Areas to Watch

Coffee Business Performance

Keurig Dr Pepper's coffee segment has faced challenges over the past year due to a decrease in coffee consumption at home, as individuals returned to offices. Investors will be closely monitoring any signs of improvement in this category's volumes.

Impact of Prices

The company successfully grew its revenue by 6% in the second quarter through an 8% increase in prices, which compensated for a decline in volumes. Investor focus will be on determining if Keurig Dr Pepper will sustain its pricing power and how it will continue to influence volumes.

GLP-1 Drugs

Given the recent surge in popularity of GLP-1 weight-loss drugs, analysts have been urging food and beverage companies to address the potential impact on their businesses this earnings season. Keurig Dr Pepper is expected to comment on its strategy for responding to possible shifts in consumption trends.
