Arvind Mallik and Jonathon Fite of KMF Investments presented their in-depth thesis on Teva Pharma (US: TEVA) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2019.
Teva Pharma is a global leader in generic and specialty medicines. Teva has developed and produced medicines for more than a century and maintains a portfolio of 35,000+ products in nearly every therapeutic area. More than 200 million people around the world take a Teva medicine every day. A world dominator in its category, Teva has scale moats in its generics business, and an R&D/patent moat in its specialty and biopharmaceutical product lines. The pharmaceutical industry, in spite of attractive non-cyclicality and secular growth, is out of favor due to pricing pressures and legal exposures. Trading at just 4x owner earnings, Teva is in “deep value” territory and could offer strong returns as its skilled new CEO continues his turnaround efforts. Last year’s purchase of Teva shares by Berkshire Hathway, and more recent insider buying of $1 million in shares by Teva’s chairman adds to Arvind and Jonathon’s conviction in the investment thesis.
