On CAPS, 98% of the 130 members who have rated Mondelez believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, succinctly summed up the Mondelez bull case for our community:

Simply a leaner and meaner company now that it is freed from the North American grocery business at [Kraft Foods Group (NASDAQ: KRFT  ) ].

Trades at a similar P/E and P/CF as it did while it was incorporated with Kraft, which should leave it undervalued as it was the true growth vehicle in recent years.

I find it the more appealing play of the two post spin-off, and believe they are set for a long run internationally. Compared to other confectioneries, Mondelez is flat out cheap.
