Break open a can of Pepsi. The cola wars are back baby. Well, kind of.
Over at The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO), Warren Buffett’s favorite, its first-quarter earnings were also better than expected.
On the top line, Coca-Cola’s revenue came in at $7.63 billion in the first quarter, significantly higher than the analyst estimate of $7.34 billion. On the bottom line, analysts were expecting earnings of $0.46 a share; KO delivered earnings that were a penny higher at $0.47 a share.
Naturally, with both companies beating estimates on both the top- and bottom-line, investors are wondering which of the two stocks is the better buy.

My timing, however, isn’t always so good, and I sometimes get in too early. But owning a great dividend-paying company at a fair price is better than owning a bad company at any price. Which is why I’m happy to have bought U.S. utility giant The Southern Company (NYSE:SO) and healthcare real estate investment trust (REIT) Ventas, Inc. (NYSE:VTR). And I’ll be just as happy if they fall further from here.
