Coca Cola Vs Pepsi

8 Sep

Coca Cola and Pepsi are two major beverage companies beloved by people all over the world.  Iconic name brands.  Coca Cola is the more popular brand indeed.  Most restaurants such as Macdonald’s carry Coca Cola as their main drinks.

Comparing the charts for the two companies, Coca Cola has surged 24% while Pepsi has underperformed with a slumping -7% for the past year.  Main differences between the two companies are the products they carry.  Coco Cola has focused on their beverages sector and stuck with what they know best.  While Pepsi has ventured onto snack foods where commodities such as corn and wheat have risen in price cutting they bottom line profits.

However, I think Pepsi has a solid array of name brand products such as Frito Lays; Tropicana; Quaker; Gatorade which are staples in every household.  Almost at its 52 week low @ $61.34, Pepsi Co. looks attractive to me.  I may just buy up a few shares and see where the wind blows!
