+ Watch KO
on My Watchlist
The world's leading soft-drink company, Coca-Cola's fountain includes everything from Coke to Poweraid to Dasani water.
Pure strength of brand name, products highly popular worldwide. Market leader, good management, financially very sound, and a dividend paying stock. A great value especially since the split two years ago, and now starting to climb again. I treat KO like a bank, only banks aren't as smart a place to park your money. Also, if it's good enough for Berkshire Hathaway, it's good enough for me..... I buy every two weeks, just like depositing in a bank.
KO was sniped via a sold Put option for a entry price of 35. KO is facing headwinds with consumer trends away from sweet beverages in favor of "Healthier beverages." This is contrasted against their efforts to reduce costs and increase market share in other product lines. KO is a mature transnational firm, which traditionally limits large (percentage based) swings against either up or down when compared against indices.Please note: my investment thesis does not include comparison against any indices other than my own. This is a portfolio diversification purchase of a solid wide moat dividend paying stock.
a good stock to buy, good solid dividend history
Carbonated beverages are declining
A proven Market Leader. People are attracted to the brand and the quality taste that is associated with Coca Cola.
One of Warren Buffet's all time favorites-- Coca Cola is a leader within its industry with only a sole main competitor (Pepsi). The company has an international presence and is recognized worldwide. Company has maintained a strong balance sheet over the years with healthy cash flow. Although they lag a bit behind Pepsi in terms of diversity of products offered; KO is still a strong company with further potential and opportunities to grow via possible acquisitions and expansion within the "snacking industry" in the upcoming years. KO also manages to keep aware of trends and shifts in consumer preferences.
Div. (Yield) $1.22 (3.0%)
paired trade to cancel PEP trying for a cash position
Coke and meth it makes America go round.
This is a solid stock to buy if you're okay with holding for the very long term. Its a strong company that has been very consistent and is sure to return good dividends
Health movement in U.S. is an anchor for the company. Emerging markets will improve, but overall growth will be slow.
KO will continue to plug along and do what it does better than anyone else. Tremendous brand strength and a huge host of very widely loved products. It's steady earnings and dividend growth will keep it just ahead of it's other big-cap peers.
Who else wants to buy adult onset diabetes in a can?
Declining revenues; lower consensus earnings estimates and price targets; 4 quarters of flat earnings growth; and, a nosebleed valuation of 2.9 PEG (based on a current estimate of over 6% future growth) more than offset the company's share buyback plans. KO should continue to underperform the market, and its valuation PEG should eventually reflect the overall market valuation PEG through higher growth (unlikely) or a lower stock price.
World domination? Check. Ever expanding world domination? Check. A historically low P/E compared to current growth rates? Check. Does Warren Buffet still own 9% of the company? Check. Do people still get thirsty? Check. If you want one of those "invest and sleep well for a decade" stocks, there are fewer better opportunities in the market right now.
Great business model, adapting to the new rules of the game.
Markets might tend to pull considering great run up since .09. KO is one of the place to be to weather the storm.
