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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Coca-Cola started 2018 on a solid note, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts in the first quarter. Apart from a notably rise in soda volumes, it gained from its growing beverage portfolio and restructuring efforts. Organic sales grew 5%, led by price/mix growth of 1% and concentrate sales growth of 4%. Currency also had a 2% positive impact on revenues. Again, lower SG&A expenses (down 24.2%), higher gross margin (up 270 bps) and higher operating margin (up 600 bps) helped it come up with better earnings (up 8%). However, total sales decreased 16%, marking the 12th consecutive quarterly decline in revenues. Although the top line is yet to show sustained improvement, we are encouraged by its strategic efforts to make its portfolio as a total beverage company with improved marketing and innovation, focus on driving revenues by improved price/mix, digital focus, and productivity initiatives toward driving margins." (4/26/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "KO posted a solid 4Q in a tough env’t, incl. +6% org sales (vs. Street +4%) and a 1c EPS beat helped by non-operating items. New CEO James Quincey continues to reshape KO into a more consumer-centric/productivity-focused industry leader, while consensus ests. are finally trending higher after years of structural change and FX pressure. Lowering PT on group de-rating, though valuation becoming more attractive at 21.5x P/E given troubles elsewhere in staples." (2/20/2018)
