How has coronavirus impacted Coca-Cola's share price?

Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Coca-Cola's share price has had significant positive movement.

Its last close price was $62.04, which is 3.08% up on its pre-crash value of $60.13 and 71.05% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the shares fell as low as $36.27.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Coca-Cola shares at the start of February 2020, those shares would have been worth $641.15 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $1.00.

Is Coca-Cola stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Coca-Cola stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Coca-Cola's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

To put Coca-Cola's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

Coca-Cola share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 71.77% of net profits

Recently Coca-Cola has paid out, on average, around 71.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Coca-Cola shareholders could enjoy a 3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Coca-Cola's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.

Coca-Cola's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Coca-Cola's most recent dividend payout was on 2 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Coca-Cola's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Have Coca-Cola's shares ever split?

Coca-Cola's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 August 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Coca-Cola shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coca-Cola shares which in turn could have impacted Coca-Cola's share price.

Coca-Cola share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Coca-Cola's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.2313 up to $65.268. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

KO.US volatility(beta: 0.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Coca-Cola's is 0.5395. This would suggest that Coca-Cola's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

To put Coca-Cola's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
