Actions of Coca Cola outperformed the Zacks soft drink industry over the past year (+ 5.2% vs. + 2.9%). Zacks analyst believes that Coca-Cola has benefited from the ongoing recovery in the markets which has also led to the reopening of the out-of-home chain.
Coca-Cola continued its strong trend of profit surprise in the third quarter of 2021, marking its eighth consecutive quarter of profit beating and its third consecutive beating of sales. KO’s strategic transformation as well as the recovery in all markets supported the gains during the quarter. Buoyed by the dynamics of its business, it raised its vision for 2021.
