Morningstar | General Mills' Competitive Edge Persists, but Secular Headwinds Prompt Moat Downgrade to Narrow

We remain confident that strong brand equity, preferred status with retailers, and cost advantage have secured General Mills a competitive edge. However, as consumers increasingly shop for unprocessed, fresh fare in lieu of these well-established brands, we have lost our conviction that General Mills will report outsize returns for the next 20 years, a metric required for a wide moat rating, and as such, we are revising our moat rating to narrow. General Mills is the market leader in cereal, baking mixes and ingredients, refrigerated dough, and natural pet food, and it holds the number-two spo...

General Mills' Competitive Edge Persists, but Secular Headwinds Prompt Moat Downgrade to Narrow

While wide-moat General Mills largely ended the year in line with our expectations, we suspect concerns around the firm's organic growth prospects remain an overhang on shares. Fiscal 2019 sales growth fell slightly short of our expectations (with sales up 7.2%, versus our estimate of nearly 8%), with organic sales remaining flat (including a 1% decline in the fourth quarter) versus our expectations for slightly below 1% growth. However, we were pleased to see profitability strengthen, with full...

Below we highlight several negative developments which lead us to a more cautious outlook. • Consumer Staples upgrade; RS improving for defensive areas. We are upgrading Consumer Staples to market weight due to RS bullishly inflecti...
