It is considered consumer defensive. We will probably see it bounce a tiny bit and then if it resumed going up it would bump off $50. You want to be selective in owning these. He has lightened up.

It is leveraged to global consumer spending. They continue to boost margins and cut spending. The multiple is very rich as you are paying 20 times for 8 percent growth in earnings. (Analysts’ price target is $57.00)

A consumer staple name that is doing the right thing by downplaying their bread and butter business. They are getting more into sports drinks to diversify. It should trade at a premium. You should buy when it trades down. He has PEP-T right now.

Coke differs from the broader staples sector. It’s strong between March and June, so look for it in the second quarter. Seeing a rollover, and a short-term double top. Suggests more downside weakness. Heading for breaking support at $44 and $41. Stay away.

It's built a nice base. It's so boring, yes, but whenever it reaches these levels in the low-40s, it bounces up. Limited downside, but likely upside. (Analysts' price target: $49.80)

Great, solid company, but not going anywhere. The trend is moving away from soft drinks. They've already penetrated the world and face newer soft drinks coming up. Probably see a small dividend increase. Hold it and get your dividend to sleep at night, but there's not enough growth here. Dividend yield of 3.6%.

Prefers this stock to Pepsi (PEP-Q). Has also diversified away from soft drinks. Has divested its bottling business. It collects royalties from that, along with cash from the sale. If he had to pick between them, he would buy Coke.

One of the great companies of the world according to Warren Buffet. Volumes are probably going to start to decline as people drift away from carbonated beverages. They still have tremendous profitability in the third world. At 25X earnings, it is discounting a lot of that, and the stock will do well the next time the market falls. Dividend yield of 3.3%.

If he owned this, he would switch to Pepsi (PEP-N). There is more optionality with Pepsi. Coca-Cola has re-franchised their bottling agreements. The margins are relatively high. Pepsi is not as operationally efficient, which means that it is probably a better acquisition target.

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.

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.

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.
