Guru Investment Theses on Nestle SA

David Winters Comments on Nestle SA - Mar 12, 2014

Nestlé SA (NSRGY) ("Nestlé") is an example of a high quality company which missed out on a big portion of the market's rally in 2013. Nestlé isn't just chocolate bars and candies, although they do own such brands as Baby Ruth, Butterfinger and Raisinets, along with SweeTarts and Gobstoppers. Nestlé is also Nescafe and Coffee- mate, Nestea, Nesquick, and Juicy Juice. In the ice cream segment, Nestlé is Edy's, Haagen-Dazs, Dreyers, Skinny Cow, and of course Drumstick. Nestlé is also Stouffers, DiGiorno, and Lean Cuisine, along with Purina pet products and infant nutrition products such as Gerber. This is not a complete list of the Nestlé brands, but it is a good sampling that demonstrates the company's purposeful role in feeding many people and their pets around the world every day.

Negative sentiment regarding Nestlé's short-term revenue growth and profit margins contributed to a lackluster performance of their shares in 2013. Fear that a slow-down in emerging markets growth is permanent fails to acknowledge that there are billions of people around the world who want a better life and are now realizing they have an opportunity to more fully participate in consumer products that have long been available in the United States. Nestlé's dividend yield, as of year-end, in the strong currency of Swiss Francs, is greater than both the current yields of one-year U.S. Treasury Bills ("U.S. T-Bills") and the ten-year U.S. Treasury Note. Ironically, the majority of investors still favor lower-yielding fixed income investments that have almost no potential to appreciate. To combat these issues, Nestlé's management has moved quickly to fix up or sell underperforming and non-core businesses, ranging from its Jenny Craig diet business to its share of flavoring company Givaudan. With over 40% of its revenue coming from growing emerging markets and a strong portfolio of food brands that provides the company with pricing power, we believe Nestlé will be a consistent performer for the Fund. With sentiment on Nestlé so poor, we saw a rare opportunity to initiate a position in long-dated call options on Nestlé shares at what we believe to be a very reasonable price. These options give the Fund the right, but not the obligation, to purchase Nestlé shares at any time before December 2017 at share prices of 60 and 68 Swiss Francs per share, not far from the 66.15 Swiss Francs per share where they finished trading in 2013. If Nestlé shares have even modest price appreciation by 2017, the Fund stands to reap a handsome return on the call options. Although these options carry more risk than simply owning the underlying shares, we believe the risk/reward equation is firmly in our favor in this case. Rather than let the whims of market sentiment dictate what we buy and sell, we instead aim to use this volatility to put cash to work in opportunities such as these Nestlé call options.



From David Winters (Trades, Portfolio)' Wintergreen Fund (Trades, Portfolio)s 2013 message to shareholders.

Bill Nygren Comments on Nestle SA - Oct 08, 2013

Nestle S.A. (NSRGY - $70)(NSGRY)
Nestle is a global leader in packaged foods with $100 billion of revenue and operations in over 70 countries. The company has more than 25 brands with sales over $1 billion, with leading market share in most of their product categories. With broad exposure to high-growth emerging markets, Nestle has enjoyed strong and consistent revenue growth. Like many of our holdings, Nestle generates more cash than they need to run the business, so the company has used a significant portion of its excess cash to repurchase shares and pay dividends. Over the past four years, Nestle has reduced their share count by over 10%. We think this is a high quality, stable business that deserves to sell at a premium, so we initiated a position when Nestle was priced at a discount to other global consumer products companies due to concerns about Europe.

Chris Davis Comments on Nestle SA
Another example of a global market leader is Swiss-based Nestlé (XSWX:NESN, NSRGY). Its portfolio of brands, mostly serving the global food and beverage market segments, include Gerber baby food products, Poland Spring water and Purina pet food, among many others. Nestlé sales show broad geographic diversification with revenues spread almost evenly among the United States, Europe and emerging economies. The company has a long history of disciplined capital allocation and regularly returns cash to shareholders through share buybacks and annual dividends. Read more...
