Dividend Yield: 2.79%

Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: Coca-Cola's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2012 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. Coca-Cola has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.83 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year, indicating improving cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 1.66% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
