    No, the good news in KO earnings is the 2% volume growth in emerging markets, which exceeds analyst forecasts. Volume in North America was flat, but growth in emerging markets is where growth lies for KO.

     

    Long KO.

    Well, the news aren't bad, but good news are different, I'd say. See JNJ today, that looks "good"

    exactly. JNJ beats KO on any short term or long-term chart you look at. Now that's a stock with real staying power that doesn't depend on one product category for its longevity.

     

    Heck even PEP has food to fall back on

    is the -4.7% YoY revenue decrease concerning? does it mean if they sold 20 drinks last year they only sold 19 drinks this year? it seems like a big deal.

    Think $KO will turn around and be strong on EM as that growth cycle kicks in: one day. See http://seekingalpha.co... for more.

    Good for Coke. Stick to what you are doing. If Coke was run by Facebook, Netflix, Cisco, or Google they'd be buying sacking shareholders wealth by buying just about anything at a huge premium and loss to profitability to try to show how "on top of the trend" they are and fully maximize the fact they know their company's stock is way over valued.

     

    The only difference is Coke's stock isn't over valued and its business isn't hype. It's slow, solid, and steady. Thus you would have profited fine just holding it.

    You'd be better in any other blue-chip quite frankly (long BA, JNJ, DIS)
