One Dow stock is ignoring the bad news, however. The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) shares have risen 1.4% to lead the Dow today. There’s little news out on the beverage giant, but Cyprus’ messy situation won’t severely impact this safe and stable global company; Coke is far too geographically diversified for regional economic turbulence to dent sales much. Today’s gains are a nice change for Coca-Cola, which has seen shares advance just 0.6% over the past six months.
