The Coca-Cola Company Message Board

    Coke Will Rebound

    Regardless of the day-to-day trends, Coca-Cola is one of the greatest generators of cash around. They are in every country in the world. Their new management team is extremely strong. Their new chairman was very, very highly thought of within the company in his prior roles. They have one of the strongest, deepest cultures around. Coca-Cola employees love the company - it is part of their blood.

    I would predict a very strong rebound from the doldrums that they've been in for a while - very soon. They will have some major surprises and successes up their sleeves, and they will hit big-time - returning the stock to it's glory days when it rose an average of 31% a year over a 15 year run. I've ridden the stock up - ridden it down - have held it all - and am prepared for it to take off again.

    • Stop licking other poster's ass, moron.

    • Great post!

    • QWAK,analchord, I make OBSERVATIONS, I make deDUCKshuns :) and I take POSITIONS backed by personal ACTION------COMUNICATION is not my strong suit (I failed COMUNION mostly because some NUN was wacking me on the HEAD I believe)but I do TRY to share the things I see and BELIEVE and do so in a timely mannor so that OTHERS may have suficient TIME to also take action and advantage of changes that could either profit them or save them from taking loses.

      That's just ME and who I am!

      the DUCK

    • REGARDING: Friedman noted that our problems are 2 fold: we import too much oil, and we import too much foreign capital. (we dont save enough)

      RESPONSE: There are more "folds" than two.
      Yes, we import and use too much oil.
      The government should stimulate a "Manhattan-like" project to accelerate discoveries of alternative fuels for automobiles. Conservation should be stimulated, e.g., increasing gasoline taxes with offsetting income tax credits.
      We import capital because it is there due to our massive trade deficits and the need is there due to our massive budget deficits.
      We are managing our finances very poorly.
      Mr. Friedman's suggestion that we are not "saving" enough is naive and reflects a shortcoming of his knowledge of economics.

      What would be the results to our economics IF the bottom 90% of taxpayers were, each, given a $2,000 tax credit, this year?

      What would be the results to our economics IF the bottom 90% of taxpayers tightened their belts and saved an additional $2,000 per year?

    • ur too funny!!

      thans for the laugh

    • You're living in the last century.

      Some responses to your *fantasy* about KO:

      Coca-Cola is one of the greatest generators of cash around.

      **although they cannot invest it to grow the business. Seem odd to you? I'll take my dividends, but....

      They are in every country in the world.

      **meaningless. All the larger multinationals can say that.

      Their new management team is extremely strong.

      **Based on WHAT EVIDENCE? Based on the fact that KO once had a strong bench? 7 years ago, maybe. Based on the lawsuit-forced Affirmative Action hiring? suuuuurre. Based on the 2% domestic growth? If that's what you call strong...

      Their new chairman was very, very highly thought of within the company in his prior roles.

      **Ivestor was highly thought of, as was Daft. HISTORY is NOT an indicator of future performance. Have you not learned that yet??

      They have one of the strongest, deepest cultures around. Coca-Cola employees love the company - it is part of their blood.

      **Brother, where the HELL have you been? Have you talked to anyone at KO recently? Jesus Christ, man! The "Bleed Red" culture died in 2000 when 20% of the ATL staff was fired at random. Employment terms at KO are now strictly CASH transactions. Pay for Play. Not a one of those idiots could get paid what they're making at KO anywhere else in Altanta. I have heard that from KO execs who are quietly on the job market. They're sure loyal - but to themselves, their EASY jobs, and their FAT paychecks!!!

      I would predict a very strong rebound from the doldrums that they've been in for a while - very soon. They will have some major surprises and successes up their sleeves, and they will hit big-time -

      **Based on what evidence??? C2 - failure. Coke with Lime - cannibal. Sprite Zero - So -f-ing what?
      This is not a religion - I need more than faith to believe that KO has some earth shattering, growth-driving innovations up their sleeves. Call me a Missourian if you must, but they're going to have to show me.

      I've ridden the stock up - ridden it down - have held it all - and am prepared for it to take off again.

      **inertia is ridiculous motivating factor isn't it? Do you think you've been smart with you're money, holding it all the way down (for 5 Years!)
      I'm sorry, know2all, but your post isn't much more than wishful thinking is it?

      If you think there really is something brewing, I'm interested to hear some facts, or evidence, or analysis. Please share -
