               EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The primary purpose of this report is to identify and analyze the two
dominant companies in the soft drink industry and determine the strongest
performer as an investment opportunity. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo have been
competing in the soft drink sector for over a century and both companies
enjoy a high degree of brand consciousness globally. Coca-Cola has, until
recently, outpaced its number two rival considerably, both in the U.S. and
overseas. I will compare the two companies using the following criteria: (a)
comparative statistics (b) key ratios, and (c) the weighted average cost of
capital (WACC).

For the purpose of my report, all relevant financial data on both Coca-Cola
and PepsiCo was derived from the reliable Yahoo Finance and Morningstar
website and the accompanying 10-k reports. Coca-Cola's revenues have been
generally outpaced by PepsiCo's revenues with notable exception in 2000
when both companies approached parity in terms of revenue. The Financial
Times   reveals that Coca-Cola has made minimal gains which may be
attributed to the slow growth in the soft drink sector. Coca-Cola's income is
derived from 80% of its soft drink products, while PepsiCo's soft drinks are
responsible for only 20% of its income. Clearly, PepsiCo's wide range of
snack products serves to cushion the company from changing consumer
preferences. This is illustrated by the explosive growth of the bottled water
sector-a lucrative sector for both companies (i.e., Coca-Cola's Dasani and
PepsiCo's AquaFina). Consumers are quickly drawing a connection between
high-fructose corn syrup beverages (e.g., most soft drinks) and obesity and
are gradually shying away from them.

The combined market share of PepsiCo's soft drink brands increased to
49.1% in early 2005, outpacing Coca-Cola for the first time since Pepsi
entered Thailand 52 years ago. Thailand is one of a handful of world
markets where Pepsi is ahead of Coke in cola sales alone (Thai Press
Reports, 2007). Recently, PepsiCo announced its plans to boost its presence
in the Turkish market, with the goal of overtaking Coca-Cola. In order to
achieve this goal, the company will invest $30 to $40 million a year to
strengthen its presence. PepsiCo has the largest market share in the Middle
Eastern region, but faces strong competition in Turkey from Coca-Cola and
Ulker, producer of Cola Turka.


The FMCG sector represents consumer goods required for daily or frequent use. The
main segments of this sector are personal care (oral care, hair care, soaps, cosmetics,
toiletries), household care (fabric wash and household cleaners), branded and packaged
food, beverages (health beverages, soft drinks, staples, cereals, dairy products,
chocolates, bakery products) and tobacco.

The Indian FMCG sector is an important contributor to the country's GDP. It is the fourth
largest sector in the economy and is responsible for 5% of the total factory employment
in India. The industry also creates employment for 3 m people in downstream activities,
much of which is disbursed in small towns and rural India. This industry has witnessed
strong growth in the past decade. This has been due to liberalization, urbanization,
increase in the disposable incomes and altered lifestyle. Furthermore, the boom has also
been fuelled by the reduction in excise duties, de-reservation from the small-scale sector
and the concerted efforts of personal care companies to attract the burgeoning affluent
segment    in   the   middle-class   through   product    and   packaging    innovations.

Unlike the perception that the FMCG sector is a producer of luxury items targeted at the
elite, in reality, the sector meets the every day needs of the masses. The lower-middle
income group accounts for over 60% of the sector's sales. Rural markets account for 56%
of the total domestic FMCG demand.

Many of the global FMCG majors have been present in the country for many decades.
But in the last ten years, many of the smaller rung Indian FMCG companies have gained
in scale. As a result, the unorganized and regional players have witnessed erosion in
market share.

History of FMCG in India

       In India, companies like ITC, HLL, Colgate, Cadbury and Nestle have been a
dominant force in the FMCG sector well supported by relatively less competition and
high entry barriers (import duty was high). These companies were, therefore, able to
charge a premium for their products. In this context, the margins were also on the higher
side. With the gradual opening up of the economy over the last decade, FMCG
companies have been forced to fight for a market share. In the process, margins have
been compromised, more so in the last six years (FMCG sector witnessed decline in

Current Scenario

       The growth potential for FMCG companies looks promising over the long-term
horizon, as the per-capita consumption of almost all products in the country is amongst
the lowest in the world. As per the Consumer Survey by KSA-Technopak, of the total
consumption expenditure, almost 40% and 8% was accounted by groceries and personal
care products respectively. Rapid urbanization, increased literacy and rising per capita
income are the key growth drivers for the sector. Around 45% of the population in India
is below 20 years of age and the proportion of the young population is expected to
increase in the next five years. Aspiration levels in this age group have been fuelled by
greater media exposure, unleashing a latent demand with more money and a new
mindset. In this backdrop, industry estimates suggest that the industry could triple in
value by 2015 (by some estimates, the industry could double in size by 2010).

In our view, testing times for the FMCG sector are over and driving rural penetration will
be the key going forward. Due to infrastructure constraints (this influences the cost-
effectiveness of the supply chain), companies were unable to grow faster. Although
companies like HLL and ITC have dedicated initiatives targeted at the rural market, these
are still at a relatively nascent stage.

The bottlenecks of the conventional distribution system are likely to be removed once
organized retailing gains in scale. Currently, organized retailing accounts for just 3% of
total retail sales and is likely to touch 10% over the next 3-5 years. In our view, organized
retailing results in discounted prices, forced-buying by offering many choices and also
opens up new avenues for growth for the FMCG sector. Given the aggressive expansion
plans of players like Pantaloon, Trent, Shopper’s Stop and Shoprite, we are confident that
the FMCG sector has a bright future.

Budget Measures to Promote FMCG
  2% education cess corporation tax, excise duties and custom duties
  Concessional rate of 5% custom duty on tea and coffee plantation machinery

 Budget Impact
The education cess will add marginally to the tax burden of all FMCG companies
The dividend distribution tax on debt funds is likely to adversely effect the other
income components of companies like Britannia, Nestle and HLL
The measure to abolish excise duty on dairy machinery is a positive for companies like
Concessional rate for tea and coffee plantation machinery is a positive for Tata Tea,
HLL, Tata Coffee and other such companies
Duty reduction in food grade hexane will have a marginally positive impact on
companies like Marico and HLL
Area specific excise exemptions for North East, J&K, Himachal Pradesh will continue
to encourage FMCG companies to relocate to these areas.

India offers a large and growing market of 1 billion people of which 300 million are
middle class consumers. India offers a vibrant market of youth and vigor with 54% of

population below the age of 25 years. These young people work harder, earn more, spend
more and demand more from the market, making India a dynamic and aspirational
society. Domestic demand is expected to double over the ten-year period from 1999 to
2008. The number of households with "high income" is expected to increase by 60% in
the next four years to 44 million households.

        India is rated as the fifth most attractive emerging retail market. It has been
ranked second in a Global Retail Development Index of 30 developing countries drawn
up by A T Kearney. A.T. Kearney has estimated India's total retail market at $202.6
billion, is expected to grow at a compounded 30r5 per cent over the next five years. The
share of modern retail is likely to grow from its current 2 per cent to 15-20 percent over
the next decade, analysts feel.

       The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth largest sector in the economy with a total
market size in excess of US$ 13.1 billion. The FMCG market is set to treble US$ 33.4
billion in 2015. Penetration level as well as per capita consumption in most product
categories like jams, toothpaste, skin care, hair wash etc in India is low indicating the
untapped market potential. Burgeoning Indian population, particularly the middle class
and the rural segments, presents an opportunity to makers of branded products to convert
consumers to branded products.

       India is one of the world’s largest producers for a number of FMCG products but
its FMCG exports are languishing at around Rs 1,000 crore only. There is significant
potential for increasing exports but there are certain factors inhibiting this. Small-scale
sector reservations limit ability to invest in technology and quality up gradation to
achieve economies of scale. Moreover, lower volume of higher value added products
reduce scope for export to developing countries.
       The FMCG sector has traditionally grown at a very fast rate and has generally out
performed the rest of the industry. Over the last one year, however the rate of growth has
slowed down and the sector has recorded sales growth of just five per cent in the last four

       The outlook in the short term does not appear to be very positive for the sector.
Rural demand is on the decline and the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE)
has already downscaled its projection for agriculture growth in the current fiscal. Poor
monsoon in some states, too, is unlikely to help matters. Moreover, the general slowdown
in the economy is also likely to have an adverse impact on disposable income and
purchasing power as a whole. The growth of imports constitutes another problem area
and while so far imports in this sector have been confined to the premium segment,
FMCG companies estimate they have already cornered a four to six per cent market
share. The high burden of local taxes is another reason attributed for the slowdown in the
industry At the same time, the long term outlook for revenue growth is positive. Give the
large market and the requirement for continuous repurchase of these product.

A Brief Pepsi History

In 1893, Caleb Bradham,a young pharmacist from New Bern, North Carolina,
begins experimenting with many different soft drink concoctions. Like many
pharmacists at the turn of the century he had a soda fountain in his drugstore,
where he served his customers refreshing drinks, that he created himself. His most

popular beverage was something he called "Brad's drink" made of carbonated water,
sugar, vanilla, rare oils, pepsin and cola nuts.

One of Caleb's formulations, known as "Brad's drink", created in the summer of 1893,
was later renamed Pepsi Cola after the pepsin and cola nuts used in the recipe. In 1898,
Caleb Bradham wisely bought the trade name "Pep Cola" for $100 from a competitor
from Newark, New Jersey that had gone broke. The new name was trademarked on June
16th, 1903. Bradham's neighbor, an artist designed the first Pepsi logo and ninety-seven
shares of stock for Bradham's new company were issued.

                                        1898 - One of Caleb's formulations, known as
                                        "Brad's Drink," a combination of carbonated water,
                                        sugar, vanilla, rare oils and cola nuts, is renamed
                                        "Pepsi-Cola" on August 28, 1898. Pepsi-Cola
                                        receives its first logo.

                                        1905 - Pepsi-Cola's first bottling franchises are
                                        established in Charlotte and Durham, North
                                        Carolina. Pepsi receives its new logo, its first
                                        change since 1898.

1934 - A landmark year for Pepsi-Cola. The drink is a hit and to attract even more sales,
the company begins selling its 12-ounce drink for five cents (the same cost as six ounces
of competitive colas). The 12-ounce bottle debuts in Baltimore, where it is an instant
success. The cost savings proves irresistible to Depression-worn Americans and sales
skyrocket nationally.
Caleb Bradham, the founder of Pepsi-Cola and "Brad's Drink," dies at 66 (May 27th,
1867-February 19th, 1934).

1935 - Guth moves the entire Pepsi-Cola operation to Long Island City, New York, and
sets up national territorial boundaries for the Pepsi bottler franchise system.

1936 - Pepsi grants 94 new U.S. franchises and year-end profits reach $2,100,000.

In 1940, the Pepsi Cola company made history when the first advertising jingle was
broadcast nationally on the radio. The jingle was "Nickel Nickel" an advertisement for
Pepsi Cola that referred to the price of Pepsi and the quantity for that price "Nickel
Nickel" became a hit record and was recorded into fifty-five languages.

                                                   City but often booths would be set up
                                                   with mobile recording equipment that

brands was allowed; PepsiCo bought out its partners and ended the joint venture in 1994.
Others claim that firstly Pepsi was banned from import in India, in 1970, for having
refused to release the list of its ingredients and in 1993, the ban was lifted, with Pepsi
arriving on the market shortly afterwards. These controversies are a reminder of "India's
sometimes acrimonious relationship with huge multinational companies." Indeed, some
argue that PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company have "been major targets in part
because they are well-known foreign companies that draw plenty of attention."

In 2003, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a non-governmental
organization in New Delhi, said aerated waters produced by soft drinks manufacturers in
India, including multinational giants PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company, contained
toxins, including lindane, DDT, malathion and chlorpyrifos — pesticides that can
contribute to cancer, a breakdown of the immune system and cause birth defects. Tested
products included Coke, Pepsi, 7 Up, Mirinda, Fanta, Thums Up, Limca, and Sprite. CSE
found that the Indian-produced Pepsi's soft drink products had 36 times the level of
pesticide residues permitted under European Union regulations; Coca Cola's 30 times.
CSE said it had tested the same products in the US and found no such residues. However,

this was the European standard for water, not for other drinks. No law bans the presence
of pesticides in drinks in India.
The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo angrily denied allegations that their products
manufactured in India contained toxin levels far above the norms permitted in the
developed world. But an Indian parliamentary committee, in 2004, backed up CSE's
findings and a government-appointed committee, is now trying to develop the world's
first pesticides standards for soft drinks. Coke and PepsiCo opposed the move, arguing
that lab tests aren't reliable enough to detect minute traces of pesticides in complex
drinks. On December 7, 2004, India's Supreme Court ruled that both PepsiCo and
The Coca-Cola Company must label all cans and bottles of the respective soft drinks
with a consumer warning after tests showed unacceptable levels of residual
pesticides.[citation needed]

Both companies continue to maintain that their products meet all international safety
standards without yet implementing the Supreme Court ruling.[citation needed] As of
2005, The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo together hold 95% market share of soft-
drink sales in India. PepsiCo has also been alleged[attribution needed] to practice "water
piracy" due to its role in exploitation of ground water resources resulting in scarcity of
drinking water for the natives of Puthussery panchayat in the Palakkad district in Kerala,
India. Local residents have been pressuring the government to close down the PepsiCo
unit in the village.

In 2006, the CSE again found that soda drinks, including both Pepsi and Coca-Cola, had
high levels of pesticides in their drinks. Both PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company
maintain that their drinks are safe for consumption and have published newspaper
advertisements that say pesticide levels in their products are less than those in other foods
such as tea, fruit and dairy products. In the Indian state of Kerala, sale and production of
Pepsi-Cola, along with other soft drinks, has been banned. Five other Indian states have
announced partial bans on the drinks in schools, colleges and hospitals.

Coca-Cola originated as a soda fountain beverage in 1886 selling for five cents a glass.
Early growth was impressive, but it was only when a strong bottling system developed
that Coca-Cola became the world-famous brand it is today.

1894 – A modest start for a Bold Idea
In a candy store in Vicksburg, Mississippi, brisk sales of the new fountain beverage
called Coca-Cola impressed the store's owner, Joseph A. Biedenharn. He began bottling
Coca-Cola to sell, using a common glass bottle called a Hutchinson.

Biedenharn sent a case to Asa Griggs Candler, who owned the Company. Candler
thanked him but took no action. One of his nephews already had urged that Coca-Cola be
bottled, but Candler focused on fountain sales.
1899 The first bottling agreement
Two young attorneys from Chattanooga, Tennessee believed they could
build a business around bottling Coca-Cola. In a meeting with Candler,
Benjamin F. Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead obtained exclusive
rights to bottle Coca-Cola across most of the United States (specifically
excluding Vicksburg) -- for the sum of one dollar. A third Chattanooga
lawyer, John T. Lupton, soon joined their venture.
1900-1909 … Rapid growth
The three pioneer bottlers divided the country into territories and sold bottling rights to
local entrepreneurs. Their efforts were boosted by major progress in bottling technology,
which improved efficiency and product quality. By 1909, nearly 400 Coca-Cola bottling
plants were operating, most of them family-owned businesses. Some were open only
during hot-weather months when demand was high.
                1916 … Birth of the contour bottle
                Bottlers worried that the straight-sided bottle for Coca-
                Cola was easily confused with imitators. A group
                representing the Company and bottlers asked glass
                manufacturers to offer ideas for a distinctive bottle. A
                design from the Root Glass Company of Terre Haute,
                Indiana won enthusiastic approval in 1915 and was
                introduced in 1916. The contour bottle became one of the
                few packages ever granted trademark status by the U.S.

Patent Office. Today, it's one of the most recognized icons in the world - even in the

1920s … Bottling overtakes fountain sales
As the 1920s dawned, more than 1,000 Coca-Cola bottlers were operating in the U.S.
Their ideas and zeal fueled steady growth. Six-bottle cartons were a huge hit after their
1923 introduction. A few years later, open-top metal coolers became the forerunners of
automated vending machines. By the end of the 1920s, bottle sales of Coca-Cola
exceeded fountain sales.
1920s and 30s … International expansion
Led by longtime Company leader Robert W. Woodruff, chief
executive officer and chairman of the Board, the Company began
a major push to establish bottling operations outside the U.S.
Plants were opened in France, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Belgium, Italy, Peru,
Spain, Australia and South Africa. By the time World War II began, Coca-Cola was
being bottled in 44 countries.
                       1940s … Post-war growth

                       During the war, 64 bottling plants were set up around the world to
                       supply the troops. This followed an urgent request for bottling
                       equipment and materials from General Eisenhower's base in North
                       Africa. Many of these war-time plants were later converted to
                       civilian use, permanently enlarging the bottling system and
                       accelerating the growth of the Company's worldwide business.
1950s … Packaging innovations

For the first time, consumers had choices of Coca-Cola package
size and type -- the traditional 6.5-ounce contour bottle, or larger
servings including 10-, 12- and 26-ounce versions. Cans were also
introduced, becoming generally available in 1960.
1960s … New brands introduced
Following Fanta® in the 1950s, Sprite®, Minute Maid®, Fresca® and TaB® joined
brand Coca-Cola in the 1960s. Mr. Pibb® and Mello Yello® were added in the 1970s.
The 1980s brought diet Coke® and Cherry Coke®, followed by POWERADE® and
DASANI® in the 1990s. Today hundreds of other brands are offered to meet consumer
preferences in local markets around the world.
1970s and 80s … Consolidation to serve customers
As technology led to a global economy, the retailers who sold Coca-Cola merged and
evolved into international mega-chains. Such customers required a new approach. In
response, many small and medium-size bottlers consolidated to better serve giant

international customers. The Company encouraged and invested in a number of bottler
consolidations to assure that its largest bottling partners would have capacity to lead the
system in working with global retailers.

1990s … New and growing markets
Political and economic changes opened vast markets that were closed or underdeveloped
for decades. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Company invested heavily to build
plants in Eastern Europe. And as the century closed, more than $1.5 billion was
committed to new bottling facilities in Africa.
21st Century
The Coca-Cola bottling system grew up with roots deeply planted in local communities.
This heritage serves the Company well today as people seek brands that honor local
identity and the distinctiveness of local markets. As was true a century ago, strong locally
based relationships between Coca-Cola bottlers, customers and communities are the
foundation on which the entire business grows.


                 Coca-Cola Zero® has been one of the most successful product launch
                 hes in Coca Cola’s history. In 2007, Coca Cola’s sold nearly 450
                 million cases globally. Put into perspective, that's roughly the same size
                 as Coca Cola’s total business in the Philippines, one of our top 15
                 markets. As of September 2008, Coca-Cola Zero is available in more
                 than 100 countries.

         The analysis of three years of balancesheet of pepsi and pepsi has been done
         and from those data the projected balacesheet for the years of 2009 to 2013
         of five years has been counted with the simple average method.


         Assets are the most important part of the company it provides resources to
         the’s position can be predicted by the assets holding
         capacity.larger the capacity ,stronger the position of the company.assets
         includes cash receivables,short term investment ,inventory which will come
         under title of current assets.other assets like goodwill,plant,intangible assets
         will also included in the non title of fixed assets

         As per the projected data the cocacola’s last 3 years assets are 29936000(in
         06),(in 2007) and 3802000 (in 2008).while the projected assets calculated
         with simple average method the assets of cocacola is increasing every year
         than past three 2009 the assets will be 40714667, which is highest
         for the cocacola.pepsi is having the assets as of half than cocacola. In the
         year 2006 pepsi is having assets of 11927000,in 2007(13115000)and in year
         8 (12982000) that has decreased from the previous year. The main reason for
         the pepsi is having higher assets is it’s long term investment and property
         plant and equity more than 2008 cocacola is having 2% decrease in
         the assets while pepsi is having 8% decrease in the assets.from the projected
         data of 10 the assets of pepsi should be increased by 2% but cocacola will
         increase its assets more 7% in 2010.cocacola is having larger assets than
         pepsi so we can say that cocacola is very larger firm than pepsi.comparing
         the cash and cash equivalents cocacola is generating higher cash than
         pepsi.pepsi’s cash generation is very small and it will take long time to
         incease because it is almost 4 time lesser than of cocacola. Othe assets
         including inventory ,goodwill,intangible assets are more of cocacola than


Liabilities are the application of the resource of assets.liabilies are the
responsibility of the has to pay all it’s liability with in
certain time period.liabilites include two parts one is fixed liabilities and
othe is current liabilities.account payabe,short term debt will come under
title of current liabilities.long term debt and other liabilities will come under
title of fixed liabilities.
Pepsi is having less liabilities than cocacola.for the year 2006 it is of
7792000(in thousand) than it increase in 2007 to 8285000 because of
increase in the deffered long term liabilitesand interest.than it again reduces
to 759000 in 2008 this year company has reduced its deffered long term
iabilies.for the year 2009 company had paid the amount of 100667 under
title of other current liabilities.which has increased to the total liability for
pepsi.cocacola is having more liabilities than pepsi which is almost of 2
times than pepsi. for the year 2006 to 2008 the lianilities are
12685000,21525000,20047000 respectively. Of which 21525000 is the
highest even comparing with projected liability of the next five year.there
has been consistent stability has been seen in the projected liability of
cocacola .for the year 2009 it is of 18085607 it increases in the 2010 to
19885889 than there has not been much change in the liability of the year
2010 to 2013 as seen in the balance sheet above Comparing both companies
liabilities The ratio of the liabilities of the both companies ate of 6:4 in the year of 2006
than the ratio incease to 7:3 in year 2008 it remains 7;3.for the projected years the
ratio In 2009 the ratio is of 8:2 which tells how cocacola is having giant
liabilities than pepsi.

working capital helps the company to maintain the level of cash for the day
to day transactions. It helps to cycle of provide adequate cash for the
working of firm.Working capital, also known as net working capital or
NWC, is a financial metric which represents operating liquidity available to
a business. Along with fixed assets such as plant and equipment, working
capital is considered a part of operating capital. It is calculated as current
assets minus current liabilities. If current assets are less than current
liabilities, an entity has a working capital deficiency, also called a working
capital deficit.

Working Capital = Current Assets − Current Liabilities

A company can be endowed with assets and profitability but short of
liquidity if its assets cannot readily be converted into cash. Positive working
capital is required to ensure that a firm is able to continue its operations and
that it has sufficient funds to satisfy both maturing short-term debt and
upcoming operational expenses. The management of working capital
involves managing inventories, accounts receivable and payable and cash.

Operating activities

Operating activities include the production, sales and delivery of the company's
product as well as collecting payment from its customers. This could include
purchasing raw materials, building inventory, advertising, and shipping the product.

Under IAS 7, operating cash flows include:

      Receipts from the sale of goods or services
      Receipts for the sale of loans, debt or equity instruments in a trading portfolio
      Interest received on loans
      Dividends received on equity securities
      Payments to suppliers for goods and services
      Payments to employees or on behalf of employees
      Interest payments (alternatively, this can be reported under financing activities
       in IAS 7, and US GAAP)

Items which are added back to [or subtracted from, as appropriate the net income
figure (which is found on the Income Statement) to arrive at cash flows from
operations generally include:

      Depreciation (loss of tangible asset value over time)
      Deferred tax
      Amortization (loss of intangible asset value over time)
      Any gains or losses associated with the sale of a non-current asset, because
       associated cash flows do not belong in the operating section.(unrealized
       gains/losses are also added back from the income statement)

   914000 in 2007 but then again increased of cash flow from operating
   activities has been increased over year.

   handles its cash operations more effectively. pepsi’s operating activity cashflow for
   the year 2008 is 1284000.while the projected amount is much more higher than
   20008 and previous increases of 29445 than decreases in 2011 of

Financing activities:

Cocacola’s dividend distribution increases every 2007 cocacola has paid
8% more dividend than 2006.while pepsi has reatained earnings for all years.
Retain earning is increasing in the projected years.

Coca-Cola has paid uninterrupted dividends on its common stock since 1893 and
increased payments to common shareholders every year for 47 years. rom the end
of 1998 up until December 2009 this dividend growth stock has delivered a egative
annual average total return of 2.10% to its shareholders. The stock has largely
raded between $65 and $40 over the past decade.


The company has managed to deliver a 10.90% average annual increase in its EPS
between 1999 and 2009. Analysts are expecting an increase in EPS to $3.05-$3.10 for
2010 and $3.25-$3.30 by 2011. This would be a nice increase from the 2009 earnings
per share of $2.49. Future drivers for earnings could be the company’s tea, coffee and
water perations. Cost savings initiatives could also add to the bottom line over time.

Some analysts believe that Coca Cola could follow arch rival Pepsi Co’s moves to
acquire its own bottlers in an effort to gain more control over the production and

distribution of its beverages in key markets. Coke holds a 35% interest in its largest
manufacturer and distributor of Coca Cola products, Coca-Cola Enterprises In. . Coca-
ola Enterprises Inc. accounts for about 40% of Coke’s concentrate sales and 16% of
the company’s worldwide volume, which makes it a likely target of acquisition, The
Return on Equity has been in a decline after hitting a high in 2001. Rather than focus
on absolute values for this indicator, Investors generally want to see at least a stable
return on equity over time.

Annual dividends have increased by an average of 10.10% annually since 1999, which
is slightly lower than the growth in EPS. The company last raised its dividend by 8%
in February 2009, for the 47th year in a row.

A 10 % growth in dividends translates into the dividend payment doubling every
seven years. If we look at historical data, going as far back as 1969, The Coca Cola
Company has indeed managed to double its dividend payment every seven years on

The dividend payout ratio remained above 50% for the majority of the past decade. A
lower payout is always a plus, since it leaves room for consistent dividend growth
minimizing the impact of short-term fluctuations in earnings.

arch rival in the cola wars Pepsi Co trades at a P/E multiple of 15 and yields 3.50%.

Dividend stock analysis of pepsi

the end of 1998 up until December 2009 this dividend growth stock has delivered a
4.70% annual average total return to its shareholders.


At the same time company has managed to deliver a 9.90% average annual increase in

Annual dividend payments have increased by an average of 13.50% annually since
1999, which is much higher than the growth in EPS. Analysts are expecting slight
increase in EPS for 2009 compared to 2008; given the sluggish state of North
American economies. The strong US dollar could potentially hurt sales, as over 44%
of PepsiCo’s revenues are derived internationally.

A 13.50 % growth in dividends translates into the dividend payment doubling almost

every five years. Since 1978 PepsiCo has actually managed to double its dividend
payment every six years on average.

The dividend payout has remained in a range between 31% and 42%. In 2008 the
dividend payout ratio has surged to 51%. A lower payout is always a plus, since it
leaves room for consistent dividend growth minimizing the impact of short-term
fluctuations in earnings. The slow growth in earnings could put future dividend
increases at risk.

Opearintg profit :

For the year 2008 operating profit for the cocacola is more than pepsi.cocacola’s profit
is increasing every year but there has not been any major change in the profit of
pepsi.profit for cocacola in year 2008 is 8446 $ mill.pepsi’s profit in the same year is
6502.there has been defference of 7% in the profit of both companies.

Net income:

Cocacola is earning 165 mill $ more profit than pepsi which in % term 1.44 % more
than pepsi. We can say that pepsi is earning very good profit though the assets of the
pepsi is less than cocacola, pepsi is having almost similar profit.

              Weighted Average Cost of Capital

All the financial figures utilized in the weighted average cost of capital computation
were derived from the companies’ 10-K reports and from Yahoo Finance, unless
otherwise noted

Common Equity:
10-Year T-bond=6.27%
S&P 500 return=12%
PepsiCo beta =0.5
Coca-Cola beta=0.63

CAPM Equation: Rs=Rrf +(RPm)b

PepsiCo: Rs=6.27+(12-6.27)0.5

Coca-Cola: Rs=6.27+(12-6.27)0.63

Long-Term Debt:

debt: 4,203,000,000 = 3.5%
Common stock: 115,360,876,600 =96.5%
119,563,876,600 =100%

debt: 3,277,000,000 = 2.4%
Common stock: 135,513,142,200 =97.6%
138,790,142,200 =100%

PepsiCo WACC:
WdRd + WceRs
=.035(7.0%) + .965(9.135%)

Coca-Cola WACC:
WdRd + WceRs
= .024(7.1%) + .976(9.89)
= 9.87%

It’s important to note here that neither PepsiCo nor Coca-Cola issue preferred stock,
so that component was not utilized in the WACC computation. A surprising discovery
was the low tax rate for both of these corporations: 26% for PepsiCo and 22% for
Coca-Cola. This may be attributed to lower tax rates overseas, where these companies
derive a significant portion of their revenues from.
PepsiCo’s lower WACC (9.135%) versus Coca-Cola’s (9.89%) gives it greater
latitude in selecting investment projects. PepsiCo’s lower WACC will also result in
greater valuation for its stock. This has happened within the last 10 years: Its stock
price has climbed in value from $40.81 in 1998 to its most recent price of $68.20.
Coca-Cola, meanwhile, seems to have suffered a reversal of fortune in the same time
frame. Its stock price has declined from $78.38 to its most recent price of $58.72.
Conclusion and Recommendation
My research reveals that the strongest candidate as an investment opportunity is
PepsiCo. The WACC computation MAde the choice easier. Nevertheless, Coca-Cola
is a strong performer and is poised for a comeback. PepsiCo cannot rest on its laurels,
if it neglects any aspect of its core business it is bound to be overtaken by its eternal

                                  Ratio analysis
Financial Ratios

Financial ratios are useful indicators of a firm's performance and financial situation. Most
ratios can be calculated from information provided by the financial statements. Financial
ratios can be used to analyze trends and to compare the firm's financials to those of other
firms. In some cases, ratio analysis can predict future bankruptcy.

Financial ratios can be classified according to the information they provide. The
following types of ratios frequently are used:

       Liquidity ratios
       Asset turnover ratios
       Financial leverage ratios
       Profitability ratios
       Dividend policy ratios

Liquidity Ratios
Liquidity ratios provide information about a firm's ability to meet its short-term financial
obligations. They are of particular interest to those extending short-term credit to the
firm. Two frequently-used liquidity ratios are the current ratio (or working capital ratio)
and the quick ratio.

The current ratio is the ratio of current assets to current liabilities:

                                                 Current Assets
                            Current Ratio =
                                                 Current Liabilities

Short-term creditors prefer a high current ratio since it reduces their risk. Shareholders
may prefer a lower current ratio so that more of the firm's assets are working to grow the
business. Typical values for the current ratio vary by firm and industry. For example,
firms in cyclical industries may maintain a higher current ratio in order to remain solvent
during downturns.

One drawback of the current ratio is that inventory may include many items that are
difficult to liquidate quickly and that have uncertain liquidation values. The quick ratio is
an alternative measure of liquidity that does not include inventory in the current assets.
The quick ratio is defined as follows:

                                          Current Assets - Inventory
                        Quick Ratio =
                                          Current Liabilities

The current assets used in the quick ratio are cash, accounts receivable, and notes
receivable. These assets essentially are current assets less inventory. The quick ratio often
is referred to as the acid test.

Finally, the cash ratio is the most conservative liquidity ratio. It excludes all current
assets except the most liquid: cash and cash equivalents. The cash ratio is defined as

                                      Cash + Marketable Securities
                     Cash Ratio =
                                      Current Liabilities

The cash ratio is an indication of the firm's ability to pay off its current liabilities if for
some reason immediate payment were demanded.

Asset Turnover Ratios
Asset turnover ratios indicate of how efficiently the firm utilizes its assets. They
sometimes are referred to as efficiency ratios, asset utilization ratios, or asset
management ratios. Two commonly used asset turnover ratios are receivables turnover
and inventory turnover.

Receivables turnover is an indication of how quickly the firm collects its accounts
receivables and is defined as follows:

                                                  Annual Credit Sales
                    Receivables Turnover =
                                                  Accounts Receivable

The receivables turnover often is reported in terms of the number of days that credit sales
remain in accounts receivable before they are collected. This number is known as the
collection period. It is the accounts receivable balance divided by the average daily credit
sales, calculated as follows:

                                                  Accounts Receivable
                Average Collection Period         Annual Credit Sales / 365

The collection period also can be written as:

                  Average Collection Period =
                                                   Receivables Turnover

Another major asset turnover ratio is inventory turnover. It is the cost of goods sold in a
time period divided by the average inventory level during that period:

                                                Cost of Goods Sold
                      Inventory Turnover =
                                                Average Inventory

The inventory turnover often is reported as the inventory period, which is the number of
days worth of inventory on hand, calculated by dividing the inventory by the average
daily cost of goods sold:

                                        Average Inventory
                 Inventory Period =
                                        Annual Cost of Goods Sold / 365

The inventory period also can be written as:

                        Inventory Period =
                                                Inventory Turnover

Other asset turnover ratios include fixed asset turnover and total asset turnover.

Financial Leverage Ratios
Financial leverage ratios provide an indication of the long-term solvency of the firm.
Unlike liquidity ratios that are concerned with short-term assets and liabilities, financial
leverage ratios measure the extent to which the firm is using long term debt.

The debt ratio is defined as total debt divided by total assets:

                                                Total Debt
                               Debt Ratio       Total Assets

The debt-to-equity ratio is total debt divided by total equity:

                                                     Total Debt
                         Debt-to-Equity Ratio =
                                                     Total Equity

Debt ratios depend on the classification of long-term leases and on the classification of
some items as long-term debt or equity.

The times interest earned ratio indicates how well the firm's earnings can cover the
interest payments on its debt. This ratio also is known as the interest coverage and is
calculated as follows:

                         Interest Coverage =
                                                 Interest Charges

where EBIT = Earnings Before Interest and Taxes

Profitability Ratios
Profitability ratios offer several different measures of the success of the firm at
generating profits.

The gross profit margin is a measure of the gross profit earned on sales. The gross profit
margin considers the firm's cost of goods sold, but does not include other costs. It is
defined as follows:

                                            Sales - Cost of Goods Sold
                 Gross Profit Margin =

Return on assets is a measure of how effectively the firm's assets are being used to
generate profits. It is defined as:

                                                    Net Income
                            Return on Assets =
                                                    Total Assets

Return on equity is the bottom line measure for the shareholders, measuring the profits
earned for each dollar invested in the firm's stock. Return on equity is defined as follows:

                                               Net Income
                        Return on Equity =
                                               Shareholder Equity

Dividend Policy Ratios
Dividend policy ratios provide insight into the dividend policy of the firm and the
prospects for future growth. Two commonly used ratios are the dividend yield and payout

The dividend yield is defined as follows:

                                              Dividends Per Share
                        Dividend Yield =
                                              Share Price

A high dividend yield does not necessarily translate into a high future rate of return. It is
important to consider the prospects for continuing and increasing the dividend in the
future. The dividend payout ratio is helpful in this regard, and is defined as follows:

                                            Dividends Per Share
                         Payout Ratio =
                                            Earnings Per Share

Use and Limitations of Financial Ratios
Attention should be given to the following issues when using financial ratios:

      A reference point is needed. To to be meaningful, most ratios must be compared
       to historical values of the same firm, the firm's forecasts, or ratios of similar firms.
      Most ratios by themselves are not highly meaningful. They should be viewed as
       indicators, with several of them combined to paint a picture of the firm's situation.
      Year-end values may not be representative. Certain account balances that are used
       to calculate ratios may increase or decrease at the end of the accounting period
       because of seasonal factors. Such changes may distort the value of the ratio.
       Average values should be used when they are available.

Ratios are subject to the limitations of accounting methods. Different accounting choices
may result in significantly different ratio value

Ratio Analysis

To illustrate efficiency as a good investment choice, we will use data from
the annual reports of PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, for the fiscal year 2008, in order
to form comparative ratios. To realize the values of the ratios, it is necessary
to compare them with benchmark values. One benchmark consists of similar
firms in the same industry.


Liquidity refers to a company's ability to meet its requirements for cash.
Liquidity is necessary to meet both expected and unexpected cash demands.
All businesses need liquidity to operate. Inadequate liquidity can stunt
growth and ultimately lead to bankruptcy if debts cannot be repaid.
However, too much liquidity can detract from profits because liquid assets
are low returning investments. The standard measure of liquidity is the
current ratio, calculated by dividing "current assets" by "current liabilities”.
The current ratio for PepsiCo of 1.1 indicates it is the more liquid of coke,
and also performing better than the beverage industry with a 1.00 figure. The
ratios for Coca-Coca is close to 1.00. However, this is not the norm for high
quality company with easy access to capital markets to finance unexpected
cash requirements.

                    Pepsi                Cocacola            industry

Two common measures of profitability are the net profit margin and the
return on assets ratios. Each provides a different perspective about the firm's
profits. To measure the profitability of a company's operations, you calculate
the net profit margin (NPM) by dividing "net income" with "sales”. Both
entries come from the income statement. Net profit margin indicates the
percentage of each dollar of sales that the firm is able to flow to the bottom
line as profit. NPM is a function of the price of the product (which produces
sales revenue) and efficiency of operations (cost of goods sold). A firm
selling a unique product to a captive market may be able to charge a

premium price and thus generate greater NPM. Conversely, a firm selling a
generic product in a highly competitive market will have a low NPM. It
must be a very efficient company, or it will not survive. The net profit
margins of our 2 sample firms illustrate these concepts. Coca-Cola’s NPM
of 8.8 percent is low compared with PepsiCo’s NPM of 16.6 percent.This is
due primarily to its proprietary product and monopolies in certain foreign
markets. PepsiCo derives the majority of its income from lower margin
snack foods and restaurants. Less than half its sales come from soft drinks.

The Return on Assets ratio (ROA), which is also known as the Return on
Investment ratio, is calculated by dividing "net profit" by "total assets”. It
indicates the rate of return provided by the book value of the company's
assets. The higher the ROA, the more profitable the company is. Consistent
with the NPM, PepsiCo has the highest ROA with 15.81 percent, making
Coca-Cola's 14.46 percent second. This reflects PepsiCo’s ability to generate
significant sales volume from its asset base.

Total Asset Turnover Ratio:

Another indicator of a company's ability to generate profits is the total asset
turnover ratio, calculated by dividing "sales" by "total assets”. It indicates
how effectively the company generates sales from its asset base. The more
effective the company is in generating sales revenue, the higher the asset
turnover ratio will be. However, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola's ratios are, 2.00
and 1.81 respectively. these are driven primarily by their high inventory
turnover, and efficient use of fixed assets. Thus, coke’s low NPM is offset
to some extent by its ability to generate sales from its asset base (the
company is a high volume, low overhead

Inventory Turnover Ratio:

For companies that have a large investment in inventory, it is useful to
calculate the Inventory turnover ratio, which is the "cost of goods sold" from
the income statement divided by the "inventory" shown on the balance sheet.
A low turnover ratio indicates too much investment in inventory. Whereas a
high turnover ratio could cause lost sales due to lack of merchandise to meet
customer demand. PepsiCo's is higher,This reflects differences in their
distribution methods, with Pepsi's snack foods driving the ratio higher than
for typical merchandisers.

Financial Leverage:

Financial leverage is the use of fixed cost funds such as debt or preferred
stock to increase the common stockholder's return. Using debt in the firm
produces a stream of earnings that has greater volatility (risk) than would
occur in the same firm if it had less debt. One major factor is management's
willingness to accept financial risk. A second factor is earnings
predictability. Two debt ratios that were computed are the debt to total assets
ratio, or the "debt ratio," and the equity multiplier.

Debt Ratio:

The Debt ratio is calculated as the sum of all the liability accounts divided
by "total assets." For our four sample firms, the numerator is the sum of
everything on the right side of the balance sheet from "current liabilities"
through "deferred income taxes”.
As you can see for our firms, their debt ratios vary from PepsiCo’s 71.2
percent. We can conclude that Pepsi is using more financial leverage in the
firm and thus is exposed to more financial risk than cocacola.

                    Pepsi               Cocacola            Industry
Debt ratio          71.2                64.2                52
Equity multiplier   1.87                1.62                1.55

The Equity multiplier is a similar calculation, determined by dividing "total
assets" by the
"common equity" account. If a firm is totally financed by equity, the equity
multiplier will equal 1.00. The larger the number, the more highly leveraged
is the firm. Consistent with the "debt ratio," the equity multipliers of the 2
firms display that Pepsi has the greatest amount of leverage, and cocacola
has lower.

Return on Equity:

Many would argue that the most important ratio to calculate for a company
is its return on equity (ROE), which is "net income available to common
stockholders" divided by "common equity”. ROE represents the rate of
return the company earned on the book value of its equity investment. The
higher the number, the greater the return the company
is earning for its shareholders. For our companies, PepsiCo has the greatest
ROE, 39.84 percent, which is an exceptionally high number. Coca-Cola’s is
28.73 percent. Both are relatively high compared with industry, which is
extremely low compared to the industry’s 28.69% consensus.

                    Pepsi               Cocacola            Industry
Return on equity    39.84               28.73               28.69

PepsiCo has an excellent ROE. It is a result of its high profit margin,
effective asset utilization, and use of leverage. PepsiCo probably is pursuing
an aggressive debt strategy
because of the lower profitability of some of its product lines.

Price/Earnings Ratio:

The Price/ Earnings Ratio is used to gauge the relative value of a security in
the light of current market conditions. It is determined by dividing the price
of a share of stock by its earnings per share for a 12-month period.
Sometimes the P/E is referred to as the "multiple” because it shows how
much investors are willing to pay per dollar of earnings. PepsiCo has a high
P/E, which means high projected earnings in the future, in comparison to its
competitors in the beverage industry.

Price/Cash Flow:

The Price/ Cash Flow is calculated by dividing the closing price with the
cash flow per share from the last 12 months. An alternative to the P/E ratio,
this ratio removes depreciation and other non-cash charges from the
equation. Another advantage of the Price/Cash Flow ratio is that it makes it
easier to analyze various companies across the board. As displayed above,
Coca-Cola has the most efficient Price/Cash Flow ratio than PepsiCo’s 17.28
ratio, which displays that three of the four companies have ample money
available to spend on research and development, to expand operations, and
to pay dividends to investors.

Gross Profit Margin Ratio:

The Gross Profit Margin ratio indicates how efficiently a business is using
its materials and labor in the production process. In other words, gross
margin is equal to gross income divided by net sales, and is expressed as a
percentage. Coca- Cola and PepsiCo have the highest gross profit margin
values of 63.68 and 53.67. Both are outperforming the industry, which
indicates that the companies can make a reasonable profit on sales, as
long as it keeps overhead costs in control.

Total Debt-Equity Ratio:

Total debt-equity ratio is the ratio of a company's long-term liabilities to its
equity. cocacola has the higher level of debt, making it very important for
the company to have positive earnings and steady cash flow. Debt in and of
itself is not harmful, but it does require the timely payout of interest to debt
holders. PepsiCo has the chances of defaulting on debt.

Earnings per Share:

Earnings per share is the proportionate amount of a company's profit, or
earnings, for each outstanding share of common stock. It is calculated as net
income minus dividends divided by average outstanding shares. This is the
single most popular variable in dictating a share's price. EPS indicates the
profitability of a company. PepsiCo, Coca- Cola are outperforming the
industry average of 1.52.

Return on Sales:

This ratio is a measure of profitability expressed as a percent of sales. It is
the usual definition of percent profit. The calculation is net income divided
by net sales. It can help you determine if you are making enough of a return
on your sales effort. If your company is experiencing a cash flow crunch, it
could be because its mark-up is not enough to cover expenses. Return on
sales can help point this out, and allow you to adjust prices for an adequate
profit. Also, be sure to look for trends in this figure. If it appears to be
dropping over time, it could be a signal that you will soon be experiencing
financial problems. Coca-Cola has the highest Return on Sales ratio, 20.32,
detecting operational efficiency, accompanied by PepsiCo’s 13.19 ratio.

Pepsi Co.:

   -   current ratio is high – short-term solvency is favorable
   -   greater volatility in ratios
   -   greatly reduces D/E ratio
   -   increases TIE ratio – solvency
   -   shorter days sales of inventory period – better inventory management
   -   increases slightly asset turnover
   -   capital intensity increases – better capital utilization to realize sales
   -   profit margin increases significantly
   -   both ROA and ROE increase significantly and even exceed those of
       Coca Cola Co.

Coca Cola Co.:
  - current ratio is slightly increasing, under that of Pepsi Co.
  - low volatility in ratios
  - stable Debt ratios
  - decreases TIE ratio – lowers ability to cover interest expenses
  - significantly high inventory turnover – not as good inventory
     management as Pepsi Co.
  - improvement in asset turnover
  - capital intensity increases slightly
  - profit margin decreases sharply
  - both ROA and ROE decrease greatly, starting around 1998 and reach
     a stage below those of Pepsi Co.

In conclusion, the ratios of Pepsi Co. significantly improve and lose their
worrisome volatility with time. They reach levels as high, if not higher, than
those of their main competitor, Coca Cola Co. These changes are evidence
for the stable positioning of Pepsi Co. and their increase in market share
compared to that of Coca Cola Co. Therefore, the comparative ratio analysis
of the two competing companies supports the conclusion that Pepsi Co. is
doing better within its internal operations and market penetration. Thus,
Pepsi Co. would be the more profitable investment
