Cristiano Ronaldo snub wipes billions off Coca-Cola's market value

Thu Jun 17, 2021 6:21 am

Cristiano Ronaldo is a European Football pop culture colossus, boasting almost 300 million Instagram followers.

What cojones he has!!!

No American Professional Football player would do that.... It's ALL about the Benjamins!!!

I quit Coke 20 years ago.

The world doesn't need Coke drinks. They do more harm than good. Am I right??

The only thing Coke is good for is use as a mixer. Can count on one hand the number of times I voluntarily drink Coke (or any other soda) in a year. Notable exception is ginger ale - that's a must on flights.

UEFA and Ronaldo sure likes their money. Aanyway, spoken like a true socialist, dictating choices to other people.
Here's an idea: Let's reduce the football game to just one period of 45 minutes. It would make the sport slightly less boring and the second 45 minutes could be allocated for overpaid sissies to performance their SJW antics, taking a knee for whover they want, play with bottles, advocate saving whales, etc. etc.

Are you suggesting whales don't need saving? Talk about arrogance. They've been around millions of years longer than our species, are sentient, and intelligent.

I was just asking a question. Trying to figure out what could prompt a flippant remark about preserving a wonderous and valuable species.

As for medical and public health professionals opining on how healthy soda is or why it may not be in someone's best interest to consume them - there is nothing 'dangerous' about professionals dispensing the advice they are licensed and qualified to give. Don't conflate their concern for everyone's welfare with some cockeyed plot to control individual liberties.

I was expecting a much sharper drop in the stock price. $54.67 isn't that much below $56.24 (monthly high).

Coca Cola is so many drinks, e.g. Dasini water, that they have a good base income.

res the healthiness of Coke, the old fashion 1940s bottles held 7 oz, and for most part were an occasional treat. Not a health issue then.

There is a growing conflict of athletes, their personal paid product endorsements, personal and political beliefs vs. those of team and event sponsors. Team and event sponsors pay big money for the product placements and expect maximum exposure without blocking or countering of their product or acts by athletes that turn off fans. In the USA we have had athletes who get paid to endorse Nike athletic shoes and clothes but a team has Adidas as it sponsor so have to cover up the Nike name/logo on their post event appearances. The team many have a sponsor for beer but the individual athlete may not drink any alcohol for religious, personal and health reasons. Still, Coke's stock share price shouldn't have dropped due to one athlete's public act.

Dasani. I don't get the point of buying bottled tap water for 5000 times the price or something. They tried to sell that in Europe but totally failed.

Whereas I can understand people liking coke even if it's bad for you.

At the end of the day the main issue is that Ronaldo gets paid by Coca-Cola directly or indirectly, so he can't do what he did. His manager will probably get some calls about not doing it again unless they want to receive letters written by lawyers...

Paul Pogba (practising Muslim) removing a bottle of Heineken from the desk at his presser doesn't seem to have generated anywhere near as much interest.

Slight irony - it was a bottle of alcohol-free beer.

Everything in moderation. Coke is neither good, nor bad. Just like wine, prime rib, sugar cookies, etc.

I fail to see how Ronoldo's water preference wiped billions of CC's Market share. The company is worth 230+ Billion, and while it was at 56, a drop of 2-3 % is not much considering the recent run up in price.

But we are not talking about a health professional. Ronaldo dropped out of school at the age of 14 and gets paid to kick into a ball.

So we’re muzzling celebrity opinions now because of your sour grapes some guy makes bank to kick a ball? The market decides and all that jazz. His fans will probably think about heeding his words - that doesn’t mean everyone else will, much less care.

Mexico *did* ban soda for everyone though, better watch out!

:checkmark: It's the same for all junk food (including basically all fast food) too. If you eat it as an occasional treat you'll be fine. If you start regularly having it you're going to start looking like a donut surprisingly quickly.

I think there's a largely unappreciated issue with how addictive many sugary drinks are. I have a cousin who will regularly have five or six glasses of coca cola in an evening and refuses to take any measures to reduce his consumption. I remember that the granddaughter of our neighbors at the beach house had a stroke or something in her teenage years. She drank as many as ten Red Bulls a day. That meant that she was taking over 100 cans of RB with her when she went up to her grandparents beach house for the school holidays. Just disgusting and really sad because it's pretty clear that there's addiction going on there.

Voss is tap water. It’s the same water the people living in Vatnestrøm have coming out of there taps. Voss by the way is 400km south of where Voss water is bottled.
