Coca-Cola stock up on future guidance

Shares are in the green also because the company reiterated its outlook.

Coca-Cola continues to see up to an 8.0% growth in its organic revenue this year on a 4.0% to 5.0% increase in adjusted per-share earnings. On CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”, CEO James Quincey said:

We see some disinflation but cogs important to use like sweeteners and juices are still substantially ahead of the prior year. Aggregate demand is there and there’s still a lot of global growth out there.

For the year, Coca-Cola stock is up less than 3.0% only.
