  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Rockwell Automation

    Rockwell Automation - Rockwell Automation Inc. (0.9%) (ROK – $155.71 – NYSE) (NYSE:ROK), headquartered in Milwaukee, provides industrial automation, control, and information solutions. Its Architecture & Software segment offers control platforms that perform multiple control disciplines and monitoring of applications, including discrete, batch, and continuous process. Control Product & Solutions provides electronic motors starters and variable frequency drives, along with more project oriented automation solutions. Rockwell stands out as a pure play automation company with an unmatched focus, a technology orientation, and key strategic partnerships, facilitating above peer growth and margins. Rockwell should continue to outgrow the global automation industry, which, in turn, is outgrowing global industrial production as manufacturers replace labor with capital and embrace machine data to optimize their plants and ensure uptime. Emerging market demand for automation in consumer and automotive industries has also been strong in recent years, aligning well with Rockwell’s strengths. The company generates healthy free cash flows, almost all of which it returns to shareholders through dividends and repurchases. Under new CEO Blake Moret, acquisitions could become use of capital, but here too we expected a disciplined and focused approach

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on National Fuel Gas Co.

    National Fuel Gas Co. (0.7%) (NFG – $59.62 – NYSE) (NYSE:NFG) is a diversified natural gas company. NFG owns a regulated gas utility serving the region around Buffalo, New York, gas pipelines that move gas between the Midwest and Canada and from the Marcellus to the Northeast, gathering and processing systems, and an oil and gas exploration and production business. NFG’s regulated utility and pipeline businesses, as well as its California oil production business, provide stable earnings and cash flows to support the dividend, while the natural gas production business offers significant upside potential. While natural gas prices have been depressed over the past few years, NFG’s ownership of 780,000 acres in the Marcellus Shale, holds enormous natural gas reserve potential and the company has proven to be among the lower cost producers. We continue to expect above average long term earnings and cash flow growth from improving gas prices, growing gas production and strategically located pipeline expansion. The company has increased its dividend for 46 consecutive years.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Mondelez International Inc.

    Mondelez International Inc. (2.0%) (MDLZ – $43.08 – NASDAQ) (NASDAQ:MDLZ), 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. Following the contribution of coffee into a new joint venture, nearly 85% of Mondelēz’s $26 billion of revenue is derived from snacking, including 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 D.E 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 including 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.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Honeywell International Inc.

    Honeywell International Inc. (1.4%) (HON – $124.87 – NYSE) (NYSE:HON) operates as a diversified technology company with highly engineered products, including turbine propulsion engines, auxiliary power units, turbochargers, brake pads, environmental and combustion controls, sensors, security and life safety products, resins and chemicals, nuclear services, and process technology for the petrochemical and refining industries. One of the key drivers of HON’s growth is acquisitions that increase the company’s growth profile globally, creating both organic and inorganic opportunities. The company recently acquired Elster Industries, a leading provider of thermal gas solutions, smart meters, software and data analytics for the commercial, industrial and residential heating market. Elster’s gas business offers products in high demand among natural gas customers and brings a strong, global distribution network and numerous cross-selling opportunities for existing HON technologies to new customers. Elster’s gas, electric, and water meters are highly valued for their reliability, safety and accuracy. The company maintains an installed base of more than 200 million meter modules deployed over the course of the last 10 years that generate significant recurring revenues. We believe acquisitions such as Elster should drive meaningful and sustained growth for HON spurred by global energy efficiency initiatives and natural resource management.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Home Depot Inc.

    Home Depot Inc. (1.5%) (HD – $146.83 – NYSE) (NYSE:HD) based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the world’s largest home improvement retailer, with fiscal 2016 revenue of $94.6 billion. Home Depot has 2,278 retail stores, which sell a range of building materials, home improvement products, and lawn and garden products, to do-it-yourself, do-it-for-me, and professional customers. We expect the continued improvement in the housing market to provide uplift to Home Depot’s business, encouraging consumers to invest in their homes. Notably, the company generates significant cash flow, has a strong balance sheet, and will continue to benefit as the housing recovery improves. To make use of its available cash flow, we expect Home Depot will continue to repurchase stock.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Deere & Co.

    Deere & Co. - Deere & Co. (0.6%) (DE – $108.86 - NYSE) (NYSE:DE), headquartered in Moline, IL, is a leading global manufacturer of machinery for agricultural, construction, and forestry usage. Its dominant position in North American agricultural equipment markets optimally positions the company for what is expected to be an increase in demand for agricultural equipment both in the near term given cycle dynamics as well as for the long term, as global population and income growth drive crop demand in the coming decades.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Bank of New York Mellon Corp

    Bank of New York Mellon Corp. (2.9% of net assets as of March 31, 2017) (BK – $47.23 – NYSE) (NYSE:BK) is a global leader in providing financial services to institutions and individuals.

Going forward, we expect BK to benefit from rising global incomes and the cross border movement of financial transactions. We believe BK is also well positioned to grow earnings in a rising interest rate environment, given its large customer cash deposits and significant loan book.

  • The Gabelli Equity Income Fund 1st Quarter Shareholder Commentary

    To Our Shareholders,

      


  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Viacom Inc.

    Viacom Inc.(5.7%)(VIA–$38.50–NASDAQ)(NASDAQ:VIA) is a pure-play content company that owns a global stable of cable networks, including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, VH1, BET, and the Paramount movie studio. Viacom’s cable networks generate revenue from advertising sales, fixed monthly subscriber fees, and ancillary revenue from toy licensing, etc. We believe a low valuation and M&A potential outweigh the secular risks of cord-cutting.

The company manufactures televisions, PlayStation game consoles, mobile phone handsets, and cameras. It also operates the Columbia film studio and Sony Music entertainment group. We expect the new PlayStation launch and operational improvements in consumer electronics and entertainment to generate EBITDA growth through 2018. We also think the spinoff of the entertainment assets could be a catalyst.
