Coke Falls Flat

Coke Falls Flat

The following video is from Tuesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Isaac Pino dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Coca-Cola's latest earnings disappointed Wall Street, as volume growth was downright anemic. With the long-term trend of soda consumption in the United States on the decline, Big Red generates the majority of its revenue overseas. Surprisingly, Coca-Cola's executives blamed the poor results on bad weather. In our lead story on Investor Beat, Jason and Isaac discuss whether PepsiCo will suffer the same challenge of bad weather and if the dip in Coca-Cola's stock price represents a buying opportunity for investors.

Also, our analysts take a look at Tesla Motors' new downgrade, Johnson & Johnson's big second-quarter profit increase, Chuy's Holdings' downgrade, and Krispy Kreme's ill-advised share buyback. Plus, two stocks our guys have on their radar and that they'll be watching closely this week.
