What are Wall Street analysts saying about The Coca-Cola stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Coca-Cola stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "KO announced it will acquire Costa, providing a platform in global coffee." (8/31/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Coca-Cola surpassed the industry in the past month driven by a solid earnings trend with beat recorded in the last five quarters. The company gains from the effective execution of strategies to evolve as a consumer-centric, total beverage company. Further, the acceleration of its sparkling soft drinks category through investment and innovation bodes well. Though Coca-Cola reported top and bottom line beat in second-quarter 2018, reported revenues and operating margins were hurt by new accounting standards and negative currency. Going forward, the company expects unfavorable currency to hurt both revenues and operating margin in the second half. Further, the company anticipates the Trump administration’s recent tariffs on aluminum to increase the cost of producing soda cans. This along with escalating freight costs and higher in other input costs is likely to result in increased prices for sodas, which should hurt profitability." (8/7/2018)
