12:43 EDTKO, PEP, GMCREarnings Preview: Coca-Cola significantly lagging S&P ahead of Q4 report
Coca-Cola (KO) is scheduled to report fourth quarter earnings before the market opens on Tuesday, February 18, with a conference call scheduled for 9:30 am ET. Coca-Cola, a member of the S&P 500 index, is a beverage company that owns or licenses and markets more than 500 nonalcoholic beverage brands. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 46c on revenue of $11.31B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 44c-47c on revenue of $11.17B-$11.51B. LAST QUARTER: Coca-Cola reported third quarter EPS of 53c against estimates for 53c, on revenue of $12.03B against estimates for $12.05B. The company also reported worldwide growth of 2% in the quarter. On its earnings conference call, Coca-Cola added that it saw fiscal year 2013 operating income in-line with year-to-date performance and that it saw Q4 income hurt 5%-6% by foreign exchange impacts. RESEARCH AND NEWS: On December 28, 2013, Barron's ran a feature which opined that Coca-Cola's stock could rise 20% or more in 2014 due to expected growth in both earnings and revenue, as well as a rising dividend return. On February 5, Coca-Cola and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) announced that the companies have signed a 10-year agreement to collaborate on the development and introduction of Coca-Cola's global brand portfolio for use in Green Mountain's forthcoming Keurig Cold at-home beverage system. As part of the deal, Coca-Cola agreed to buy a 10% stake in Green Mountain for $1.25B. The next day, Wells Fargo said it believed the deal with Green Mountain was very positive and should drive revenue and profit growth for Coca-Cola. The firm added that the deal could drive margin expansion for Coca-Cola over the long-term and it kept an Outperform rating on the stock. COMPETITORS: Coca-Cola rival PepsiCo (PEP) reported mixed Q4 results on February 13, reporting EPS of $1.05 against estimates of $1.01, and revenue of $20.12B against estimates of $20.16B. PepsiCo added that it saw fiscal year 2014 core EPS growth of 7%, mid single-digit organic revenue growth, and low-single-digit commodity inflation. PRICE ACTION: Over the last 12 months, Coca-Cola's stock is up 5%, lagging the S&P 500, which has risen over 20% in that time frame. Over the last three months, the stock is down 3.7%.

The call followed Wintergreen’s March 21 letter to the board of directors in which it characterized the proposed plan as an “excessive transfer of wealth” from Coca-Cola shareholders to the top five percent of the company’s management.
