    To clarify I don’t mean the fundamental process of bottling cola but the way the company is set up. I’m fairly new to investing and trying to do some DD as Coca Cola seems undervalued to me, but it looks like they have several different companies and tickers and I’m not sure which one is the main parent company whose results I should be looking at. Looking on Yahoo finance they have the tickets $KO (Which I assume is the parent?), $CCH.L, $COKE and $CCEP (Which I assume is their European arm?). Which company should I be looking at if I want to see how the overall global business is performing?

  28. Is it worth it to invest in multiple shares of Coca Cola for Dividends? (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am a new investor and while I am learning more every day and looking into stuff more and more, Coca Cola has caught my eye. Basically, coca cola (I'll just say KO for now on) was shown to have a div/yield of around 3. On top of that, KO isn't going anywhere any time soon, and even though it's a gigantic thing, it's only at around 54 dollars per share. I'm thinking of buying a bit more shares of this than I normally would, around 19-20 or so, so I can get a decent amount of dividends and put those back into investing. Plus they pay out dividends very soon about next month, and quarterly at that. I have tried to play it as intelligently as I could, and if something may seem dumb, to me it made logical sense. I've mostly been investing in ETF's, with only Visa being my one blue collar company. I was wondering if it would be wise to then buy a few of KO as my next blue collar company, and buy more for the dividends aspect too. I do not want to invest in random stuff like the rip-toe currency stuff (can't say it because word filters are stupid), and I just want to be a long term investor. So again, as intelligently as I could think My comparison, my portfolio right now is: 2.51 shares of VOO (Vanguard S&P 500 ETF) 3.02 shares of V (Visa) 1.05 Shares of SPY (SPDR S&P 500 ETF) 2.53 shares of VTV (Vanguard Value ETF) (I plan on buying a few shares of KO but here's where I come to ask if it's worth it to buy more, around 19-20 or just buy a few like I did with the others) Thanks for the help and if you read this far, thanks for reading this far too. I've also noticed IRM for similar reasons, but I don't know much about IRM compared to Coca Cola.   submitted by   /u/FlamingOrange [link]   [comments]

  29. The market did not drop because of Delta variant. Delta has been in the news for months. (19/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This is a general post about event being fit onto market action after the fact. It is so silly. Why didn't anyone say "Market up the last 5 days due to Delta variant" ? I could find 20 events, both positive and negative, that could be used to explain why the market went up or down. If the market was up today, no one would talk about delta, they'd talk about some peace treaty somewhere. Heat wave! Climate change! Market goes down. Ooops, when that was the news, the market went up. Condo collapse! Market goes up. Europe flooding! Market goes down. Nope, it went up. Delta variant has been in the news for months, and NOW the market goes down because of Delta? Not. Ignore all news. The market dropped because there were more sellers than buyers. The scapegoat just happens to be some arbitrary event.   submitted by   /u/CortexExport [link]   [comments]

  38. Coca-Cola (KO) expects recovery to be asynchronous through the year (19/04/2021 - AlphaStreet)
    Shares of The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) have gained 16% over the past 12 months. Shares stayed in green territory until market close on Monday after the company reported better-than-expected earnings results for the first quarter of 2021. Looking ahead, the soft drinks giant expects a full recovery to remain asynchronous around the world. Quarterly performance Net revenues grew 5% to $9 billion while organic revenues grew 6%, driven by higher concentrate sales. GAAP EPS fell 19% to $0.52 while adjusted EPS grew 8% to $0.55. Both the top and bottom lines surpassed expectations. Trends During the quarter, Coca-Cola benefited from strength in at-home channels but the pandemic-related weakness in the away-from-home channels continued to weigh on results. The company lost value share in total non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages due to negative channel mix caused by pressure in away-from-home channels. Volume trends witnessed a steady improvement through each month of the quarter helped by recovery in markets where the pandemic-related restrictions eased a bit. A full recovery remains asynchronous throughout the world. In March, volumes were back to pre-pandemic levels even though the away-from-home channel stayed pressured. The company expects to see more markets return to normal later this year. In Q1, Coca-Cola witnessed strong growth in developing and emerging markets such as China and India but this was offset by pressure in developed markets such as the US and Europe. Sparkling soft drinks grew 4% helped by growth in China, India and Latin America. China saw traffic and volume back to pre-pandemic levels while in India and Southwest Asia, the company saw strong growth helped by marketing and distribution expansion with 250,000 new outlets and 45% more new coolers. Coca-Cola is also betting big on coffee this year. The company is expanding its ready-to-drink coffee in China and is working on complementing its Georgia coffee brand in Japan. Outlook For the full year of 2021, Coca-Cola expects organic revenue to grow in the high single digits and comparable EPS to grow in the high single digits to low double digits.
