Buying KO on weakness has been a pretty successful strategy since 1892.

Experimental DCF shows $43 value, $35 with 20% margin of safety. Assumptions are 20% returns on capital and 7.5% WACC, based on 5 yr averages. This is one of my first attempts at calculating WACC by hand and using that as the discount rate. Also took 5 yr avg ROIC of 20% - 7.5% WACC to get a 12.5% growth rate, which I rounded down to 12%.

I've read a few pretty good articles stating that WACC should NOT be used as the discount rate.

So take those previous numbers with a grain of salt. I am NOT overly confident in them.

KO is an epic company however, and it's not a bad buy if bought at a reasonable price.
