COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

Has gone through a number of iterations where it has been a beverage company, the bottlers are in and then out and then in again, and then into snack foods. Rather than the Coke side of things, you might be better with the Monster Beverage (MNST-Q) side. In a sense, you are leveraging the purchasing power of the Coca-Cola papers, because they are going to buy out Monster.

COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

He would love to buy this if it got a lot cheaper. Has a great franchise. The problem with most consumer staples companies is that they are relatively expensive. The recent run-up is largely a function of the decline we have seen in the US$ versus other currencies. The company is structuring challenged in that you are going to see low single digit volume growth. They have tried to refranchise a lot of their bottlers, and are going through some transitional issues. Too expensive and too low a growth.

COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

Not a sector he favours at this time. However, this has been decent, relative to the other names in the space. Trading at about 23.5X Earnings with a 6%-7% growth rate, making it a bit expensive. It gives a 4X PEG ratio, which is the high end of its range. It’s forward PE of 23.5 is at the high end of its 10-year range.

COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

This has been diversifying into other beverages including water and new age beverages. Prefers PepsiCo (PEP-N) which can do foods with snack foods where their focus on growth is. In the short term, both are going to be a little weak. The consumer staples group has done well, but now people are looking to get a little more cyclical, so these 2 are running out of favour in the short term.

COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

Valuation is a little stretched. There is a strong correlation between this and the US$. They generate a lot of sales outside the US, so when the dollar weakens, this does relatively well. They are trying to become less capital intensive, so are getting rid of some of their bottling operations. When they sell those off, they should use that as an opportunity to improve their balance sheet. The carbonated soft drink business is struggling and you are probably going to see only about .05% growth during the next few years. If they focus on their balance sheet, they should be able to generate a modest amount of earnings growth going forward.

One of the world’s great brand names. They are gradually losing market share as people are consuming less. They’ve moved into other beverages. With global retail under pressure, they will be pressured a bit. For the next couple of years, he would prefer to be somewhere else. 3.3% dividend yield.

WATCH
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

It has been relatively flat.  It is coming to the point where it stopped in 2016.  It has to be proving itself to be breaking out and if it does that could be bullish.  It is a neutral looking chart.  $40 would be a good place to buy to trade the range.

Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

A very strong name. The real question is if they can transition from the soft drink business to the healthier side of the business. Recently they announced some layoffs. Good distribution, but you are going to have to see that transition to healthier snacks.

COMMENT
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

Coca-Cola (KO-N) or PepsiCo (PEP-N)? These are both struggling with the carbonated soft drinks side of things. There really hasn’t been much in terms of revenue growth for either. This company has a new CEO coming on board. They have some initiatives they are working on now, but it is going to take some time to grind through. She’ll just watch from the sidelines.

It is 100% a drink company.  Pepsi is more of a food company than a beverage company, which he prefers.

(A Top Pick March 16/16. Down 2%.) This really didn’t go anywhere to excite him. He now prefers Pepsi (PEP-N), which is a bit more dynamic.

HOLD
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

Iconic brand with consistent return on equity.  Buffet owns a large position.  This is a buy, hold and forget-about stock.  They spent decades building their distribution network and it is one of their strengths, besides their recipe.

DON'T BUY
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

He is not a fan and prefers PEP-N.  KO-N is almost exclusively a soft drink company.  Soft drinks are under attack and in decline as people move more and more towards water.  He does not care for the outlook.  Pepsi gets most of its earnings from food – Lays and Quaker.

DON'T BUY
Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)

A sort of serial under performer. From a fundamental basis, it hasn’t made much progress at all, on revenues, margins, earnings, cash flow. They are trying to move away from sugary water and to become healthier. Not doing as good a job as Pepsi has done, and it shows. There is so much more opportunity out there to buy good quality companies that are organically growing with great management and reasonably priced.
