Guru Investment Theses on Kraft Foods Group Inc

John Keeley Comments on Kraft - Dec 11, 2012

In corporate restructuring, the activity has been robust. We held a number of larger-cap companies prior to their spin-offs, and now a few of those such as Kraft (KRFT) have completed their break-up and have begun trading as stand-alone entities. We see value in both companies and continue to hold both positions in the portfolio.

From Keeley Funds’ 2012 annual report.
