Very disappointed in the executives running the company. If I don't see any improvement in PPS by next earnings report, I'm moving my money to other blue chips with better potential.
You not understanding my position. I don't own any KO. I own a lot of Kraft: Result of this deal would benefit Kraft-don't know or care what happens to KO stock price. Also this is Cramer's idea-not mine, so take up your potential issues with him.
NEW YORK, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Fund manager David Winters has sold his shares in Berkshire Hathaway Inc, citing Chairman Warren Buffett's inaction on Coca-Cola Co's equity plan.
Winters previously owned 1.2 million shares of Berkshire, according to a May filing. A quarterly filing dated Aug. 14 said his firm Wintergreen Advisers no longer owns shares of the company.
i think if that's how you feel, invest elsewhere... I invest in Coca Cola because the dividend is paid on time and grows consistently. The company is known globally and is the largest beverage company ever. It also has the potential to grow and expand. That's just me...
Every company has it's star player. With Apple, it was Steve Jobs and with KO it was Roberto C. Goizueta. These managers deserve every dime they make, but present management needs to do more than simply live off the legacy of Roberto and awards themselves disproportionately for poor performance.
DEQI targets actual money players with its newly acquired poker game, Actua Poker. The new title boosts the company’s growth potential as management moves to deliver on its business plan
For those of you who take exception to my post. If you re-read my post, I was asking a question. Was it the question you did not like or do you simply demand cheerleaders on this board. Try to articulate an opposing point of view, it may make you think for change. Lol:
I more or less agree. Management should never of let Pepsi get so far ahead. KO still has potential to grow, the company just isn't flexing its muscle like it should.
LIke I said ............
Big deal for Monster ....minor event for KO shareholders
You posted on the Coke message board. Maybe you should have posted over
at the Monster message board address...?
Why share your 2 cents here at Coke, about a fantasy idea ....??
Good for you but pointless for Coke .......
Old entrenched management delivers old entrenched negative growth results .....but the mgmt
gets great pay raises for "hanging out" here.
What's not to like if you live in Atlanta .....?
With its brand recognition and its global distribution, Coke could be the biggest drink/food brand
in the entire world....but instead we buy bottlers in North America .......and litigation riddled power
drink brands that are showing their own negative revenue growth rates.
Kent, his Board of Directors and Buffett just don't give a damn about the rest of the shareholders.
This stock seems to be living off the grace of its history and has not done much in years. Yes, it is wonderful to have someone like Buffett be your advocate, but old Warren should demand better performance out of this company. The dividend is not fantastic and this market space is starting to develop a reputation much like the fast food industry. So please tell me what I am missing by not purchasing KO.
I never said otherwise so I don't understand the relevance of your reply. Even Monster saw trading on insider info as the options purchases in prior days exploded. So my posts is about that not what your reply revolved around.
Just putting my 2 cents in, Your right though LNCE is too small for KO it would require a massive ramp up which means new plants and personal. KO would want something turnkey. LNCE has been a good trading stock for me.
Didn't Coke just buy its US bottler(s) in the past few years....?
This "bottling of the magic potion" is not providing growth for global
carbonated firms (PEP & KO)
I agree that KO must think distribution leverage and new MAJOR brand
acquisitions to deliver growth.
Coke needs to buy large brands in India, China & SE Asian Islands
and regions in Africa where the populations are exploding.......
...if Coke can package its new brands as the things the USA & EU want
the emerging market populations will buy them hand over fist.....!!!.
No way.......you must be long LNCE....'cause it doesn't work for Coke
just like Monster doesn't work for Coke either......
