The call buy coincides with a key technical level for the stock. In the past six months, Coke has come nicely off the $40 mark three times.
"Each time the stock has bounced off these levels, it's rallied 10 percent," Added Nathan.
But despite the apparent floor at $40, Coke's technical setup presents a murky picture. The stock is very close to entering what traders call a death cross, when the 50-day moving average falls below the 200-day moving average. This is considered a bearish sign for technical traders.
With so much uncertainty surrounding the name, Nathan says options present a cheaper way to make a play on the Dow component.
"With the death cross looming, calls are a smart way to make a defined contrarian bet," said Nathan.
The expiry captures earnings on April 14, which will be investors' first look into how Coke is managing its currency exposure. Coca-Cola's 6 percent selloff this month coincided with a rally in the greenback. Since March 1, the U.S. dollar index is up 4 percent. About 53 percent of the company's sales are from outside North America, according to FactSet.
"This is when hopefully they should be able to give a little bit better guidance about how they are dealing with the dollar strength," said Nathan.
During the company's February earnings call, CEO Muhtar Kent warned that Coca-Cola will face "a bit more volatile" macroeconomic environment.
Coca-Cola is down 4 percent year to date.
