GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Mondelez International Inc

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez - Dec 09, 2016

On October 26, Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) reported third quarter 2016 results. Underlying organic growth was generally in-line with the company’s categories at nearly 2%, including volume growth of 1.3%. This was the third straight quarter of positive underlying volume growth and a sequential acceleration from the second quarter. We note that Mondelez is one of the few large cap packaged food companies that is demonstrating any underlying volume growth, however modest. While the global growth rate of Mondelez’s snacking categories has moderated over the course of the year primarily due to macroeconomic headwinds, we continue to believe that the long-term outlook for these categories remains robust, especially in the emerging markets where Mondelez has large market shares and robust routes to market.

Operating profit margins expanded by 220 basis points to 15.8% in the quarter, driven primarily by a reduction in overhead costs as a percentage of sales reflecting the implementation of zero-based budgeting and the rollout of global shared services, as well as an increase in gross margin reflecting the company’s supply chain transformation. Year-to-date, the company continues to show progress with its significant cost savings opportunity and productivity initiatives, and remains on track to reach its 2018 margin target of 17% to 18% with further upside beyond 2018.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Mondelez International Inc. - Nov 02, 2016

Mondelez International Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) (2.0%) (MDLZ $43.90 – NASDAQ) headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois, is the renamed Kraft Foods Inc. following the tax-free spin-off to shareholders of the North American grocery business on October 1, 2012. Mondelēz’s approximately $26 billion of revenue is derived primarily 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 combined 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 snack business. On August 26, Mondelez confirmed that discussions relating to a potential combination with Hershey had ended. Hershey initially confirmed on June 30 that it received and rejected a preliminary indication of interest from Mondelēz to acquire Hershey for $107 per share in cash and stock, demonstrating Mondelez’s continued interest in pursuing acquisitions while remaining an independent company.

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez - Aug 29, 2016

On June 30, 2016, press reports, which were later confirmed, stated that Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) had made an offer to acquire The Hershey Company for $107 per share in a half-cash, half-stock transaction. While an acquisition of Hershey would certainly strengthen Mondelez's confectionery presence in North America, whether or not a deal creates value for shareholders depends on the price paid, the acquisition currency used and, as importantly, the potential for significant cost savings at Hershey.

We believe that Mondelez shares are currently undervalued, and that the issuance of Mondelez stock at current prices to fund the acquisition of Hershey would likely be costly for Mondelez shareholders. More importantly, if Mondelez were to acquire Hershey or any other company, management must continue to be accountable for its own target of 17% to 18% operating profit margins by 2018 at the existing Mondelez business, excluding the impact or benefit of any acquisitions. We expect that shareholders would fmd it unacceptable for an acquisition of Hershey by Mondelez to delay or derail the productivity and cost savings transformation currently underway at the company.

On July 27, 2016, Mondelez reported second quarter 2016 results. Underlying organic growth was generally in-line with Mondelez's categories at 2.5%, including volume growth of nearly 1% which was a sequential acceleration of 60 basis points from the first quarter. While we believe that the long-term outlook for the global snacks categories in which Mondelez participates remains robust, the company is currently facing short-term headwinds from slowing emerging market economies.

Operating profit margins expanded by 265 basis points to 15% in the quarter driven primarily by a 200 basis point reduction in overhead costs as a percentage of sales reflecting the implementation of zero-based budgeting as well as an increase in gross margin reflecting the company's supply chain transformation. Year-to-date, the company continues to show progress with its significant cost savings opportunity and productivity initiatives.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Mondelez - Jul 26, 2016

Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ), a leading snack company with iconic brands such as Oreo, Trident and Cadbury, contributed 32 basis points to the Fund’s return, as its stock rose 13.4% from $40.12 to $45.51. The stock spiked at the end of the quarter after the company made a $23 billion bid for Hershey in an effort to create the world’s largest candy maker. Although Hershey swiftly rejected the offer, Mondelez’s stock still rallied, because Mondelez itself is an acquisition target. Many investors believe Mondelez approached Hershey in order to fend off an acquirer. While we don’t know how economy. U.S. investors are worried that slowing European growth will reduce export demand for American companies. Additionally, the decline in value of the British pound and euro make a bad situation worse, because revenue earned in these currencies is now worth less when converted into U.S. dollars. If this story about concerns over a foreign economy sounds familiar, that’s because it is. The S&P 500 has endured two 10% corrections over the past year due to China’s slowing economy and falling currency. China and the European Union together represent one-third of the global economy, so there are good reasons to be concerned.

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez - May 11, 2016

We continue to believe that the opportunity for productivity improvement and margin expansion at Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) is significant. In February, the company announced a 2018 operating margin target of 17% to 18%. This target reflects some of the steps the company has taken over the last several years to improve its supply chain, reduce portfolio complexity, and rationalize overhead while increasing advertising and promotion. While we believe that the business is capable of higher margins, if Mondelez were to only achieve management’s target, the business would be worth significantly more than its current public market valuation.

On April 27th, Mondelez reported first quarter 2016 results. Underlying organic growth continued its sequential acceleration, increasing about 3% in the quarter with volume up slightly. This was the best quarter for volume in two years, with growth in developed markets and in emerging markets excluding Brazil and Russia, both of which are in recession. Global growth for the snacks categories in which Mondelez participates remains healthy despite short-term demand weakness in some emerging economies. Management was confident about continued volume growth for the full year, citing the returns on their incremental brand investments and the closing of price gaps with competitors. Operating margins expanded by nearly 300 bps to just under 16% driven primarily by gross margin productivity including a substantial contribution from improvements in Mondelez’s manufacturing base.

On March 16th, we completed a block sale of 20 million shares of MDLZ. We now own a 5.7% stake in the company and are the third largest owner. We reduced our stake for portfolio management reasons, as it had become an outsized position, in light of its initially large size and its outperformance relative to other holdings. Mondelez remains our largest investment.

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez - Jan 27, 2016

As a result of relative stock price movements in our portfolio, Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) became a disproportionately large position in the funds, and Valeant became a smaller and, in our view, even more attractive investment. At year end, while we believed Mondelez was trading at a significant discount to intrinsic value, we reduced our stake in Mondelez through the sale of forward contracts representing 15 million shares at an average price of ~$44 per share, reducing our total ownership in stock and derivatives to ~105 million shares. We redeployed some of this capital by increasing our investment in Valeant through the net purchase of option contracts on the company, which we discussed in detail in our third quarter letter. We continue to be highly optimistic about the potential for Mondelez as it improves its operational efficiency and continues to grow while remaining an attractive merger candidate, and therefore, we expect to remain a substantial, long-term holder. While we are long-term investors, we always seek to optimize the risk/return profile of the portfolio by changing the weightings of existing holdings and comparing portfolio holdings with new investment opportunities, making adjustments and wholesale changes when appropriate.

GAMCO Investors Comments on Mondelez International Inc. - Dec 22, 2015

Mondelez International Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) (1.8%) (MDLZ – $41.87 – NASDAQ), headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois, is the renamed Kraft Foods Inc. following the 2012 tax-free spin-off to shareholders of the North American grocery business. Following the contribution of coffee into a new joint venture, nearly 85% of Mondelēz’s $28 billion of revenue is derived from snacks, which include 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, in return for €3.8 billion of proceeds and a 44% stake. This narrows the company’s product focus, as only 15% of revenue will be outside snacks, mostly Tang beverages and 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 snack business.

Bill Ackman Comments on Modelez - Dec 16, 2015

Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ)

Mondelez is our largest position and a classic Pershing Square investment in a high quality, simple, predictable business with attractive long-term growth, and multiple opportunities to create shareholder value.

Since our announcement of the investment, we have had constructive meetings with CEO Irene Rosenfeld and senior management. We have discussed what we believe to be key sources of opportunity for the company, including numerous productivity initiatives. Management appears receptive to our outside perspective, analysis, and recommendations.

We maintain our belief that the opportunity for productivity improvement and margin expansion at Mondelez is vast – the largest in the large cap consumer packaged goods sector. The company’s operating profit margins were 12% last year, and are estimated to be roughly 14% in 2015, well below what they can or should be given the company’s attractive categories, dominant brands, and enormous scale.

On October 28th , Mondelez reported third quarter results. Organic growth for the quarter was 3.7%, driven by pricing actions. Gross margins expanded by an impressive 225 basis points (bps) driven mostly by base productivity programs. This increase does not yet reflect the benefits of the company’s supply chain reinvention, which we anticipate will boost gross margins by several hundred basis points in 2016 and beyond.

Operating profit margins increased 210 bps in the quarter as management increased advertising and consumer promotion investments while decreasing overhead. Management reaffirmed full-year guidance for 2015 and its commitment to achieving a 15% to 16% EBIT margin in 2016.

We believe multiple opportunities exist to expand margins significantly beyond this range in 2017 and thereafter.

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez - Sep 11, 2015

Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ)



On August 6, 2015, Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. announced a 7.5% stake in Mondelez, which we acquired at approximately $40 per share. The investment is comprised of common shares, forward purchase contracts, and long-term, in-the-money call options.



Mondelez is one of the world’s largest snack companies with over $30 billion in revenues and a market capitalization of approximately $70 billion. The company, which owns an extremely high quality stable of brands including Cadbury, Oreo, Nabisco and Trident, was created out of the break-up of Kraft Foods in 2012.



Mondelez is a classic Pershing Square investment— a high quality, simple, predictable, free-cash-flow-generative business with attractive growth prospects and an enormous opportunity for margin enhancement. We like the snacks business because of the high profit margins the category enjoys, the economic “moats” surrounding the established brands, and the opportunity to grow these brands over the long term in the emerging markets, which represent approximately 40% of Mondelez’s sales. As a relatively low-priced luxury, emerging market sales for Mondelez continue to show high rates of growth despite recent economic deterioration in a number of these markets. Despite owning some of the best brands in the industry and participating in highly profitable categories, Mondelez has the lowest profit margins in its peer group, presenting a large opportunity to increase operational efficiency. We believe that the opportunity for substantially greater operating efficiency exists at Mondelez because it is effectively a new company created through the combination of Nabisco, LU Biscuit, and Cadbury – three acquisitions made by legacy Kraft that have never been fully integrated or optimized.



Pershing Square has a long history with the company and its predecessors. We first invested in Cadbury in 2007. We were a shareholder of Kraft when it acquired Cadbury in 2010, and publicly supported the acquisition. We were also a shareholder of Mondelez after the break-up of Kraft in 2012, and exited in 2013 when we needed capital for other opportunities. We know the company well and have developed a good, constructive relationship with CEO Irene Rosenfeld over the years.



We believe that now is an attractive time to invest in Mondelez because its profit margins are just beginning to expand after several years of limited improvement. In addition, we believe that 3G Capital, through its ownership of Heinz, and now Kraft, has established new benchmarks for operational efficiency, organizational design and management alignment which have allowed 3G companies to be more profitable, nimbler, and better positioned to grow over the long-term. We believe that 3G’s higher standards for operating performance will catalyze a competitive response in the packaged food industry, leading to greater operating margins and profitability for Mondelez and other companies in the industry.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Mondelez International Inc - May 28, 2015

We sold Mondelez (MDLZ) as price converged with our value. The stock returned 45% since our late 2012 purchase when Kraft spun out the global snacking and food brands, including Nabisco, Cadbury, and Trident, and renamed the company Mondelez. Although emerging market sales weakened, CEO Irene Rosenfeld preserved value per share through margin improvements, share repurchases, and value-accretive moves such as placing the coffee business in a joint venture with DE Master Blenders. This was our third successful investment in Nabisco’s brands. Each time we were able to purchase this juggernaut at a readily ascertainable discount, directly or through a larger company. We hope for another opportunity down the road.

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez Guru stock highlight
On October 26, Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) reported third quarter 2016 results. Underlying organic growth was generally in-line with the company’s categories at nearly 2%, including volume growth of 1.3%. This was the third straight quarter of positive underlying volume growth and a sequential acceleration from the second quarter. We note that Mondelez is one of the few large cap packaged food companies that is demonstrating any underlying volume growth, however modest. While the global growth rate of Mondelez’s snacking categories has moderated over the course of the year primarily due to macroeconomic headwinds, we continue to believe that the long-term outlook for these categories remains robust, especially in the emerging markets where Mondelez has large market shares and robust routes to market.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Mondelez International Inc. Guru stock highlight
Mondelez International Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) (2.0%) (MDLZ – $43.90 – NASDAQ) headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois, is the renamed Kraft Foods Inc. following the tax-free spin-off to shareholders of the North American grocery business on October 1, 2012. Mondelēz’s approximately $26 billion of revenue is derived primarily 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 combined 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 snack business. On August 26, Mondelez Read more...
Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez Guru stock highlight
On June 30, 2016, press reports, which were later confirmed, stated that Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) had made an offer to acquire The Hershey Company for $107 per share in a half-cash, half-stock transaction. While an acquisition of Hershey would certainly strengthen Mondelez's confectionery presence in North America, whether or not a deal creates value for shareholders depends on the price paid, the acquisition currency used and, as importantly, the potential for significant cost savings at Hershey.

Mondelez International Inc.

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.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Mondelez Guru stock highlight
Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ), a leading snack company with iconic brands such as Oreo, Trident and Cadbury, contributed 32 basis points to the Fund’s return, as its stock rose 13.4% from $40.12 to $45.51. The stock spiked at the end of the quarter after the company made a $23 billion bid for Hershey in an effort to create the world’s largest candy maker. Although Hershey swiftly rejected the offer, Mondelez’s stock still rallied, because Mondelez itself is an acquisition target. Many investors believe Mondelez approached Hershey in order to fend off an acquirer. While we don’t know how economy. U.S. investors are worried that slowing European growth will reduce export demand for American companies. Additionally, the decline in value of the British pound and euro make a bad situation worse, because revenue earned in these currencies is now worth less when converted into U.S. dollars. If this story about concerns over a foreign economy sounds familiar, that’s because it is. The S&P 500 has endured two 10% corrections Read more...

Bill Ackman Comments on Mondelez Guru stock highlight
We continue to believe that the opportunity for productivity improvement and margin expansion at Mondelez (NASDAQ:MDLZ) is significant. In February, the company announced a 2018 operating margin target of 17% to 18%. This target reflects some of the steps the company has taken over the last several years to improve its supply chain, reduce portfolio complexity, and rationalize overhead while increasing advertising and promotion. While we believe that the business is capable of higher margins, if Mondelez were to only achieve management’s target, the business would be worth significantly more than its current public market valuation.
