+ 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.
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.
Slow growth will cause this stock to underperform in the short term. Great stock to own in bad times though.
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.
Div. (Yield) $1.22 (3.2%)Current Yield . . . . . . .3.73%
KO has underperformed the S&P for the past year (after a pretty decent run-up the year before). Over the long term, KO will not continue to underperform the S&P, so I am investing in it here, especially as we start heading into some potentially capricous times for the market.
Coca Cola Co has the power to manoeuvre any major headwinds as they have demonstrated over the 127 years they have been refreshing the world. I have confidence that the will keep growing, developing new and redeveloping existing products to suit the market.
Signs of competition from within the U.S. along with slowing market growth in the U. S., and even though emerging markets are still fairly open, KO is beginning to feet some competitive pressure on the international front, I wouldn't count KO out by any means however l do think they have become a little stodgy and need to kick things up a bit.
Brand recognition. Solid company with good dividend. Good place to park money for the bumpy ride ahead.
dividend yield is 3% highest in 5 years. increase should happen in the next 3 months
Because of green mountain tied up.
Fundamentals as a company, acquisitions, commitment to shareholders (rock solid dividend increase consistency)
DCF modeled equity valuation ~ $59 = current stock price as of 2/5 $37.50 is grossly undervalued. Expect flight to blue chip, slow & steady, stable dividend companies in 2014.
coke rots the teeth
One of the most powerful brands in the world. Definition of consistency
Excellent market position
Coca-Cola's vast financial resources and market leadership should enable this company to adapt to the shift in consumer demand away from carbonated sodas over the long term.
great co. with good divd.
