No one is paying attention to coke? Great. I'll say it again..GREAT.
Stocks like Coke and some of the best stocks in the world to own at any time. IF you are a long term investor then now is the time to get in to some KO. The price is down a bit and the "big guys" institutional investors are so enamoured with the tech stuff that they are missing out on the tried and true firms like Coke.

I own some KO shares in a DRP (dividend reinvestment plan). I like it when the price fluctuates because then my divs buy me more..and I can then put a little extra in the plan when the price is down. If money is tight then I just sit back and let the DRP work it's magic. Then when the stock splits....bonus.

My point? IF you are a long term guy it's always a good idea to buy the jewels like KO or G etc when nobody is paying attention.

Hope this helps.

ps: My father-in-law tells me that when it comes to ivesting take your time making decisions. IF you by in haste you can have a long time to repent your decision.
