Coca-cola's loss is PEPSI & DR. Pepper's gain
I am a shareholder of (DPS) 526 shares. Not a shareholder of (PEP).
But, the way I see it.... With no Coca-cola on store shelves at COSTCO nationwide... That could translate into surprising increase in sales for all other company soft drinks.
So the semi-pessimistic outlook given by DPS for Q4 may be offset by a boost in sales nationwide at COSTCO.... less selection...less competition....More sales.... This also helps PEPSI and any other company's selling soft drinks at COSTCO.
If you want to invest in off-brands.... do a search or visit your local COSTCO to see if there's anything out there...maybe (COT) gets a boost? (HANS) ???
