    The Post-Earnings Drop of Coca-Cola Stock Is a Buying Opportunity

    Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) stock dropped sharply yesterday after the consumer-staples giant reported fourth-quarter numbers that were largely in-line with expectations. But KO also issued cautious guidance for fiscal 2019 which seemed to incorporate slowing global economic trends and persistent foreign-exchange headwinds, causing KO stock to decline from $50 to $45.KO stock was trading right near its all-time highs heading into the Q4 print. But its results were pretty good, as its organic sales rose 5% and its operating profits rose 11%.In that context, the decline of Coca-Cola stock looks like a buying opportunity. Everything is still going well for KO. The company is continuing to pivot from a soda-focused brand to a multi-beverage brand that is much more relevant to today's health-conscious consumers. That transition is powering consistent, healthy revenue growth.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher Meanwhile, KO has exercised disciplined cost control, pushing its margins higher. The result of these trends is healthy, steady revenue and profit growth.This healthy, steady top-line and bottom-line growth will ultimately power Coca-Cola stock higher. KO stock was trading at a premium valuation heading into the print, supported by unreasonably high expectations. Now expectations are lower, and Coca-Cola stock is cheaper. Thus, now is the right time to buy KO stock. Q4 Numbers Were Good, But Not GreatCoca-Cola's Q4 numbers were good. But they weren't great or anything special. Instead, they were more of the same stable revenue and profit growth that this company has reported over the past several quarters and years.Thus, in the big picture, Coca-Cola's top-line growth trajectory has largely stabilized around 4%, excluding acquisitions. The problem was that, when KO stock was around $50, some investors were hoping that 5% and up sales growth was the new norm. That isn't the case. Fiscal 2018 was just an unusually good year. Next year (and likely for the foreseeable future), organic sales growth (i.e. excluding the impact of acquisitions) will be in the 3%-5% range.Meanwhile, excluding currency fluctuations, operating income rose 8% in the quarter, and 11% on a trailing-twelve-month basis. That is fairly consistent with what KO has reported over the past several quarters. This low double-digit percentage-operating-profit-growth-trajectory is projected to persist, too, as KO expects its operating profits to rise 10%-11% in 2019.Overall, KO's fourth-quarter numbers and its 2019 guidance underscore that Coca-Cola's growth outlook is stable, but largely below the company's 2018 results. That disappointed some investors who had bought KO stock last year. Coca-Cola's Long-Term Outlook Is HealthyIn the big picture, the long-term fundamentals of Coca-Cola remain healthy. All the post-earnings drop did was make Coca-Cola stock cheaper while showing that KO's fundamentals remain strong. Consequently, this dip of Coca-Cola stock is a buying opportunity.Coca-Cola has made a big shift over the past several years, transforming from a soda-focused brand with declining popularity and relevance to a multi-beverage brand with climbing popularity and relevance. As part of this transition, the company has added new iterations like Zero to the core Coca-Cola product lineup, while broadening the product portfolio to include a wide range of teas, coffees, sparkling drinks, and enhanced waters that resonate with today's health-conscious consumers.This pivot is working. It's driving consistent, steady mid-single-digit, organic sales growth. In tandem with management's cost control measures, the transformation is driving high-single digit percentage to low-double-digit-percentage operating-profit growth.None of the company's fundamentals has changed in the wake of its Q4 results. The company's organic revenues are expected to rise 4% in fiscal 2019, while its operating profits are expected to rise just over 10%.The only thing that has changed is the valuation of Coca-Cola stock. Heading into the print, KO stock was trading at nearly 23 times analysts' forward earnings estimate with a sub-3.2% dividend yield. Relative to historical standards, that's a big P/E multiple and a low yield for KO stock.Now, though, the valuation of Coca-Cola stock is much more "normal". Its forward multiple is back around 20, which is roughly in-line with its average valuation over the last five years. The dividend yield has risen to 3.4%, above the average yield of KO stock over the last five years. Meanwhile, KO is still poised to deliver mid-single-digit-organic sales growth and grow its operating profit by about 10%.As a result, the decline of Coca-Cola stock is a buying opportunity. KO's fundamentals remain largely unchanged, while KO stock just went from slightly overvalued to slightly undervalued. The Bottom Line on Coca-Cola StockIn the big picture, Coca-Cola has a found a winning strategy: Acquiring relevant, popular brands, and distributing them around the globe. As long as this strategy continues to power mid-single-digit organic sales growth and operating-profit growth of about 10%, KO stock should be bought on dips.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long KO.

In the face of global economic uncertainty and signs that U.S. consumers’ confidence is slipping, PepsiCo said core earnings would decline this year.

    Canopy Growth Stock Has Great Potential — Buy High And Sell Higher

    In 2017 we had the Bitcoin craze and last year Wall Street was high on the cannabis trade. Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), which is the largest Canadian company of its kind, took center stage when Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ) invested $4 billion in it. This further legitimized the pot potential after an increase in the legalization trend. Since then, companies like Coke (NYSE:KO) have also been in pursuit of the pot of gold -- pun intended.The bullish thesis on cannabis is very broad. This makes it easy to accept and difficult to short. This also makes for some lofty expectations. Companies like Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) and Cronos (NASDAQ:CRON) are perhaps two of the most expensive valuations I've seen. TLRY has a market caps of $7 billion on only $20 million of revenues, and CRON's is $3.9 billion on only revenues of $3 million.From that perspective, CGC stock is not that much cheaper -- except this one has a fortress balance sheet thanks to the STZ investment. What ever the potential opportunities they may see, they have the money to pursue them the proper way. Growth becomes attainable, and that is good reason to pay up for the stock now.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWall Street is doing just that this morning, as the stock is moving 5% on the heels of the conference calls. Management reported earnings last night, and so far the reaction then was muted even though the report was solid. I caution that the stock move so far is still well below what was expected so investors could still change their mind today. But even then, this is the short term and the thesis for CGC stock is for the long term. CGC Stock EarningsThe report was strong on most metrics. They delivered triple-digit growth on sales and deliverable. They sold 10,100 Kg in the third quarter and that is a whopping 360% increase from the prior quarter. This is a steep ramp, and most of it was for recreational use. So the legalization trend has a significant impact on how much product CGC stocks can deliver. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher Therein lies the cannabis mania. More headlines on those fronts will surely drive the demand and stock price up.The sky's the limit since it's new territory. This potential has attracted mainstream large-cap companies like STZ, but others like KO have been looking as well, so they have yet to scratch the surface. Doubters of the sector should be careful here. Shorting a broad bullish thesis could bring financial ruin to staunch bears.Since there are so many opinion of future income streams for cannabis companies like CGC, it's hard to shoot them all down down. It would be like fighting a multi-headed snake. When you think you beat one argument, the stocks rally on another angle or point of view.So where is the growth going to come from next? With the legalization trend being so young, there will be exponential growth, from the direct-to-consumer sales through retail and online. And as more regions amend their laws to accept it, cannabis will expand its current product lines but also add more of the same.Currently the edibles, drinkables and medicinal are three of the most popular topics of discussion, I bet there will be dozens more soon to add to the list. This will broaden the scope of potential corporate acquirers like STZ did.The bottom line is that Canopy Growth stock should have no limit for as long as the stock market is rising. The quest for new uses of cannabis and the efforts to expand what's already on hand is too strong to stifle in the short term. That is why the stock moves so violently on a daily basis. The fear of missing out is too great. So those who missed the run the first few times can jump into the stock on dips.Technically, CGC stock behaves well, filling the chart patterns. As active a chart as it has, the breakdown and breakout levels have so far been predictable. It is now 85% higher than it was on Christmas and it is trading inside a tight range. This builds up pent-up energy that will need to resolve itself. This usually happens in a breakout or breakdown from significant levels.In this case, If Canopy stock loses $41.60, it could retest the $35 zone. Conversely and if the bulls can break through $48 then $52, they can invite enough momentum buyers to mount a $12 rally from there. In fact, CGC may already be in a breakout pattern with a measured move to $60 per share.Normally I want to wait for the breakout line to happen before I chase stocks. In this case, I would make an exception and buy get long CGC early because it is a fast mover. But I would put a tight stop below $41.60. I could do this using options, but even if I buy the stock outright, I would consider selling covered calls to mitigate my risk. Long term, this stock could be a massive home run, we just cannot quantify it yet and that is exciting and totally worth the risk.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.
