Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Arca is poised to drive volume growth in under-penetrated Latin American markets, leveraging Coke’s brand prowess and a strong product lineup in sodas and noncarbonated drinks.

Bears

We expect health awareness-driven headwinds to soft drink demand will likely gain traction in Latin America, posing a threat to Arca’s long-term growth.
