Meanwhile, The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) formulates our favorite sodas. But Coke is expanding its portfolio of noncarbonated beverages, which consumers are increasingly reaching for over traditional colas. During the past several years, Coke has exemplified this commitment by acquiring growing brands such as Honest Tea, Odwalla juice, and, more recently, Innocent smoothies and Zico coconut water.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)‘s wildly popular iDevices have been flying off store shelves for years now. And even though the company is facing fiercer competition, it still boasts very impressive sales growth figures and enticing international growth prospects. I think Apple’s recent stock-price pullback presents an amazing opportunity to buy the stock now that it’s trading at a 52-week low.
Foolish bottom line
Forming good habits of saving money is so important, especially when you’re young and have time on your side. Surprisingly, these habits are actually more important than the amount of money you save. By diligently socking away just a small portion of your paycheck into your 401(k) or a Roth IRA, over time you’ll be astonished by how much the money has grown. Keep up the good work, young investors. You’re off to a fantastic start.
