Hi Fellow Fools,

A look at several business metrics and opportunities to see which is the better buy right now:

Business computing behemoth International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) might not seem to have much in common with soft drink titan The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), but there are more similarities than you might expect.

Both companies have been around for over a century. IBM was founded in 1911, while Coca-Cola's iconic soft drink was first unveiled in 1886. Both are dividend stalwarts, with IBM paying a dividend since 1913, whereas Coke's payouts began in 1920. Both represent prominent holdings for Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK-B) (NYSE:BRK-A) and each is in the process of a multi-year transformation, in an effort to revive lagging revenue and reinvigorate growth.
