UBS analyst Cody Ross initiates coverage on Mondelez International (NASDAQ: MDLZ) with a Buy rating and a price target of $73.00.

The analyst comments "MDLZ has one of the most attractive portfolio among US Packaged Food producers. Roughly 80% of its sales are in fast growing biscuits and chocolate categories, while 35% of sales are in EM. We believe MDLZ’s portfolio is on more firm footing coming out of COVID given the increase in HH penetration and repeat purchase rate. Meanwhile, we forecast 6% organic growth in EM driven by the long runway for distribution growth, especially in India and China. With the help from additional portfolio reshaping efforts, 4% organic sales growth could be in sight. We believe the stock could-rerate higher if MDLZ can sustain a 4%+ long-term organic growth rate and shrink the gap with PG."
