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 lagged the industry in the past month due to a bleak earnings and sales view for 2019. Notably, the company expects adverse currency rates to significantly hurt comparable revenues and operating income in the first quarter and 2019. Currency headwinds have persistently hurt the company’s results for the past few quarters, including fourth-quarter 2018. Further, emerging market volatility and soft CSD volumes continue to remain impediments. However, the company’s ongoing productivity efforts and disciplined growth strategies aided results in the fourth quarter, wherein earnings were in line while sales beat estimates marginally. Price/mix improvements due to core business strength also contributed to the solid results. Acceleration of sparkling soft drinks category through investment and innovation also bode well. Moreover, its transformative global re-franchising initiatives are expected to boost margins." (2/22/2019)
