Morningstar | 3M Continues Performing Well Amid China Headwinds, but Shares Are No Bargain

We think of 3M as a GDP-plus business. In 3M’s case, the "plus" is a testament to the value-additive nature of the company's products, churned out by its virtually inimitable research and development platform. Unlike many diversified industrials companies, 3M has committed to leveraging innovation across its disparate businesses, making it worth more than the sum of its parts. This commitment manifests itself in the apportionment of just under 6% of net sales to R&D, which we expect to continue until 2023. We forecast the firm will earn about $9 in gross profit for every dollar spent on R&D. O...

3M Continues Performing Well Amid China Headwinds, but Shares Are No Bargain

Wide-moat rated 3M had a decent fourth quarter that was broadly in line with both our fourth-quarter and full-year expectations. As we roll our model forward, we anticipate modestly raising our fair value estimate by about 1% based mostly on time value of money and new pension assumptions. We are leaving our long-run expectations relatively intact. We may make some additional minor changes as the firm releases both its annual report and its sub-segment information. Even so, we are retaining our ...

Morningstar | 3M’s Latest Acquisition May Give the Firm a Stronger Footing in Helping Improve Patient Outcomes

Wide-moat 3M announced that it agreed to acquire the technology business of M*Modal in a deal valued at an enterprise value of $1.0 billion, or 10 times adjusted annual EBITDA for the 12 months following the transaction. The market reacted negatively to the deal, possibly due to the deal being dilutive to EPS by $0.10 next year, according to management. The press release doesn’t disclose either 3M’s target revenue growth assumptions, nor its expectations for synergies, but the 10 times multiple seems relatively in line with the three public peers we compared the deal with (M*Modal is a private...
