    By Delian Naydenov - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: KO, LWAY, FIZZ

    For the past few years, the large soda companies, such as Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), have been increasingly blamed for their role in the obesity problem in the U.S. However, they continue to do okay due to their international operations and financial power.

    By William Bias - November 12, 2012 | Tickers: KO, FIZZ, NSRGY, PEP

    In an earlier article I talked about the impact of healthy lifestyles on Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) sparkling beverages and how the bottled water brand, Dasani, gained market share. I also highlighted concerns about the lack of a competitive barrier surrounding those products:

    By Ryan Guenette - August 7, 2012 | Tickers: KO, DPS, MNST, FIZZ, PEP
