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

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.

From Murray Stahl (Trades, Portfolio)’s Horizon Kinetics 4Q 2014 Commentary.

David Winters Comments on Coca-Cola Company - Mar 12, 2014

The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) ("Coca-Cola") and Nestlé are examples of the world's most valuable and enduring companies. Unlike some speculative companies whose stock prices soared last year, these two were largely ignored. With total returns for 2013 of 17% and 13% respectively (including dividends), Coca-Cola and Nestlé fell into the overlooked category. Rather than get caught up in the speculative frenzy which consumed much of the market, we used the relative weakness in Coca-Cola and Nestlé as an opportunity to add to the Fund's positions.

In 2013, Coca-Cola was impacted by a new 'soda tax' in Mexico. While soda taxes make for attention grabbing headlines, we believe the underlying reality of Coca-Cola's business is as strong as ever. Coca-Cola's portfolio of drinks is extremely diverse in both brands and geography. In fact, of the 16 Coca-Cola brands that have over $1 billion in annual sales, only three (Coke, Sprite, and Fanta) are sugar-sweetened soft drinks. The majority of their $1 billion brands are comprised of sugar-free soft drinks, juices, teas, and waters. Beyond that, a sugar tax has been implemented in only one country, Mexico, and proposed implementation of such a tax in other countries has been met with firm resistance. While Mexico is a significant market for Coca-Cola, we believe the ultimate impact to the company's bottom line will be muted as consumers there switch to sugar-free versions of soft drinks and other healthier Coca-Cola offerings.

Coca-Cola's business is also affected by the volatility in emerging markets as it continues to grow its footprint globally and create shareholder value by streamlining its bottling operations in the United States and elsewhere around the world. The company has been a voracious buyer of its own stock and is in the midst of a share repurchase program totaling 500 million shares worth approximately $20 billion. We are happy to be buying shares alongside the company for a price which we believe will prove to be a bargain in the long-run.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Coca-Cola - Jan 30, 2014

Coca-Cola (KO)'s shares appreciated solidly during the quarter after being left out of much of the rally earlier in the year. Microsoft Corp's shares were up solidly during the quarter on stronger than expected earnings and anticipation of positive changes at the company after a new Chief Executive Officer is hired.

Top Ranked Articles about Coca-Cola Co

The Next Target 3G And Warren Buffet Could Team Up For
PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP) is best known as the competitor to Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO). The two giants effectively have the market for black gold (the other black gold) split between them. In addition Pepsi manufactures and sells salty and sweet snacks. Brands include: Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Gatorade, Tropicana, Lay's, Doritos, and Quaker. The food unit makes up 50% of revenue and the company derives approximately 50% from the U.S. Pepsi’s salty snacks have a large market share which is providing the company with a strong competitive advantage through scale. Back in the 60’s in the so-called conglomerate era, you may remember Teledyne, Pepsi merged with Frito-Lay. The combination has survived changing preferences among investors so far. Today, conglomerates are not popular. Buffett refers to the practice as empire building and diworsification, while academic theory also takes a dim view of the practice. Activists work 24/7 to break up stalwarts left and right and sometimes the initiative even comes from within. Read more...
Yacktman Focused Fund Sells More Than Buys in Second Quarter
The Yacktman Focused Fund (Trades, Portfolio) pursues growth companies at low prices when it looks for investment targets. It’s a strategy that has worked pretty well, producing returns of 10.67% in 2014, 27.01% in 2013 and 10.57% in 2012. But the Fund was focused on selling stock in the second quarter. Read more...
Yacktman Fund Reduces Stakes in Six of Its Most Valuable Holdings
Donald Yacktman (Trades, Portfolio)’s Yacktman Fund (Trades, Portfolio) looks for growth companies at a low price when investing, an approach that produced an 11.33% return last year. In the second quarter of 2015, however, the Fund didn’t do any buying; instead, it reduced many of its holdings, including six of its 10 most valuable stakes. Read more...
David Winters Sells Two-Thirds of Stake in Coca-Cola
Wintergreen Fund (Trades, Portfolio) manager David Winters (Trades, Portfolio) is a deep value investor. Like many investors, Wintergreen struggled in 2014 – not as much as some, though, with a -1.68% return for the year – but it returned nearly 17% in 2013. Winters doesn’t make many transactions in a given quarter – his nine transactions in the first quarter of 2015 were the most he has made since the fourth quarter of 2013 – but they tend to be noteworthy.

PepsiCo: A Reliable Stalwart Stock According to Peter Lynch Checklist

How Did Coca-Cola Score on the Stalwarts Checklist?
Last week, I used the Phil Fisher checklist to determine whether or not Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was a good company to invest in. The company scored a 3.6 out of 5. The checklist feature is a way to help you dig deeper than a company’s P/E, PEG, P/B ratios and dividend yield (or as I like to call them, the “Fantastic Four”) to help decide whether or not a certain stock is a good investment. And yes, I am aware that there are other factors that come into the equation when investing. Read more...
