Q: What is the potential for them in India? A: They have been in that market for some time already, so you are not going to see additional marginal growth. There are better ways to get exposure on a China/India play.

Both Coca-Cola (KO-N) and Pepsi (PEP-N) are trading roughly at the same valuation. Coke has a lot of work to do. Pepsi has better momentum. A big part of their business is the snack food business. On the beverage side they have a better assortment of sports drinks and water franchise. Would Buy Pepsi over Coke at this point.

Great brand internationally. However, growth is almost nonexistant. Missed on the power drinks, water, etc. People are not drinking as many soft drinks as before. Would buy Pepsi (PEP-N) instead.

Hasn't been an outstanding performer, but hasn't been horrific either. Check shareholder and dividend yield. If they're high, you've got a name brand, one of the bluest of blue chip stocks.

Stumbling badly. Try to get a new CEO. Model price has been deteriorating and is now $33. Earnings have been dropping. Top line growth is very tough for them.

A quality company. Trades at 22 X cash flow/26 X earnings, which is not cheap, but historically low for them. 75% of profits are international, so weaker US dollar is not a problem. Buy in the low $40's or high $30's for a long term hold.
