UK Labor Market Shows Signs of Loosening as Unemployment Rises: ONS Report

Summary:

  • Coca-Cola’s earnings beat analyst expectations.
  • The deal between Twitter and Elon Musk is coming to life.

The earnings report posted earlier today by Coca-Cola exceeded investor and market expectations. These favorable earnings came despite their Russian business suspension, they managed to meet their full-year outlook for organic revenue and comparable EPS growth.

The growth seemed to come mainly from increased demand for powerade and Costa coffee. The price increase also came despite the increase in inflation and in costs such as aluminum, high fructose corn syrup and plastic.

The future of Coca-Cola’s stock price is uncertain, it may have managed to weather the inflation and market volatility storms for now, but we may not see the same growth in the next quarter.
