3 Reasons to Buy Coca-Cola

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin gives three reasons to buy pre-eminent blue chip Dow stock Coca-Cola. He looks at the company's volume growth, cost-cutting plan, and immense distribution network as just three reasons to consider the stock today. When you combine these three factors, you have an incredibly stable company that is still managing to grow and becoming more efficient while doing so. Should it run into trouble with its own brands, it also holds what he calls the "keys to the distribution castle."

And how could we talk about buying Coca-Cola without mentioning its hardy dividend yield? As good as it is, though, our analysts picked another competitor for their list of nine rock-solid dividends. With a mountain of evidence showing that dividends are the best long-term wealth builder out there, you shouldn't waste any time uncovering these winners.
