GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Coca-Cola Co

Yacktman Funds Comments on Coca-Cola - May 04, 2016

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) was a solid performer in the quarter, along with the general strength in the consumer staples sector. Given the market turmoil and global uncertainty, staples were favored due to the quality and consistency of their businesses. We think Coca-Cola could benefit from the recent Dollar weakness and achieve solid margin expansion as the company focuses on cutting costs.

Murray Stahl’s Horizon Kinetics Comments on Coca-Cola - Mar 27, 2015

There is no longer a central mechanism for investors to vote with their feet on an individual stock. Taking Coca-Cola (KO), as an example, during the decade of the 1970s, the company generated about 13% annualized earnings growth, some years approaching 20%. For the first 5 years of the ‘70s, the P/E ratio ranged between about 30x and 40x earnings. Few would argue that it wasn’t overvalued. And, as the reversion to the mean principle would dictate, despite a decade of earnings growth that strong, the P/E contracted to 13.6x by 1978 and, over the course of an entire decade, the shares declined by over 45%.

Today, Coca-Cola trades at a P/E of 21x, not 30x or 40x. On the other hand, it is now a mature company: its products are everywhere, there is a limit to how much more Coca-Cola per-capita the world’s residents will drink, even if they don’t develop a preference to less sugary drinks. In fact, Coca-Cola has lost revenue in the last two years. With that understanding, at 21x earnings, is Coca-Cola any less overvalued than it was in 1973? It might be more overvalued. This is the type of unhealthy growth (slowing/declining) and valuation (high/rising) pairing that is more and more representative of the major stock indexes. That they have risen of late is no more a sign that one should be invested that way than that one should have been invested in the notorious Nifty Fifty during the early 1970s or in the favored stocks during the 1999 Internet Bubble.

A Few Remarks on Coca-Cola From Buffett Warren Buffett explains some key aspects of Coca-Cola's moat
One of the best investing cases of all time is definitely the Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) purchase made by Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio). While the company was having some identity issues, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B) started purchasing significant amounts of the company, an investment they still hold until this day. Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) has dedicated full speeches to analyzing the competitive forces behind Coca-Cola's success, and during a lecture at the business school at the University of Florida, Buffett described the company's moat in his approachable manner. Since there is a great deal of wisdom in Buffett's remarks, I will try to comment on each paragraph separately. Read more...

Some Thoughts on the Downside A few thoughts on downside analysis
It’s almost a cliché to tout the so-often quoted wisdom of “if you take care of the downside, the upside will take care of itself.” But in the reality of the investing world, downside is still significantly and inappropriately weighted in most investors’ investment processes. Giving less thought and attention to the downside than it deserves means botched margin of safety calculations. Over the years, I’ve gravitated toward putting more time on worst-case analysis in the investment process. I’d like to share a few thoughts on the subject. Read more...
