Broyhill Asset Management made the following comment about Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:KOF) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

"Shares of Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:KOF) climbed 28% in 2022 as the Coca Cola bottler’s operations continued to benefit from the re-opening of LatAm economies and the continued shift to higher margin, on-premise sales. Curiously, despite the stock’s strong performance and steady increases in consensus earnings estimates which are more than 30% higher since we established the position, analysts appear to have soured on the name. Only seven of the seventeen analysts that cover the stock currently rate it a buy down from about 75% a couple of years ago. While this depressed sentiment gives us confidence that the market has yet to come around to our more positive view on the business, we did trim the position during the year to capitalize on the even greater discount we identified at parent company, Fomento Economico Mexicano."
