Bradesco BBI analyst Leandro Fontanesi downgraded Coca Cola Femsa (NYSE: KOF) from Outperform to Neutral with a price target of $60.00.

The analyst comments "KOF is FEMSA’s listed subsidiary that is a franchisee of the Coke system in LatAm. The stock has slightly outperformed the MEXBOL 5pp YTD, and we now see no TP upside. KOF is trading at a 1-yr fwd. P/E of ~15x, which does not seem particularly attractive, and implies ~15% discount to the historical levels. Volumes are at 8% above pre-pandemic levels, and we expect growth to moderate to ~2% YoY in 2H22 and ~1% in 2023, after growing 5% in 2021 and 7% YoY in 1H22. Upside risks: acquisition of other unlisted Coke bottlers or of other beer brands, as KOF looks to expand in this segment."
