KO: $49.99 Last, $215 bn Mkt Cap, -10% YTD,  P/E 24, 3Q Est. +$0.465 EPS, Rev $8.4bn

  • The global brand Coca-Cola is one of the most well-known across the world. The $215bn mkt cap & soft drinks company – a long-term strategic holding of Warren Buffet, Berkshire owns just under 10% – is expected to have revenues of $8.4bn for the quarter.
  • Similar to a number of companies that have already reported, the uptick in economic activity in 3Q likely helped Coke in North America & Europe, with the emerging markets likely being a mixed bag to negative skew.
  • With US 10yrs rates at 0.81% & even 30yr bond yielding 1.62%, this blue chip’s dividend of 3.38% that has been growing at just under 5% over the last 5yrs is notable. I.e. the div. on Coca-Cola is likely a lot safer than the c. 7-8% div. on energy etf XLE.
