Hi guys you are right. There are many different bottlers of Coca-Cola. (COKE) is the second largest bottler of Coca-Cola products in the US. The first is Coca-Cola Enterprises or (CCE) and hen of course the Coca-Cola Comapny (KO).
The parent company (KO) owns a percentage of each of its bottlers so any investment in an (COKE) or (CCE) is a pretty safe investment.
(COKE) is primarily based in 12 Southern States nd anyone who has ever lived in the south knows that Coca-Cola is and will always be big in the south.
CCE is the largest in the US and has holdings all over the world, (you may recall the Beligan scare last summer) that was CCE's and hurt their stock....they are trading at around 20 bucks now and I reccomend a buy and hold.
COKE is also recommended as a buy and hold. Quarterly dividens are pretty good and the stock hovers around 50 bucks. All three (KO) (COKE) and (CCE) should go up as the weather turns warmer, summertime is the best time for these stocks, esp in the south!
