The King of Pop: Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola is worldwide known as one of the most famous non-alcoholic beverages. Coca-Cola products have been almost everyone’s favorite for the past 125 years.

Coca-Cola is doing anything that it thinks is right and makes it look more attractive to investors. As a matter of fact, the company’s performance has been proven by its predictable earnings growth and improving stock price over the years – stock price has increased 15.7 percent in 13 months and 96 percent in three years (Seeking Alpha, May 2012). Coca-Cola has a lot to look forward to in terms of its...
