  • Rotem-Wildeman was the last buyer with a 53,837 share pickup in June, which came to $1.84 million. Otherwise, company executives have been regular buyers of shares this year, more than offsetting a few insider sales.

    Overall, company insiders own a sizeable 31.6 percent of shares.

    The beverage producer is down 16 percent over the past year, even as earnings jumped nearly 188 percent and revenues rose by 5 percent.

    That disconnect between the company’s solid fundamentals and a declining share price has pushed the stock to 16 times forward earnings.

  • Special: $1,300 into $45,000 in just 4 MONTHS?!
  • Action to take: Investors may like shares for some short-term upside, as well as the fact that beverage companies are defensive and should hold up if markets see further downside from here.

    At present, Keurig Dr Pepper pays a 2.8 percent dividend yield, and they’ve raised that payout over time.

    For traders, the January 2024 $33 calls, last trading for about $0.30, could see high-double-digit returns or better on a rally into next year.

    Shares have long-term strength in the $33 range, so this looks like a reasonable trade getting off of today’s oversold prices.
