Dividend Stock Analysis: The Coca-Cola Company

As Christmas is approaching, the sounds of the music rings in that the year is almost over.  I am still sitting on a sizable cash position that I am looking to deploy into an undervalued dividend stock – the one with the right metrics, that shows undervaluation, is performing better than the past, etc. Furthermore, there are investors who have capital built up, including myself, and I never like to let cash sit idle. Given this, I am constantly trying to find the right company, to invest my money, to gain value and build a dividend income stream. In my attempt to find a consumer-based company, one that will generate significant volume and revenue when economic times are good and bad, I turned to an iconic branded company.  This iconic branded company has been around for 130+ years and is also coined as one of the, “Dividend Aristocrats”, having increased their dividend for 25+ years.  In fact, this iconic company has delivered a streak of 55+ years of increasing their dividend.  Yes, I am talking about The Coca-Cola Company (KO).

When is the Best Time to Invest in the Market?

The following is a guest post from one of our friends, discussing a topic that we haven’t written about too frequently on our website.  Sure, we screen stocks to identify undervalued dividend growth stocks.  But we haven’t covered identifying the best time to trade for both short-term and long-term investors.   Please see the following post to learn more!
