    ä 02/12/13 11:42 am ET ... S&P MAINTAINS
    STRONG BUY RECOMMENDATION ON SHARES
    OF THE COCA-COLA COMPANY (KO
    37.60*****):We cut our '13 EPS estimate $0.02
    to $2.19 on lower revenue, and on revised forward
    multiple analysis, trim our target price by
    $1 to $43. Adjusted Q4 EPS of $0.45, vs. $0.39,
    beat our projection by $0.01 on lower costs than
    our forecast. Global volume rose 3% but was
    weighed by Europe, which fell 5%. Still, volume
    jumped 9%, significantly ahead of sparkling
    growth of 1%. While we were disappointed by
    performance in Europe and China, we expect
    improvement throughout 2013 and see strong
    growth in other regions.We see $3.0B-$3.5B
    buyback for '13 and 2.6% yield supporting
    shares. /E. Kwon, CFA

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
