Coca-Cola is expected to report its first-quarter earnings before the bell Tuesday.

Here’s what Wall Street analysts surveyed by LSEG are expecting:

  • Earnings per share: 70 cents expected
  • Revenue: $11.01 billion expected

Coke’s rival PepsiCo reported a week ago that volume for its North American beverage business fell 5% in the first quarter. But Wall Street thinks that demand for Coke’s drinks, which include its namesake soda, Fairlife and Topo Chico, will be stronger.

However, a pullback in fast-food spending could weigh on Coke’s sales. Roughly half of the beverage giant’s revenue comes from away-from-home locations, such as sports stadiums, movie theaters and restaurants. Pepsi’s beverage business is more reliant on at-home consumption.

For 2024, Coke is forecasting organic revenue growth of 6% to 7% and a 4% to 5% increase in comparable earnings per share. The company expects foreign exchange rates will weigh on both its earnings and revenue for the full year.

Shares of Coke have fallen 3.5% over the last year, dragging the company’s market value down to $267 billion.
