There were three analyst downgrades of KO over the last few days, which is what caused the stock to drop.  It's crazy that a few analysts can move a stock 10% in three days.

I stand corrected - there was a fourth downgrade this morning.  Of course, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't be surprised if their companies were short KO and needed to buy some shares.

KO will make the same $1.90 per share in earnings that it made back in 2011. A time during which it's payout ratio has grown from 50% to 75% of earnings.

The only time it showed EPS growth was in 2018, when it got a windfall from the corporate tax cut.

Since 2011, revenues have steadily declined from $46B to $33.5B, while long-term debt has grown from $13.6B to $39.5B.

Share count isn't even declining anymore, because there isn't enough cash left over after dividends and capital spending to fund buybacks.

KO=IBM, it's just financial engineering at this point. Unless there is a major catalyst, I don't see where growth will come from.
I agree.  It's just a reliable income gaming stock for me. (with the help of options sale premiums).  IMO their path to growth is an acquisition when the market corrects hard and stays down awhile, whatever year that is.

NVTA only up 5% ?? You may want to add to that one  Big Grin

BEAM up big as well
If this keeps up, I'm going to have quite a few positions in my IRA called away on the 15th and 22nd. It's what I signed up for when I sold the calls.

I dance with options every week lately.   Big Grin   It's truly a long game that can't be judged in the short term when the market is insane.  The average monthly income is definitely there over time.  I am rapidly saving up for new trucks and a boat. If they get way deep in the money I will roll them forward no more than once before I give up.  If I like the stock and I can get another 1% income while I wait to see what the market will do I execute the roll.  I have LHX calls that have traveled from $3 to $13 and now back to .40 in a few months.  I rolled it once.  Nothing mechanical about it for me.  It makes sense or it doesn't.  I try hard to never defend a position for no reason., but I make thousands in income every year rolling so it's worth my time. There's no doubt it is tedious some months.  Good luck.  I am rolling a few today as I have options expiring every week.

This can continue longer than any of us think. Biden already mentioned another check. I am sure they will send one more check in March April if people aren't happy and politicians think economy isn't where they would like it to be. Who cares about deficit or inflation or what might follow.

Look at Tesla, the size of It and the way it's been running. Kicking myself for not catching the momentum cycle. Toyota's CEO put it nicely recently that EVs are more harmful to environment than a fuel efficient gasoline car. Think about where energy comes from, plastics, batteries, how batteries are disposed? It's a beautiful marketing gimmick and offcourse it's the cool car.

Bought back XOM calls before they started running out of profits. Added more LMT, Bought a little TXG, BEPC, SRE(thanks Eric, both look like wonderful stocks)

Gotta decide if this is gambling or investing.  There will always be a MOMO stock you wish you bought last year.  Bubbles pop and good companies take 10+ years to get back to even if you are holding the bad.  The backdrop is right for EV again, but I know I already missed the bus.  I'm am not going to get a 10 bagger buying now.

These companies are the future. They will continue to go up, dip and rocket higher. Long term the trend is up. All these stocks will be over $200-300. Developing transformative gene-based medicines for serious human diseases is the future. Don’t bet against science These are not your typical 1 drug companies. They are much more then that. And you cant win unless you play. Stick with T. That's more your speed    Big Grin

Oh another note there are still a lot of bargains in this market. You just have to find them. Once the robinhood traders go back to real work the volume will dry up and the highflyers will come back to value lol.

GD, LMT, ADP, HII, NOC, CVS, MO, PM, IBM, WBA, C , and the utilities are getting cheaper and the list goes on. Those are just a few off the top of my head

Today I added to FDX, TDOC, and BIPC 

I cant believe the run LB has had. Market is officially nuts lol

There are studies out there that have proven momentum to be the only edge in stock trading.
