If you invested in Coke in 1998 or your father invested in 1998 (over 15 years ago), your stock will have grown by zero %. With the world moving toward healthy eating, Coke’s only chance for survival is really pushing fast food (Fat, Sick and nearly Dead). I don’t think so. Sugar, caffeine or sweeteners just doesn’t feed the world.
