Repeat call activity in Coke

Repeat call activity in Coke. The stock off 56c to $41.48 and 15K Nov 44 calls trade for 79c when bid-ask was 75 to 79c, tied to 450K shares. The call buyer appears to be adding to 15K opened for $1.01 yesterday. Open interest is 17K and, adding the 15K today, will create the second largest open interest in the name (just behind the 42.8K at the Jun 47 call strike). Nov 44 calls are struck 6% above spot and capture earnings in July and October.

Outperform
Coca-Cola can achieve its revenue growth target, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi keeps his Outperform rating and $56 price target on Coca-Cola - his "top mega cap pick" - despite the poor investor sentiment on the stock driven by "rising rates, ETF outflows, and sector rotation". Modi believes that the slowdown in volume growth from 2013 was driven by specific issues around the company's bottler partners and decelerating macro environment, however the more recent data from global bottlers suggest "accelerating share gains, improving emerging market macros, improving local level execution, and more effective marketplace investment". The analyst adds that despite the stock outperforming relative to other staples, it can gain as much as 40% more over the next two years.

Sell
PepsiCo downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong downgraded PepsiCo (PEP) to Sell and lowered her price target for the shares to $110 from $118. The potential for continued softer North American Beverage volumes could weigh on the company's organic sales growth, Hong tells investors in a research note. She believes PepsiCo's organic growth underperformance relative to Coca-Cola (KO) could widen. Further, Coca-Cola's current price-to-earnings premium versus PepsiCo of 10% could widen to 15%, the analyst contends.

Neutral
Coca-Cola upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong upgraded Coca-Cola (KO) to Neutral while reducing her price target for the shares to $46 from $47. The analyst coupled the upgrade with a downgrade of PepsiCo (PEP) to Sell. For Coca-Cola, the analyst sees an improving organic sales growth outlook, "cleaner base" post-refranchising, and better visibility on its margin and earnings targets. She calls the company "one of the rare" over 4% organic growth mega-cap stories in Americas Beverages.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Pivotal Research with analyst Brian Wieser saying the company "has a lot of positive elements" heading into the back half of the year, including a strong film slate, the launch of new direct to consumer over-the-top services, and efforts in support of the close of the Fox (FOXA) transaction. 2. Coca-Cola (KO) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying she sees an improving organic sales growth outlook, "cleaner base" post-refranchising, and better visibility on its margin and earnings targets. 3. Merck (MRK) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst David Risinger saying the Keytruda+chemo combination showed better than expected results in lung cancer, boosting the company's immuno-oncology lead against Bristol-Myers (BMY). 4. Newell Brands (NWL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Bonnie Herzog saying the stock's setup is good looking forward, with greater potential upside than downside risk over the next 12 months. 5. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Brian Nowak citing recent advertiser conversations that have continued to be incrementally positive about Twitter's ad business.
