Coca-Cola exercises option to buy AB InBev stake in Coca-Cola Beverages Africa

Coca-Cola (KO) announced its intention to acquire Anheuser-Busch InBev's (BUD) stake in Coca-Cola Beverages Africa following the closing of its combination with SABMiller (SBMRY). "The company has chosen to exercise its right to acquire ABI's stake in CCBA because it intends to implement its long-term strategic plan in these markets with other partners. While the company respects ABI's capabilities, it has a number of existing partners who are highly qualified and interested in these bottling territories. During the next few months, the company will negotiate the terms of the transaction with ABI according to the contractual parameters... Coca-Cola also will continue negotiations with potential partners, and plans to refranchise CCBA as soon as practical following regulatory approval. The company's intent is to account for the acquired stake as a discontinued operation for reporting purposes," the company said.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Discovery (DISCA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Barrington with analyst James Goss saying that Brexit and sports costs are dragging on its international results and foreign exchange tailwinds are moderating in many geographies. 4. Sonus (SONS) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Paul Silverstein saying the firm's industry checks uncovered operational challenges and ongoing employee and executive churn. 5. Alcobra (ADHD) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Cantor and to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Coca-Cola downgraded following Pepsi results at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel analyst Mark Swartzberg downgraded Coca-Cola (KO) to Hold from Buy. The analyst downgraded the stock after Pepsi (PEP) reported better than expected Q3 results. The analyst says that Coca-Cola's and Pepsi's organic EPS growth appears to be similar, but he believes that Pepsi is less vulnerable to foreign exchange fluctuations. Additionally, he believes that Coca Cola European Bottlers (CCE) is a better investment than Coca-Cola because of the large amount of revenue synergies which that Coca Cola European Bottlers has identified.

AB InBev's goal may be to acquire Coca-Cola, says HSBC
HSBC analyst Anthony Bucalo says SABMiller's (SBMRY) merger with AB InBev (BUD), which its shareholders just approved, will impact "nearly every major company across global beverages," especially Heinenken (HINKY). The combined company "represents a strong vehicle for another transaction" if InBev management chooses to do so, Bucalo tells investors in a research note dated yesterday. The analyst believes AB InBev's ultimate goal is the possible acquisition of The Coca-Cola Company (KO). The entire Coca-Cola bottling system, especially for Mexican giant FEMSA (FMX), is impacted by SABMiller joining with AB InBev, Bucalo contends.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. EP Energy (EPE) downgraded to Underperform and Underweight at BofA/Merrill and Capital One, respectively, with analysts saying EP Energy's planned sale of Haynesville for $420mm is not a surprise and balance sheet headwinds remain. BofA/Merrill continues to see leverage as a headwind and does not see how the company can live within its cash flow while production declines in 2016. 2. Amazon.com (AMZN) downgraded to Outperform at Raymond James by analyst Aaron Kessler, who expects Amazon's pace of margin expansion to slow and he sees increased competition to its Web Services unit from Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) Cloud Platform. 3. Copa Holdings (CPA) downgraded to Sell at Evercore ISI by analyst Duane Pfennigwerth, who cited recent shares strength. 4.

SABMiller deal could be blocked, terms may be sweetened says Stifel
Stifel believes that a minority SABMiller (SBMRY) shareholders could "effectively block" the company's proposed acquisition by AB InBev (BUD). The firm thinks that the deal's small premium and "the illiquidity" of AB's stock that would be transferred in the alternative, partial stock offering could motivate SABMiller's shareholders to block the deal. The firm thinks that AB InBev could sweeten the terms of the deal.

Nicholson raised her price target for the shares to $115 from $101.
