12:43 EDTGMCR, KO, PEPEarnings 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%.

06:37 EDTPEPActivist investor to pressure for new Pepsi CEO in summer, NY Post says
Nelson Peltz plans to pressure PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi this summer to develop a plan of succession, reports the New York Post. Peltz, who owns 1.2% of PepsiCo through his Trian Partners, recently had his adviser William Johnson appointed to the company's board. Johnson begins serving on the board in March and will push for quick leadership change, potentially allowing Peltz to name a CEO more willing to spin off Pepsi's Frito-Lay into a separate company.
