Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) stock had a rough year in 2013, trailing the broader market significantly. But some observers see a brighter future ahead for the beverage giant. Barron's magazine, for example, said recently that Coke could jump by 20% this year, to reach $48 a share.

In the following video, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos gives his take on Coca-Cola's recent performance, and on its outlook for 2014. The stock may not spike as high as the Barron's target, he says, but Coke should still provide investors with plenty of rewards for holding on to its shares, including market share gains and increasing profitability.
