What are analysts saying about The Coca-Cola Co stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Coca-Cola Co stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We are lowering our FY17-18e EPS following KO's mixed 4Q report. We believe KO's strategic initiatives are appropriate and FY17-18 Street EPS est. should now be more appropriate to reflect structural headwinds. Yet, KO's topline is likely to remain constrained given the difficult macro, particularly in Lat Am, and the stock's valuation remains full at ~23x EV/ULFCF (>10% premium to 20.5x staples avg.), keeping us on the sidelines. PT to $42." (2/10/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Coca-Cola’s increased marketing investments are driving volume growth in stable markets like North America. Moreover, the company is on track to deliver over $600 million in productivity in 2016.  Also, Coca-Cola’s new revenue platforms should drive growth over the long term. However, the top line needs to show sustained improvement. Though markets like North America, Japan and Western Europe remain strong, continued weakness in a number of emerging markets like Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela is denting sales. Furthermore, weak sparkling beverage volumes as well as currency and structural headwinds pose threats. Meanwhile, the company has been struggling in recent years owing to the global macro-economic headwinds and shifting consumer preferences. Shares have also underperformed the broader market in the last 6-month period." (1/9/2017)
