Coca-Cola in 1930

Cool blog that each day posts a summary of the Wall Street Journal from the corresponding day in 1930.

Here is one headline from this past Friday in 1930.

Coca-Cola estimates earnings for second quarter $4.50M compared to $3.94M in 1929. Says depression is having little effect on operations. Trying to increase sales in foreign markets; export sales were up 32% in 1929 and 82% in 1928. Now sold in 76 countries, up from 30 in 1926.

Coca-Cola will earn over $ 6 billion in 2009.


This site does not provide investing recommendations as that comes down to individual circumstances. Instead, it is for generalized informational, educational, and entertainment purposes. Visitors should always do their own research and consult, as needed, with a financial adviser that's familiar with the individual circumstances before making any investment decisions. Bottom line: The opinions found here should never be considered specific individualized investment advice and never a recommendation to buy or sell anything.
