The Coca-Cola Company Is Priced For Near Double Digit Returns


I love the consumer staples companies and want to have a bulk of my portfolio tied to their success. Consumer staples tend to have less fluctuation in their operations compared to other sectors simply because their provide consumable items that consumers love. However, the market realizes this too and typically the shares of the excellent companies trade at premiums precisely for the stability and excellence of their operations.

The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) was one of the first companies I ever purchased for my dividend growth investing portfolio. While I've received better returns from other positions there's few companies that I can say without a doubt will raise their dividend each and every year which The Coca-Cola Company has done for 53 straight years.

Something that's so simple and economical to run that even blundering management can't mess up the operational excellence that is The Coca-Cola Company.

    1. BDI,

      I'm not that concerned with the new "heath conscious consumer" because I'm definitely in show me mode in regards to that. Some people might stop drinking CSDs but I don't expect the majority of middle class America to stop. Plus I think it's 14 or 15 of their 20 $1B revenue brands that aren't CSDs.

      Thanks for stopping by!
