    Daniel Och started Och-Ziff Capital Management almost twenty years ago, and it has become one of the largest institutional managers of alternative assets since then. A subsidiary of the firm is OZ Management, a fund that must comply with the SEC’s quarterly requirements of position disclosures. We take keen interest in these holdings, as we have found that the most popular small-cap stocks amongst hedge fund managers can handily more »

    By Anh HOANG - March 7, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CCE, PEP

    Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) has been the favorite stock of legendary investor Warren Buffett. Indeed, it was listed as one of his “Big Four” investments in his recent 2012 letter to shareholders. Its business is producing and selling concentrates to bottlers around the world. The bottlers then mix the concentrate with sweetener and water to make the final product that is distributed to retail stores, food service distributors and restaurants. As more »

  • A Global Food & Beverage Giant That Is Still Fizzling After Nearly 50 Years in Business

    By Ryan Guenette - February 25, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CCE, DPS, MNST, PEP

    A SWOT analysis is a look at a company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and is a tremendous way to gain a detailed and thorough perspective on a company and its future. As 2013 begins, I would like to focus on global food and beverage company nearing the half century mark: PepsiCo Incorporated (NYSE: PEP).

    By Ryan Guenette - February 22, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CCE, KOF, DPS, PEP

    A SWOT analysis is a look at a company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and is a tremendous way to gain a detailed and thorough perspective on a company and its future.  As 2013 begins, I would like to pinpoint on a leading marketer, producer, and distributer of nonalcoholic beverages in Western Europe, Coca-Cola Enterprises (NYSE: CCE).

  • A Cool Option for This Summer

    By Himanshu Poddar - February 21, 2013 | Tickers: CCE, DPS, PEP

    It seems quite a few companies are gunning for a turnaround. Most of the key players in the beverage industry seem to be restructuring their businesses. Some time back, I had discussed how PepsiCo’s (NYSE: PEP) restructuring plans would benefit the company going forward. However, there is a time lag between the money spent on the turnaround plan and reaping the benefits thereof. In case of PepsiCo, the effects more »

  • Who Let the Fizz out of my SODA?

    By Jason Hall - February 21, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CCE, KRFT, PEP, SODA

    Since earnings were announced on Feb. 20, SodaStream (NASDAQ: SODA) shares are down 9% as of this writing.  All indications are that it's just another case of Mister Market overreacting.  But as a long-term investor, it's worth taking the time to evaluate the company and make sure there isn't something we are missing.  Let's face it:  Just because the market is acting irrationally, that doesn't more »

  • Soothing Drinks for Long Term Investors

    By Gaurav Jain - February 20, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CCE, PEP

    I was having lunch at a pizza joint, when a family sitting across from me got into an argument. The kids wanted to have soft drinks, which their mother disapproved of. Their argument had many layers to it: whether to have it or not, the brand, the company, etc. Being an investor, I wandered off to a completely different plane. My concerns lay with the giants of the soft drink more »

  • Goldman Sachs: 2013 Buy-Rated Stocks with Share Repurchase, Yield

    By John Macris - January 14, 2013 | Tickers: CCE, CSX, LOW, NSC, WYN

    While a handful of analysts expect the S&P 500 index to breach the record 1,565.15 close reached on October 9, 2007, I believe the market performance in 2013 could be uneven given the need for continued legislative action in Washington. On Thursday, January 10, the S&P reached a five-year closing high of 1472.12, which is only 6 percent lower than the above-mentioned record high.

    Billionaire Daniel Loeb founded his New York-based hedge fund Third Point Management in 1995 with just over $3 million. Since its inception, the fund has returned roughly 25% annually. Loeb graduated from Columbia University in 1983 and worked at Jefferies & Company and Citibank before starting Third Point.

  • Switch To Blue Chips For A While

    By Edgar Ambart - December 4, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CAT, KO, CCE | Editor's Choice

     The market has been trading sideways lately with DOW and S&P hovering near 13,000 and 1,400 respectively.  While some are worried about the "fiscal cliff" and not putting any more funds at risk, others are not selling in possible optimism from modest home price increases or improved corporate earnings.  In a recessionary environment where the major indices are weak, it is time to temporary find safe haven more »

  • Coca-Cola the Great

    By Alvin Gonzales - November 20, 2012 | Tickers: KO, CCE, DPS, PEP

    No other company has quietly dominated the world as much as The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO). Coca-Cola, which has been in business since 1886, is in the boring business of selling soft drinks. However, in the over 100 years that the company has been in existence, it has built up a globally recognizable brand that is unrivaled by any other company in the soft drink industry. Coca-Cola owns or licenses more »

  • Coca Cola: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats

    By William Bias - October 31, 2012 | Tickers: KO, CCE, PEP

    Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), a company best known for its flagship soda product, manufactures “liquid refreshment beverages” of multiple varieties. Overall the company sells its beverages either as syrups to be blended at Coca-Cola’s vast network of global bottlers or as a completed product in a container. Over the years Coca-Cola has performed well for long-time investors such as billionaire Warren Buffett; however, the past gives you 20/20 hindsight. It’s the future that should concern investors especially those who are considering an investment in Coca-Cola. I decided to evaluate this company from the angle of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.

  • Is This Soft Drink Giant a Good Stock to Buy?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - October 12, 2012 | Tickers: KO, CCE, DPS, MNST, PEP

    Warren Buffett really likes Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). Berkshire Hathaway has had a large position in the stock for decades, as Buffett identified it as his classic case of a value stock with a “moat” in the form of its strong brand name and trade-secret formula. Berkshire’s position of 200 million shares, which it has not changed in some time, was worth almost $16 billion at the end of June more »
