Coca-Cola nails its first-quarter earnings. What should you be watching from here?

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Matt Argersinger discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Shares of Coca-Cola (KO 0.59%) were up more than 5% on Tuesday in the wake of higher-than-expected earnings. Revenue for Coca-Cola's first-quarter dropped by 1% but overall sales volume was up 4%. Coca-Cola reported strong growth in India, Russia, Mexico, and Brazil. Coca-Cola stock has been a solid long-term performer but shares have lost to Pepsi (PEP 0.98%) over the last year. Which stock is the better investment going forward? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts talk about the future of Coca-Cola.
