Coca-Cola Consolidated: Look At It With How Cheap It's Becoming

  • I've written about the bottler COKE a few times in the past because I found it to be an interesting, cheaper and "alternative" play to traditional soda companies.
  • A bottler like COKE is a superb choice under the right fundamentals because it has the same "basic product" as the beverage business, but with different dynamics and valuation.
  • As the company drops, I am now seriously starting to add COKE shares to my portfolio.

Great Call on COKE!!!!
Company EPS has gone from $20 to almost $50 from 2020 to 2022, mostly due to massive pricing and operating leverage on revenues, while volumes have been pretty flat. This rate of growth is clearly not sustainable. Question is what is risk there is reversion to lower pricing and margins. Is the 10-11% margin they are doing now a "normalized" margin?
Scott Black of Delphi said KO owns 35% and the Family owns 86% of Voting stock. This is one of his top picks too
Thanks for the article.
