good stocks to buy today

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) is a dividend growth machine that I started covering last fall with a buy rating, especially if you could get shares for under $40. I have said of course that shares appeared that would be tough to acquire under $40 but that chance has arrived. It finally happened. The stock has been a tough investment lately as it has been a name that has moved sideways to down here in 2016. But for those seeking a safe investment for income, Coca-Cola has to be on the list and the yield is now hitting 3.5%. Remember that when I started coverage I stated that Coca-Cola was a name that “you buy for income/dividend growth. Capital appreciation is secondary.” And friends, Coca-Cola is a sparkling example of a dividend growth name. I continue to think that the stock is best served in a long-term, tax deferred account like an IRA, with the ultimate goal of reinvesting the dividends and amassing a large position. But is this stock worth holding?

The short answer is yes, but I would go so far as to say this stock is approaching a real buying opportunity. I said under $40 I liked it. That hasn’t changed. But as the stock continues to fall, let it. Buy incrementally. Now, long-term is the buy worth it? For the long answer to this question I will examine the recently reported results and discuss the outlook for the stock. Let me start with some highlights. First the company saw revenue of $10.63 billion which beat analyst expectations by $9 million, but it was also down 7.0% year-over-year. Ouch. Earnings continue to be strong, with Q3earnings coming in at $0.49, which was a $0.01 beat against estimates.
