This is trading right on his model price of $40.15. It is very rare to get this stock at his model price. He sees large cap value stocks doing very, very well over the next 3-5 years.

Would take a significant pullback for him to be interested in it. Soft drinks are not a growth area. But they are executing, and a pristine, well known brand.

Have been focused on carbonated soft drinks but had been able to adapt to the times and bring on more products. You can’t argue with their execution and their brand value. However, it is not a cheap stock. Probably fairly valued and he wouldn’t be rushing in. Would wait for a setback and try to get it 10%-15% lower.

Great company to hold for the long-term. Valuation is not so attractive. Prefers Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS-N), the 3rd biggest soft drink maker and he is excited about their new line of soft drinks and their introduction into emerging markets. Expects that at some point in time, Coca-Cola or PepsiCo (PEP-N) will acquire this company.

Trading at about 17-18 times earnings. It is growing but at best, high single digits. Its multiple is outsized to its fundamentals. Soft drink business has really not been doing well.

When you own this one, it is a little bit boring, a low beta stock at 0.7 versus others. You are going to get a long-term growth rate of about 7%-8%. Dividend yield of 2.7% and he expects this to grow by about 7%-8% per year for the next 3 years.

PE in the high teens. Consistently make money and have been consistently growing. As long as the business continues to do what it has been doing, that multiple will be there and the stock price will go up as much as they grow earnings. The risk to this is that if anything ever does happen to the business, the threat on the downside is that you have the valuation pulling off. Also, there isn’t really much upside if you are looking for capital gain.

Doesn’t find the valuation that attractive. Growth is slowing down a little bit. Haven’t added the product categories at the same rate that Pepsi (PEP-N) has. You won’t lose money on it but he doesn’t see big upside. Earnings growth has clearly slowed down.

Stable company, good grower over the long term. If we have a shock to the markets in 2013 with the fiscal cliff, that would be a better time to put money to work. Buy it closer to the 52 week low.

Great franchise and a wonderful brand. Trades at about 17X earnings so a little bit rich for a beverage company. Soft drink side of the industry, all sodas, has really struggled and they have been making their money on other beverages. Prefers Pepsi-Cola (PEP-N) because of their salty snack business which has a huge franchise in Frito-Lay. So he is more comfortable with the safety of Pepsi.

Feels there is more upside in the beer space, such as Carlsberg (CARL-OMX). If you are selecting between Coca-Cola and Pepsi (PEP-N), Coca-Cola is the longer-term performer with a good track record, good dividend in good balance sheet. Pepsi is going to offer you much more upside.

One of the world’s most valuable brands. These types of companies have value when their brands are so valuable. Consumer staple, so a defensive stock. Like that it pulled back to its 200 day moving average indicating it was oversold. 2.7% dividend, which is going to grow at 7%-8% per year on average. Low beta stock.
