  • Coca-Cola Streamlines Its Structure-WSJ 0 comments
    Jul 30, 2012 4:12 PM | about stocks: PEP, KO

    Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) announced on Monday that it is organizing its operations around three divisions starting January 1st. The 3 divisions are Coca-Cola Americas, Coca-Cola Eurasia and Africa, and the Bottling Investment Group. I believe this is a very smart decision for Coca-Cola to avoid complexity and to attempt to minimize SG&A expenses. I believe that Pepsi (NYSE:PEP) would also benefit from a more simplistic operating structure and honestly I wouldn't be surprised to see them mimic Coke's move, with the exception that Pepsi has much larger food and snacks operations.

    Disclosure: I am long PEP.
