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’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past month. We note that the company’s North America Segment is witnessing weak operating margin due to accounting change, structural headwinds and other cost pressures, which are likely to persist throughout 2018. Also, the segment’s price/mix results were unfavorably impacted by the timing of new product launches, incremental outbound freight costs and shift of the Easter holiday in the last reported quarter. Further, its North American sparkling beverage business has been delivering sluggish results due to CSD category headwinds. Nevertheless, the company’s strategic efforts in making its portfolio as a total beverage company with improved marketing and innovation, focus on driving revenues by improved price/mix and digital focus remain encouraging. Moreover, Coca-Cola’s transformative global re-franchising initiatives are expected to boost margins." (6/26/2018)
  • 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)
