company’s product focus, as only 15% of revenue will be outside snacks, mostly Tang beverages and other products, such as Philadelphia cream cheese, which management may look to divest in the future as it executes on its plan to accelerate growth and improve margins in the faster growing Read more...
