12:43 EDTPEP, GMCR, KOEarnings 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%.

07:34 EDTKOCoca-Cola: Change in exchange rates to have unfavorable impact on op. income
The company says "Based on recent changes to the Venezuelan currency exchange rate mechanisms, we changed the exchange rate we used to remeasure our Venezuelan subsidiary’s financial statements into U.S. dollars... Based on our current projections, we expect this change in exchange rates to have an unfavorable currency impact on our operating income for the remainder of 2014. Additionally, the Venezuelan government issued a new law on fair pricing establishing the maximum profit a business can earn in Venezuela. We are currently evaluating the impact the new law may have on our 2014 operating results. The bottling transactions completed in 2013 are anticipated to have an unfavorable 1% structural impact on both our full-year 2014 net revenues and operating income, with the full impact occurring in the first half of the year. Currency exchange rates are expected to have an unfavorable impact on our reported results in 2014. Based on current spot rates, our existing hedge positions, and the cycling of our prior year rates, we estimate currency will be an approximate 7% headwind on our full-year operating income, and an approximate 7% headwind on our second quarter operating income. This outlook reflects the negative impact of the Venezuela devaluation, partially offset by slight improvements in other currencies as compared to the outlook we provided at the time of our year-end 2013 earnings release."
