[video] Quick Take: Earnings From Coca-Cola and Herbalife; Jim Cramer's Buyback Bet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- After the holiday on Monday, U.S. equities are mixed Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down slightly, and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq in positive territory.

World equity markets are slightly mixed as well, with the FTSE 100 up about 0.5% and the DAX down 0.14%. The Nikkei soared more than 3%. 

Jonathan Marino noted that Coca-Cola (KO) reported earnings before the open. Shares are lower after the company reported in-line earnings results of 46 cents per share and lower-than-expected revenues for the fourth quarter. 

The stock was down roughly 6% on the year headed into the report and is currently off an additional 4% following the results, which were accompanied by weaker-than-expected guidance.

Herbalife (HLF) will report earnings after the close, Marino added. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.25 per share, vs. $1.05 per share in the same period last year. The stock is up 70% in the past 12-months. 

Panera Bread Company (PNRA) and Potbelly (PBPB) will also report earnings after Tuesday's close. 

Lastly, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, is looking for Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) to boost its buyback plan. The stock is up 20% in the past year.
