They used to have 74k SKUs and are going to reduce this by a third, maintaining focus on core brands. They are improving their manufacturing facilities, some of which are very old and inefficient. They have identified levers to pull. It is making higher highs and made a higher low recently. 1.5% dividend. About 7% less volatile than the S & P. They are going to pull in $2.5 to 3 billion from selling off some of their brands.

(A Top Pick Sept 11/14. Up 24.29%.) Sold his holdings at around $38. At that point, he was rotating from some of the consumer staples names into the more cyclical names. Still a decent name. A little bit expensive.

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.

The international snack food business that came out of Kraft. It is higher growth than their main staples business. The consumer in emerging markets is growing rapidly. It is an outperformer compared to Staples.

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%.

The question is, will this company deliver accelerated growth as expected. The jury is still out. He thinks you are paying quite a high price for what you are getting. Wouldn’t be a buyer at these levels.

44% emerging market exposure. FX is obviously an issue. They are very well placed longer term. She has a longer term view. The stronger growth is from these emerging markets every 2-5 years if you look back that far. This is a chance to buy or buy more.

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.

Stock vs. Stock. MDLZ-Q vs. KRFT-Q. Fairly expensive. Growth rate will be impacted by strong US dollar. Prefers Nestle because it has a lower multiple to either of the other two.

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).
