44% is emerging markets. They are number one in chocolates and candies; number two in gum. Emerging markets are less private label centric so there is less competition. There is big potential in those countries. They have two active shareholders now and will keep management on track.

There is some thought this could be a take out candidate. A very popular stock with brokers right now, because they are undertaking a very ambitious cost cutting program, which is expected to raise margins significantly. He is skeptical in the medium and long term success of that. Not something he would chase at these prices.

This is 44% emerging markets. They are the number 1 player in biscuits, chocolates, candy and number 2 in gum. Most of those categories have very little private label competition, which is good for pricing. This is really a play on emerging markets for their growing consumer middle class. She sees a lot of runway. FX has been a headwind but she thinks the market has chosen to look through that and to recognize the long-term growth opportunities. The company has been embarking on a margin improvement program as their margins are quite a bit lower than their peers. Yield of 1.6%.

She likes this company. They will be reporting very soon and earnings have been revised downward because of currency. Have high exposure to emerging markets. She owns this for the long-term secular play of the emerging consumer class in the emerging markets. Operationally they are implementing programs to improve their margins.

Mondelez (MDLZ-Q) or Kraft (KRFT-Q)? This is effectively the high growth story and a lower dividend, while Kraft is slower growth and higher dividend. Not sure the market has actually seen that this way as they have rewarded the high dividend Kraft story. This has much lower debt. He likes both stories, but he finds it difficult to digest the multiples on both stories. If there was a decent retracement on the stocks, that would be the time to add.

This was a spinoff from Kraft (KRFT-Q), which took the grocery area. The more growthier parts went to this company. They have quite a big exposure to Europe and emerging markets. He is seeing inflation starting to creep in to their input costs, and they aren’t really able to pass those costs on to consumers. That is squeezing margins. Also, the world is becoming a healthier place, so snacks, salty foods and sugar filled foods tend to be running into a little headwind.

A spinoff from Kraft (KRFT-Q). An emerging markets’ story with about 45% in emerging markets. The consumption of chocolate, biscuits and candy is very low in emerging markets compared to developed markets. Once there is more money in emerging markets, there will be an increased demand for their goods. Operating margins are quite a bit lower than their peers. There is an activist shareholder on board who has suggested that the company be acquired by another company. She would much prefer this over Saputo (SAP-T).

(A Top Pick June 11/13. Up 29.42%.) About 45% is in emerging markets, which is one of the reasons she likes it. Their main categories are biscuits, candies and chocolate. In developing markets, consumption per capital in those categories is very low so there is lots of growth potential as the consuming class expands.

Diversification into snack foods products. Predictable and it has worked out well for him and made a lot of money. A leader in its space. Quality management team and good financials. Buy and hold for the long term. 1.5% dividend was increased back in the summer. It will go up as time progresses.

The snack part spinoff from Kraft (KRFT-Q). There are a few things that are really good about this company. The space is really a growth space, especially in emerging markets where they have a fairly good representation. His problem with the stock is its valuation. He finds it fully priced without a lot of room for growth. Also, there is some risk of capital.

Would you choose Kraft (KRFT-Q) or Mondelez (MDLZ-Q)? Doesn’t follow these closely but does know that Mondelez is a consumer beverage. Probably the better play going forward is Kraft. Good sector to be in. He would probably take a profit on Mondelez and buy Kraft and then maybe staple on some Starbucks (SBUX-Q) as well.

Kraft Foods (KRFT-Q) or Mondelez International (MDLZ-Q)? He owned Kraft originally and it spun off with the Kraft and Mondelez shares. Held them for a while. Recently sold off his Kraft position as he wants to sell off some of his consumer staple names and going to more cyclical. If you are looking for yield and dividend (close to 4%), Kraft will provide that. Mondelez touches on emerging markets with higher growth snacks businesses and you get a dividend of almost 2%.
