The Coca-Cola Company Message Board

  • library_maven library_maven Sep 19, 1999 9:12 PM Flag

    Moody's confounds the skeptics

    Moodys Investors Service's ratings belie the
    amateur analysts on this board who are spreading nonsense
    concerning unmanageable debt levels, KO's demise, etc. Read
    this!


    http://biz.yahoo.com/rf/990916/s4.html

    Notice the second and third paragraphs:

    " The
    upgrades are based on CCE's increasing importance as the
    largest U.S. and international bottler in the Coca-Cola
    system and Moody's expectation that the already close
    strategic alignment between CCE and The Coca-Cola Company
    (KO) will continue to strengthen."

    "We also
    expect that the Coca-Cola system - which includes KO and
    its global bottling affiliates - will maintain an
    extraordinarily powerful brand franchise, increasingly efficient
    marketing and distribution capabilities, strong cash
    generation, and ample financial flexibility."

    Keep the
    faith, KO supporters! The bear noise will be subsiding
    as time goes on.

    • BENKEA: who the phuck do you think you are asking awkward questions on my board?. Piss off or I'll give you a thick lip

    • LOUIS FARRAKHAN: The road, you see, represents
      the black man. The chicken "crossed' the black man in
      order to trample him and keep him down.
      MARTIN
      LUTHER KING,JR.: I envision a world where all chickens
      will be free to cross roads without having thier
      motives called into question.
      MOSES: And God came down
      from the Heavens, and he said unto the chicken, "Thou
      shalt cross the road" And the chicken crossed the road,
      and there was much rejoicing.
      FOX MULDER: You saw
      it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more
      chickens have to cross the road before you believe
      it?
      RICHARD M. NIXON: The chicken did not cross the road. I
      repeat, the chicken did NOT cross the
      road.
      MACHIAVELLI: The point is that the chicken crossed the road.
      Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies
      whatever motive there was.
      JERRY SEINFELD: Why does
      anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever
      think to ask, what the heck was this chicken doing
      walking around all over the place, anyway?
      FREUD: The
      fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken
      crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual
      insecurity.
      BILL GATES: I have just released the new Chicken
      Office 2000, which will not only cross roads, but will
      lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance
      your checkbook.
      OLIVER STONE: The question is not
      "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Rather, it is,
      "Who was crossing the road at the same time, whom we
      overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken
      crossing?"
      DARWIN: Chickens, over great periods of time, have been
      naturally selected in such a way that they are now
      genetically disposed to cross roads.
      EINSTEIN: Whether the
      chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the
      chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
      BUDDHA:
      Asking this question denies your own chicken
      nature.
      RALPH WALDO EMERSON: The chicken did not cross the
      road..it transcended it.
      ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die. In
      the rain.
      COLONEL SANDERS: I missed
      one?
      CLINTON: (Shaking finger at us) I did NOT have sexual
      relations with that chicken.

    • Your question is valid and I wish I knew the
      answer. It leads me to another question someone
      asked:
      Question: Why did the chicken cross the
      road?

      KINDERGARTEN TEACHER: To get to the other side.
      PLATO: For
      the greater good.
      ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of
      chickens to cross roads.
      KARL MARX: It was a historical
      inevitability
      TIMOTHY LEARY: Because that's the only trip the
      establishment would let it take.
      SADDAM HUSSEIN: This was an
      unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in
      dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.
      RONALD REAGAN: I
      forget.
      CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK: To boldly go where no chicken has
      gone before.
      HIPPOCRATES: Because of an excess of
      phlegm in its pancreas.
      WALLSTREET CONSULTING FIRM:
      Deregulation of the chicken's side of the road was threatening
      its dominant market position. The chicken was faced
      with significant challenges to create and develop the
      competencies required for the newly competetive market.
      Wallstreet Consulting, in a partnering relationship with the
      client, helped the chicken by rethinking its physical
      distribution strategy and implementation processes. Using the
      Poultry Integration Model (PIM), Wallstreet Consulting
      helped the chicken use its skills, methodologies,
      knowledge, capital and experiences to align the chicken's
      people processes and technology in support of its
      overall strategy within a Program Management framework.
      Wallstreet Consulting convened a diverse cross-spectrum of
      road analysts and best chickens along with Wallstreet
      Consultants with deep skills in the transportation industry
      to engage in a two-day itenary of meetings in order
      to leverage thier personal knowledge capital, both
      tacit and explicit, and to enable them to synergize
      with each other in order to achieve the implicit goals
      of delivering and successfully architecting and
      implementing an enterprise-wide framework across the continuum
      of poultry cross-median processes. The meeting was
      held in a park-like setting, enabling and creating an
      impactful environment which was strategically based,
      industry-focused, and built upon a consistent, clear, and unified
      market message and aligned with the chicken's mission,
      vision and core values. This was conducive towards the
      creation of a total business integration solution.
      Wallstreet Consulting helped the chicken change to become
      more successful.

    • Ivester must be the worst CEO Coke ever had. Any
      idea when he will be fired. They also need to reduce
      their employee count from 28,600 to 25,000. Coke needs
      to fire 3,600 employees as soon as possible to save
      money. This would save the company about $300 Million a
      year. Do it now before Christmas rolls around.

    • do not, I repeat, do not sell your KO stock. I
      have re-evaluated my predictions and have a strong buy
      on KO at these levels. I studied several charts
      posted over the weekend here on the board and the bottom
      I believe has been reached. I repeat, BUY BUY BUY,
      with both hands if you can afford to. Good Luck to all
      with their investments I have recommended. I purchased
      10 shares this morning.

      I, Neal Boortz, am the real Neal deal. For my KO
      analyst friend, Ogdon, would today be a good day to
      liquidate my KO position? Did you buy yet? $500.00US won't
      buy many shares now will it? Thanks in advance. Good
      Luck with your purchase. Neal

    • Ogdon ... I've written you before about this.
      Apparently you didn't get the message. The posts you have
      been getting from "neal_boortz_wsb_radio" are NOT from
      Neal Boortz. They are from an imposter who has taken
      my identity for purposes of posting to this, and
      probably other forums. Cox Enterprises security is working
      with Yahoo on this situation in order to identify the
      person posting these messages. A civil action for
      appropriate damages will be brought against this person when
      that identity is ascertained. Possible criminal action
      will also be pursued. In the meantime, It would be
      appreciated if you would not engage this person in any
      further conversation.
      Thank you.

    • ogden with an e.

      The post right before
      that was not from Neal Boortz either.

      I guess
      I should enjoy all the attention that I receive.
      Some posters enjoy pretending to be me and yet no one
      wants to be them. It must be a self-esteem problem.


      There were probably the same posters that claimed KO
      was going higher when it was at $88 a share.

      Did Puksi become the official soft drink of transvestites? :)
