Coca-Cola’s 4th quarter earnings per share and forecast [1] [2]

Coca-Cola reported a Q4 earnings per share of 0.45 USD, which matched the expected amount of analysts. The company generated a revenue of 10.1 billion USD, surpassing the predicted figure. During the fourth quarter, the average selling price of its products, including Sprite and Fanta, increased by 12%, while the number of unit cases sold decreased by 1%.

Coca-Cola Company predicted a 2023 profit higher than what analysts had expected, relying on the continued demand for its soft drinks despite multiple price increases to manage rising costs. The company saw the demand for its beverages stay consistent although they raised prices in recent quarters to counter growing costs related to freight, commodities, and labour. The company projected a full-year increase of 4% to 5% in adjusted earnings per share, surpassing the average analyst prediction of a 2.96% growth.

Expectations for the near future

Coca-Cola's Simply brand has expanded into the cocktail mixers market with the launch of Simply Mixology. The line consists of three natural flavoured juices – Strawberry Guava Mojito, Lime Margarita, and Peach Sour – aimed to be enjoyed with or without alcohol. The brand aims to cater to the growing trend of cocktail consumption and mocktail drinking. Alex Ames, the creative director for nutrition at Coca-Cola North America, said that the company wanted to simplify and enhance the at-home drinking experience with natural, great-tasting solutions that can be used as mixers or as ready-to-drink mocktails. However, they will have to make great effort, because one of their biggest competitors, Pepsi, also decided to enter that sector. [3]


We are talking about one of the biggest companies in the world, with proven history and proven results. It seems that also for their future, the company has great plans and strategy. And with the affordable price, it could be a nice opportunity to make potential profit.[1]
