The Coca-Cola Company - KO

Posted on the 06 September 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
The Coca-Cola Company is a non-alcoholic beverage company. The Company owns or licenses and markets more than 500 non-alcoholic beverage brands, primarily sparkling beverages but also a variety of still beverages such as waters, enhanced waters, juices and juice drinks, ready-to-drink teas and coffees, and energy and sports drinks. It also owns and markets non-alcoholic sparkling beverage brands, including Diet Coke, Fanta and Sprite. KO currently pays a $0.47 quarterly dividend, which at today's stock price is a 2.71% yield. I like KO because of customer's brand loyalty. KO is a defensive stock, meaning that no matter how poor the economy is this stock remains consistant in price, earnings, and continues to dominate the beverage market.

Also, feel free to watch KO's presentation called "Our 2020 Vision in Action" Clearly Coca-Cola is thinking long term and global dominance. 2011 is their 125th anniversary year and they have paid a quarterly dividend since September 9th, 1987. Purchase some KO if you can. I highly suggest starting a Roth IRA using Sharebuilder.com. Invest as much as you can and purchase fractional shares. Always remember to purchase dividend aristocrats such as KO in your Roth IRA for tax savings. Have a great day!
