Keith Diaz
I think the simple message is sit less, move more, and move frequently. We found that the longer your movement break the better (that is, the lower your risk of death), and the more intense your movement break the better. Our minimum definition of a movement break was one minute.feedback

Carlos Salazar Lomelin - Fomento Económico Mexicano

Revenue growth was strong during the quarter, not just for our retail formats but across operations, and reflected a resilient consumer environment in Mexico in spite of rising inflation.feedback

Xavier Morales

There's a health crisis in the U.S., especially in our communities, and especially among children. They target our communities with their marketing. We're going into those communities trying to save lives, and they're going out and erasing our message.feedback

Delman Coates

This campaign of deception has also been bestowed on the leadership of our major Latino and black organizations. The leaders of many of these organizations, like the average lay person, is just not aware of the science.feedback

Delman Coates

It's become really clear to me that we're losing more people to the sweets than to the streets. There's a great deal of misinformation in our communities, and I think that's largely a function of these deceptive marketing campaigns.feedback

William Lamar

I am disgusted by the number of hospital visits I make. It just adds to the injustices all around us.feedback

James Quincey - The Coca-Cola Company

We are pleased to have reached this agreement with the South African government which demonstrates our alignment with the government's national imperatives for inclusive social and economic development.feedback

Caroline Lucas

Global plastic bottle use is spiralling out of control. The environmental consequences of a million plastic bottles being used every minute are absolutely devastating.feedback

Caroline Lucas

As consumers we can all make choices which limit our plastic bottle use, but the key to solving this crisis is action from governments. That's why I'm calling for a bottle deposit scheme to be implemented urgently. Currently Britain uses 38.5m plastic bottles every day – and we should be leading the world in reusing bottles and rapidly reducing our plastic waste.feedback

Tisha Brown - Greenpeace

It cannot be right that our beaches, seas and the stunning wildlife they are home to should become the final dumping ground for throwaway plastic bottles and other plastic trash. With a truckload of plastic entering the ocean every minute, we need urgent action from governments and from major soft drinks companies which produce billions of single-use plastic bottles every year, like Coca-Cola, to stop the flow of plastic into the sea.feedback

Jim Cramer

Can James Quincey, the freshman CEO, actually deliver on these turnaround plans?feedback

Jim Cramer

The reason? A lot has to do with the global shift away from soda, which is Coca-Cola's bread and butter. Carbonated drinks have become the slowest growing beverage category around, whereas PepsiCo has its Frito-Lay and Gatorade business to diversify away from the weakness in sugary sodas.feedback

Jim Cramer

On top of that, the company also talked about embracing a leaner, more agile operating model. We didn't get too many details here yet, but we know it involves reshaping their local business units and doing a better job of hiring executives and managing their performance. Plus, the new Coca-Cola wants to bet more heavily on digital.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think Coca-Cola is worth watching for the possibility that this transformation they've talked about is going to really happen. But if you're thinking about owning a beverage stock, I'm still going to recommend sticking with PepsiCo. Nevertheless, you know what, if you wanted to buy some Coke now and wait for a pullback, you have my blessing. I think the company's set up for a real good 2018, and you may have to start buying it now to get in on those gains.feedback

Jim Cramer

Maybe it's taken Coca-Cola too long to re-calibrate itself. I get that. But now they have a new strategy, a new CEO and the leanest structure it has had in ages. That matters, and the profits will flow right through to the bottom line in a much fatter way than I think people realize. The company understands that it needs to find new ways to win in a world where many consumers just don't want to drink soda anymore.feedback

Austin Dillon

It hasn't sunk in. I can't believe it. We're in the chase, baby. It's awesome.feedback

Jim Cramer

He's looking at great franchises: Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, ... Citigroup, riding them high. I'm with him because I, like Sarge, struggle to relate any of these political stories – whether it be Comey or Trump or Russian influence into the election – to the actual market.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

I'm one quarter Coca-Cola. If I eat 2700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola. I drink at least five 12-ounce servings. It's a different sort of place. We have 25 people in the office and if you go back, it's the exact same 25. The exact same ones. We don't have any committees at Berkshire. We don't have a public relations department. We don't have investor relations. We don't have a general counsel. We just don't go for anything that people do just as a matter of form.feedback

Jim Cramer

It delivered you exactly what we've come to expect from [CEO] Indra Nooyi's PepsiCo, a dependable set of numbers with great execution and a lot more organic growth that Coca-Cola. PEP just isn't going to be rewarded for doing its usual great stuff after that kind of advance. So you get this kind of pullback, the kind of pullback that lasts for a couple of days and then you buy. Even though the numbers were terrific, though, it wasn't terrific enough. I don't know if anything could have been enough to move the stock higher after that move.feedback

James Quincey - The Coca-Cola Company

I think here the clear intent is that this [reinvestment] is more directed to some of the newer categories or some of the other categories to drive growth.feedback

Laurent Grandet

After the refranchising, the core Coke business will deliver EPS growth not seen for at least the last five years.feedback

Jim Cramer

When you consider that IBM's got a 3.5 percent yield, an incredible base of installed business, a partnership with Salesforce.com that should begin to produce results even in the second half of this year, and the CFO's promise that the unsigned business will be signed very soon ... I do not want to sell IBM's stock around $160. I'd rather buy it. I trust the Credit Suisse report. I trust Coca-Cola. I think the turn really is at hand and Muhtar Kent has made it so his successor, [Coca-Cola President and COO James] Quincey, will be coming in hot.feedback

Jim Cramer

That makes these franchisees more attentive, more willing to hire new workers, and more amenable, focusing on making the stores cleaner, brighter [and] more competitive in an increasingly dog-eat-dog fast-food world. In short, the turn here is real.feedback

Jim Cramer

The bottom line: I say turnarounds take time. You need to be patient, so I say hold onto your IBM, because they can still get it right. That said, unlike Coke, unlike McDonald's, unlike Wal-Mart, the fact that IBM's turn hasn't happened yet since [CEO Ginny] Rometty took over in 2012, makes me feel that if they don't get it right this year, then maybe the shareholder base, perhaps even largest shareholder Warren Buffett, will demand to bring in a new leader who can finally get the job done.feedback

Laurent Grandet

After the refranchising, the core Coke business will deliver EPS growth not seen for at least the last five years. We expect price/mix will more than compensate for soft CSD [carbonated soft drinks] volumes with continued volume growth in select NCB [non-carbonated beverages] categories, complemented further by strong growth in equity earnings from the bottlers and Monster Beverage investments.feedback

Even Holod

We know how much people love finding their names on Coca-Cola bottles, so this year we brought back names and added more names than ever.feedback

Darren Tristano - Technomic

I think it's subtle and appears to be aimed at younger generations. I think they also want to showcase the fact that McDonald's is online... I think it's a nice gimmick and a strong testimonial from a celebrity. Very likely it won't move the needle, but it does represent a classy shift to a more focused advertising model. I would guess that Coke funded this commercial since it heavily focuses on the partnership between McDonald's and Coca-Cola.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think it deserves a bigger premium and I'd be a buyer of JBT right here.feedback

Jim Cramer

Could JBT's strength be because its food equipment is better, is more the kind of stuff used by farmers and food processors, while Welbilt's focused on restaurants? Yeah, that's it.feedback

Mike Tuchen - Talend

Well, right now, the entire industry is moving to cloud and big data, so that part of our business is just exploding. Those two product lines are just like a freight train right now. And it's true for us, but it's really true industry-wide.feedback

Mike Tuchen - Talend

But if it were just that, then the competitors would just go and cut their price and be able to compete on a deal-for-deal basis. But it's the combination of simply being better technically at these new scenarios as well as, of course, being a better deal. That's why we're growing at 100 percent there and that's why our customers are coming to us.feedback

Ryan Miller

It's all about money and Coca-Cola and where you can put the rings and where you can't. Of course it's self-interest because if it gets too much warmer, there won't be any more Winter Olympics because we won't have any more snow. So it's a natural. Everybody would understand why the I.O.C. would be engaged in that.feedback

Larry Tabb

I have no clue why the VIX is at 11 / 12 instead of 16 or 18. No one is figuring out if Coca-Cola or Pepsi should be worth more or less – folks are just buying Coke and Pepsi based upon their market cap.feedback

Linda Steele

Warren Buffett is the financial god in China. He is being praised in China as the one who can never be beaten in the stock market. Many Chinese investors are crazy about him.feedback

Muhtar Kent

I can't think of a better way to launch Cherry Coke than with its best-known fan on the package. It is an honor for us to be able to feature Warren on his favorite drink as it rolls out in one of the world's most exciting and dynamic consumer markets.feedback

Jae Goodman - Creative Artists Agency

It's the same elements that make it a great, great story, that touches you, that sparks the right emotion, that gives you the same great response that an Oscar-winning movie would give you. However, it also needs to drive those brand and business results. If Coca-Cola makes a great feature film and doesn't sell more Coca-Cola, then that's a failure on Coca-Cola's part.feedback

Juliette Feld

There really aren't a lot of brands that have existed that long. It's older than Coca Cola.feedback

Russell R. McMurry

We are as eager to learn the cause of this fire as anyone, which is why we will continue to work closely and in full cooperation with fire investigators to determine exactly how the fire was started.feedback

Russell R. McMurry

At this time, we do not have an anticipated duration for the repairs as we have not been able to fully access the site due to hotspots, but we do know that it is expected to be a time consuming event.feedback

Andrea Teixeira

We believe that the Coca-Cola partnership will allow MNST to become more competitive abroad. In existing international markets, we believe that Monster will be able to leverage the expertise of KO bottlers to improve distribution and execution, particularly in countries where MNST has historically been weak. We believe that Monster could prove to be one the biggest beneficiaries of potential corporate tax reform in our coverage universe.feedback

Philip Hammond

Unusually for a chancellor I am delighted to announce a reduction in the expected yield of a tax, the soft drinks levy. Producers are already reformulating sugar out of their drinks, which means a lower revenue forecast for this tax.feedback

Miles Beale

It is disappointing that the chancellor has failed to support a great British industry. Between Brexit's impact on the pound and rising inflation the wine and spirit businesses face a tough trading landscape.feedback

Ali Brubaker - The Coca-Cola Company

It's a human story where Coca-Cola plays a key role in the development of the drama. We are managing culturally relevant messages organically within our spots not as the main subject of the story but as subtext.feedback

Marco Baldini - Barclays

Investors are seeing floaters as super-defensive instruments to put money in, considering the political uncertainly in Europe right now. We're seeing a number of accounts voicing their concerns around this risk, and floaters are attractive investments.feedback

Marco Baldini - Barclays

This is the first time we've seen an above par pricing on a public corporate deal, and it's been done by Coca-Cola and Pfizer in a very visible way. It's a game-changer and it could unlock a reasonable amount of floating-rate supply with above par pricing features.feedback

Rodney Sacks - Monster Beverage

We are pleased to report continued progress on the strategic alignment of our distribution system with Coca-Cola bottlers, both domestically and internationally.feedback

Caroline Taylor - International Business Machines

I think that marketing tapping into that concept of enlightened self-interest is a very powerful thing, and it's just as powerful as the 'Mad Men' days of persuading [people] you needed something when you absolutely didn't, but it actually has a much more pivotal role in society. There used to be a running joke in my world, that if you took a bunch of tech marketers to take over at Coca Cola, you'd end up marketing brown sugar water and you'd be talking about bubble velocity, and the good news is we've all really moved on.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

It's the same metric I use for buying any asset. There's no special trick in the valuation. There can be a problem in figuring out what's inside the bank. Otherwise, I'm just looking at it like it's Coca-Cola or American Express.feedback

Bobby Oliver

There's proven data that people actually love it. It's not just a survey where people say yes or no. We're not disappointed at all.feedback

Ali Dibadj

Basically, you're becoming a branding company and selling a little syrup on the side.feedback

James Quincey - The Coca-Cola Company

We upped the marketing investment, we improved execution, we transformed the bottling system – refranchising it – and I think the whole team has pulled that together. We, globally, have been driving Coca-Cola Zero Sugar with graphic changes, with formula changes and that's starting to build global momentum. There's a future for no calorie.feedback

James Quincey - The Coca-Cola Company

But I think the most important thing is to look through all that and look at the core underlying business – the business that's going to be left once we finish this transformation. It grew revenue in the full year 2016, 4 percent. It grew profit before tax, even with a higher interest charge, 8 percent. So we're seeing a strong, robust... business being created from this transformation...that's the business we see emerging into the future.feedback

Duane Standford - Beverage Digest

Investors like to see Coke asset-light.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

I'm one quarter Coca-Cola. If I eat 2700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola. I drink at least five 12-ounce servings. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.feedback

Muhtar Kent

Coca-Cola Co. is resolute in its commitment to diversity, fairness, and inclusion, and we do not support this travel ban or any policy that is contrary to our core values and beliefs.feedback

Jim Cramer

If you believe that the Trump rally has truly gotten off track, than Coca-Cola is exactly the kind of stock you should be buying.feedback

Bonnie Herzog - Wells Fargo Securities

We don't believe KO will be immune from the staples rotation underway. We see limited upside potential to KO stock in 2017 given increased earnings pressure due to significant macro/structural headwinds ... and we see little reason for investors to continue to reward KO with multiple expansion.feedback

Erin Gibbs - S&P Global

We still like several Consumer Staples companies, including KO [Coca-Cola] and PG [Procter & Gamble]. Consumer staples stocks actually have a slightly less foreign revenues than the broader S&P 500 index, with a little more [than] 35% of sales coming from outside the US.feedback

Jim Cramer

I mean, there's 12 companies that need to increase double digits in order to get back to where they were. Why do we keep asking Goldman to do so much? First of all, they don't even have Gary Cohn anymore. They don't even have a repeal of the Volcker Rule yet.feedback

Jim Cramer

Because interest rates are down big today. So, that's going to put pressure on the banks. If we're trying to get to Dow 20,000, you may see on the tape in the bottom a lot of good things, but you lose Procter, you close Coca-Cola and you lose Goldman Sachs and you lose JPMorgan, you're not going to get where you need to go.feedback

Judy Hong - Goldman Sachs Group

KO's sales growth is also likely to again be sub-par in 2017, as we see its organic sales growth continuing to lag the global non-alcoholic beverage category given a portfolio mix that still skews to slower-growth categories. We expect KO to be a relative underperformer in staples again in 2017 based on downside risk we see to consensus estimates on refranchising/FX headwind to EPS.feedback

Maia Kats

The notion that Coke's products can be part of a healthy diet is imprinted on the minds of millions if not billions of people, and requires corrective action, . PepsiCo "is not promoting itself as a voice of science, or misrepresenting the harms of sugary beverages the way Coca-Cola is.feedback

Tim Seymour - Triogem Asset Management

Nike's management is some of the best. I think it's an oligopoly with they and Adidas. I think they will win again after really falling behind over the last couple months.feedback

Mike Khouw

It isn't quite the oligopoly that it once was. The Under Armours of the world sort of coming in and eating their lunch sometimes, that's part of it.feedback

Andrew Keene

So my trade is buying the KO – otherwise known on the trading floor as 'Knockout' – May 44/45 bull call spread.feedback

Andrew Keene

I think it's a good reward-to-risk setup using that unusual options activity, also using that reward-to-risk setup in the option market.feedback

Bill Schmitz - Deutsche Bank

Consumer staples as an indiscriminate, yield enhancing asset class propped up by index funds is still long in the tooth, especially if, as we expect, outsized passive investments in the group head to perceived greener growth pastures better aligned with an improving U.S. macro environment.feedback

Nik Modi - RBC Capital Markets

People really like him [James Quincey] within the organization. He's created a very collaborative culture.feedback

Adam Fleck - Morningstar

Over his [Kent's] tenure you've seen a real secular shift away from carbonated soft drinks, and that's had a huge impact on Coke. The ability to recognize that and invest internationally, invest in non-carbonated brands and understand the nuances of each market… have been hallmarks for his tenure.feedback

Howard Telford - Euromonitor International

The transition in leadership at the company in 2017 will conclude a busy period of transition in Coca-Cola's overall business. The company is working towards a 100 percent refranchised bottling model in North America while refranchising to key anchor bottlers internationally as well, as it seeks to become a more nimble, profitable and less capital intensive operation.feedback

Howard Telford - Euromonitor International

The challenge for the next leadership team at the company will be ensuring continued sales growth in this new consumer environment.feedback

Bonnie Herzog - Wells Fargo Securities

James Quincey is the right person to lead Coke into the future. He will bring a refreshing approach to running the business. Moreover, we tend to believe that given James' background and significant deal experience, he could accelerate Coke's growth even further through stepped-up acquisitions over the next several years.feedback

Nik Modi - RBC Capital Markets

If you go back in history, usually there's a CEO who gets fired and they have to bring in a new CEO. In this case, you're seeing a much smoother transition.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

As Chairman and CEO, Muhtar has been an excellent steward of Coca-Cola's business over the last eight years and I am thankful for the leadership he has provided to put in place the right vision, strategy and thoughtful succession plan for long-term success. I know James and like him, and believe the company has made a smart investment in its future with his selection.feedback

Hun Sen

This shows that we don't discriminate against any foreign investments.feedback

Dimitris Lois - Coca-Cola HBC

As this happens, we will become more active in M&A. With regards to geographic expansion, we have said that it's something we would consider subject to any expansion being in line with our growth aspirations and financially sound.feedback

Muhtar Kent

We continued to see solid revenue results in our developed markets with 2 percent unit case volume growth and a continued focus on price realization. The United States, Japan and Western Europe delivered standout performance underpinned by innovation and world-class marketing. Globally, we gained nonalcoholic ready-to-drink value share for the 37th consecutive quarter and are on track to deliver our financial commitments for the full year.feedback

Daniel Aaron

These are really powerful medical groups. The fact that they're accepting money from soda companies may influence doctors and policy.feedback

Daniel Aaron

Although soda companies say they're beneficent, this study shows what they really care about is improving profit – not public health.feedback

Lorrene Ritchie

I understand exactly why all these organizations take money. In public health, I'm not selling anything. There's no way to make money unless people fund that work.feedback

Daniel Aaron

The health organizations themselves have a duty to stop accepting this money.feedback

Lorrene Ritchie

Lots of us were unhappy about our organization taking soda industry money.feedback

Daniel Aaron

The diabetes organizations were really surprising because of the established link between soda and diabetes.feedback

Michael Siegel

Health and medical organizations would naturally be expected to promote policies that reduce soda consumption. However, it has been documented that a number of health organizations have retreated from this responsibility by withdrawing from public debate on policies to reduce soda consumption, opposing soda legislation, or actually collaborating with soda companies to produce joint educational materials.feedback

Michael Siegel

From 2011 to 2015, the Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo were found to sponsor a total of 96 national health organizations, including many medical and public health institutions whose specific missions include fighting the obesity epidemic. During the study period, these two soda companies lobbied against 29 public health bills intended to reduce soda consumption or improve nutrition.feedback

Michael Siegel

By accepting funding from these companies, health organizations are inadvertently participating in their marketing plans. Now, most organizations refuse tobacco money. Perhaps soda companies should be treated similarly.feedback

Marion Nestle

Food company sponsorship, whether or not intentionally manipulative, undermines public trust in nutrition science, contributes to public confusion about what to eat, and compromises dietary guidelines in ways that are not in the best interest of public health.feedback

Trevor Stirling - Sanford Bernstein

They know they're potentially next on the menu and the idea of them having a potential hostile acquirer as your key partner in Africa is not something I think will sit well with Coca-Cola. So even if they weren't a potential acquirer ... that in itself would sit uneasily.feedback

Dimitris Lois - Coca-Cola HBC

We do forecast an improvement (in the back half). This improvement reflects one more selling day and additional initiatives we have focusing on very strong marketing calendars.feedback

Bill Schmitz - Deutsche Bank

While there are justified growth concerns related to the fallen BRICs [Brazil, Russia, India and China], especially China (but modestly offset by Indian strength), we continue to believe Coke is building a much better mouse trap more closely aligned with the realities of consumption drivers in the different markets where it competes, even if it isn't readily apparent in recently reported results.feedback

Ivan Menezes

Out of Brexit, our focus is really on ensuring that we keep Scotch whisky healthy. The trade agreements in Europe and around the world. You know, Johnnie Walker (Diageo's leading brand of whisky) was in over 100 markets, long before Coca Cola left the shores of America.feedback

Muhtar Kent

Strong performance in some of our largest and most developed markets, including the United States, Mexico and Japan, was offset by difficult external conditions in many of our emerging and developing markets, including China and Argentina.feedback

Mark Feldstein

Whoever invented the Coca-Cola formula has long since passed this Earth, but the brand keeps selling because people like the taste. I think that's how it's going to be with Roger Ailes. He invented this winning formula and all you have to do is not mess with it too much and it will continue to mint money for you.feedback

Dennis Davitt - Harvest Volatility Management

The other story about this is this is a stock that's now a yield stock. So we see it similar to Coca-Cola, Philip Morris, Procter & Gamble. Those stocks all have a 3 percent dividend yield. Microsoft now pays a 2.5 percent dividend and it trades roughly at a 26 P/E.feedback

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

I can't help but think of how Donald Trump reminds me of a fifth-grader running for president of his class, promising to put Coca-Cola in the water fountains. It may get attention, but it's never going to materialize.feedback

Eric Gottlieb - D.A. Davidson

There may be competing bids in the coming weeks. Companies such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, General Mills, Campbell Soup and Kellogg "have all been rumored to have been interested in purchasing WhiteWave.feedback

Ben Sheidler - The Coca-Cola Company

Products containing GMO ingredients will have the required language printed on the label or, in some cases, on stickers.feedback

Zeg Choudhry

The regulator's been softer on the deal. It's not a done deal, but it's more doable now ... it's going in the right direction in favour of the merger.feedback

Nadia Lovell - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

If earnings continue to surprise on the upside, you could see people ... join the rally and that money from the sidelines will move into the market.feedback

Kathy Waller - The Coca-Cola Company

In the United States, in particular, we have a price-pack architecture strategy promoting the mini cans and the 8-ounce glass bottles. the strategy was doing well in the region.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

I think my 'popularity' in China is due to the huge interest in stocks in China that has developed in just a couple of decades. I was in the right place at the right time as the Chinese looked around for famous investors. Also, they like old guys; Charlie's my only competition.feedback

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

When you have the recouping of all of the losses from a prior bear market, which is what the S&P 500 did back on May 30th of this year, I think going forward it adds confirmation that this bull market is alive and well.feedback

Jez Frampton - Interbrand

Brands like Apple and Google and Samsung are changing our behavior: how we buy, how we communicate with each other, even whether we speak with each other. They have literally changed the way we live our lives.feedback

Jean-François Narbonne

There is no link to cancer in humans. The dose consumed each day is extremely small, so that's why there's no risk.feedback

Michael Jacobson - Center for Science in the Public Interest

Even the amount of 4-methylimidazole that remains in California colas exceeds the amount that the FDA considers acceptable. We've urged the FDA to take action and get this caramel colouring off the market.feedback
