A bit more predictable than the summer doldrums for stocks is the summer increase in demand for Coca-Cola (KO - Get Report) products, a popular subject of college economics classes. Of course, summer demand has nothing to do with why we're looking at the stock today. Instead, it's all about the upswing in analyst sentiment for shares of Coke.

Coke's network spans more than 200 countries, but there's still room for growth in many of the less mature markets that the firm serves.

In more mature markets, the battle is all about holding onto share and taking it from top rival Pepsi (PEP), particularly in the new beverage offerings that Coca-Cola adds to its product portfolio each year. With the top spot on consumers' drink shopping lists, an unmatched brand, and excellent consumer stickiness, Coke should continue to shine in 2012. In the shorter-term, we're betting on shares this week.
