I could care less about the beverage. The potato chips are a different story.

Lays dominates a variety of markets. Selling cucumber flavor potato chips in Russia and crab flavored in China.

Workers in developing economies see many of these matter-of-fact American products as entry level luxury items.

PepsiCo’s brands provide a sustainable competitive advantage. They own nine out of the top 40 packaged goods trademarks in the United States. When you combine packaged food and soft drink brands, they own nine out of the top 50 in Russia, seven out of the top 50 in Mexico, and six out of the top 50 in the United Kingdom.

Financially, we can calculate the company’s long-term debt to equity ratio to be approximately 1.00. While this cannot be considered a low amount of long-term debt, we should also consider the following: the amount of stock bought back (aka treasury stock) and the interest coverage ratio. If we remove the effect of treasury stock, we can recalculate the long-term debt to equity ratio to be a more favorable 0.53. When we consider PepsiCo’s interest coverage, we find its operating profit to be 10.65 times its interest expense. This means that they need less than 10% of their operating profit to service their current amount of debt. Given these mitigating factors, I find the debt level acceptable. Note: I found the following website helpful when thinking about PepsiCo’s debt – http://www.wikihow.com/Analyze-Debt-to-Equity-Ratio.

At the end of the calendar year of 2013, the company had $9.4 billion dollars in the bank (up from $6.3 billion at the end of the calendar year of 2012). In addition, free cash flows have been strong and growing – $7.0 billion, $5.9 billion, and $5.7 billion for 2013, 2012, and 2011, respectively.

Finally, the company has strong and seasoned management. In fact, the top twelve executives possess over 200 years of experience in the consumer packaged goods industry – an average of nearly 17 years per manager.

Based on the following factors: 1) a sustainable competitive advantage, 2) cash aplenty, and 3) strong leadership, I believe PepsiCo will outperform the market over the next five plus years.

Note: All the information above can be found in the company’s 2013 annual report, which they have posted on their investor relations website.

As we begin to learn about the health effects we will consume less of Pepsi's products. They are too large to quickly adapt to the changing market and will lose economies of scale.

Besides being number 2 in the soda oligarchy it owns great brands like Gatorade and Frito-Lay. I think those who would split the company up are mistaken.
