Coca-Cola Earnings Preview

Coca-Cola Image

The Coca-Cola Company  (KO) 

Background: The Coca-Cola Company, a beverage company, engages in the manufacture, marketing, and sale of nonalcoholic beverages worldwide. The company primarily offers sparkling beverages and still beverages.

Wall Street and investors are planning on more of the same in the upcoming fourth-quarter earnings report. It's expected before the market opens on February 18, 2014 The consensus opinion is presently 46 cents a share, a very small amount of one cent (2.2%) over 45 cents during the corresponding period last year. Analysts are estimating as low as 44 cents per share, up to the most optimistic estimate of 47 cents per share.

Coca-Cola pays $1.12 annually in dividend payments. The yield based on a recent price is 2.9%.

The majority of analysts believe Coca-Cola continues to offer a buying opportunity. 14 of the 22 analysts covering the company give a buy recommendation. Some (7) are taking a more cautious approach, and rate it a hold. As of the last update I have, 1 analysts recommend selling some or all holdings. Investors haven't made progress this year. Shares in the company have fallen 2% from a year ago. The average analyst target price for Coca-Cola is $45.04.

Short sellers are next to impossible to find. Short interest is so low I only include it to demonstrate the smart money is not betting against this company. 1.1% of the float is short based on the last reported numbers.
