A Look at Coke's Q3 Earnings Report

Investors in Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) have seen steady returns over the past three years, but they seem to be getting a little antsy over the company's recent earnings announcement. Investors watched shares drop, but what kind of takeaways can investors glean from the recent earnings release?

The hot topics for earnings this quarter were China, domestic growth, and energy drinks. It looks as though PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP  ) may join the energy-drink brigade in 2013 -- what does that mean for companies like Coca-Cola and Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST  ) ? It also appears Coca-Cola may have more competition overseas, with Pepsi making strong gains. Watch the following video as Fool analysts Isaac Pino and Blake Bos dissect what these developments mean for this beverage juggernaut.
