Challenge Project Post: Investing Basis - Coca-Cola (KO)

Ok, one last brief note, as I listen to the Coca-Cola (KO) conference call. Earnings were great for a company the size of Coca-Cola (KO) as the estimates were at $0.61 a share, and 7.21 Billion in Revenue. They reported $0.66 per share and stronger revenue (But flat for year of 2009 on currency to look to the larger picture)

I took some of the cash that I have set aside to dollar cost average (D.C.A.) in the Challenge Project "Investing Account", and took a nibble into KO again, and bought in at $53.90. Of course, the DRIP is on for this stock.

If you're a subscriber of the newsletter, I am not going to do this on the model portfolio, for money management and portfolio management reasons.

Now I'm going to go rest my eyes. Honest.
