Guru Investment Theses on Moody's Corporation

Bill Nygren Comments on Moody’s - Apr 10, 2017

Moody’s (NYSE:MCO) provides essential information to the world’s capital markets. We have a long history with Moody’s, dating back to the 1990s when it was a part of Dun & Bradstreet. The stock briefly traded for less than 17x 2018 earnings estimates because investors feared that rising interest rates and changing tax policies would depress debt issuance. Although such events would likely result in slower growth in the short term, we believe the company’s long-term prospects remain compelling. Bonds issued with a Moody’s rating pay meaningfully lower interest rates than those without a Moody’s rating, and the price paid to Moody’s is much lower than the interest savings the issuer realizes. We believe this will create consistent demand for bond ratings as debt markets grow. Management is cognizant of the value that the Moody’s rating provides, and they are able to steadily raise prices year after year. In our view, Moody’s is a great business with growing profits, run by a management team we’ve known and respected for years, and the shares trade at a price that is well below our estimate of intrinsic value.

Payrolls for businesses with 49 or fewer employees increased by 76,000 jobs in May, down from an upwardly revised 101,000 in April. Employment at companies with 50-499 employees increased by 63,000 jobs, up from last month's 39,000. Employment at large companies -- those with 500 or more employees -- increased by 34,000, up from April's 25,000. Companies with 500-999 employees added 11,000 and companies with over 1,000 employees added 24,000 this month. Goods-producing employment dropped by 1,000 jobs in May after losing a 7,000 (revised) in April. The construction industry added 13,000 jobs, in line with the previous month. Meanwhile, manufacturing lost 3,000 jobs after losing 10,000 the previous month.

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, said, "Job growth has moderated this spring as energy companies and manufacturers shed jobs. Retailers are also more circumspect in their hiring. Despite the recent slowdown, job growth remains strong enough to reduce underemployment."
