Coca-Cola ~ KO

Q2 revenue growth of 12% was the fastest rate going back to 2011.KO has benefited from a transition away from company owned bottling operations globally which has driven improved profitability in recent years, although process is nearly complete.

Stock trades at a historically high valuation premium and appears relatively expensive with a disconnect from a long term earnings growth outlook.

Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO) has been something of a turnaround story with current CEO James Quincy successfully revitalizing growth through a lineup of new products following six consecutive years of declining sales.
