In the right space. This is the period that consumers’ staples start to do well. Chart shows a nice upward trend. You could add more if it gets down to $63-$64.

Pepsi (PEP-N) or Coke (KO-N)? Pepsi has better growth metrics going forward in the range of 10%-12% in earnings and cash flow versus 9%-10% with Coke. Less dependent on carbonated drinks. Has a food business in Frito Lay. Also trades at a lower multiple.

Breaking out right now but he wouldn’t have high expectations. Not a growth stock. Recent breakout is very positive that it is breaking into a new high. Could go up another $3.

Pepsi (PEP-N) versus Coca Cola (KO-N)? Both have similar growth rates. Coke trades at about 17.5X earnings while Pepsi trades at about 14.5X earnings. At a 3 point multiple Pepsi would be his choice. Pepsi is a smaller player but more diversified with their Frito Lay division.

Likes the emerging market exposure. International earnings are good when the US$ is coming down. Have commodity exposure to sugar, corn and aluminum but likes the growth in that are. Prefers Pepsi (PEP-N). (See Top Picks.)

Strongly doubts it will be the strongest stock in the US in the next 5 years. It could be a good stock, given the dividend, but he things there are far better investments out there.

The negative is that sugar prices are at an all time high. More and more sales are coming from out of North America. If the US$ drops, earnings could go up.

Has done a great job. Good volume growth is coming from the BRIC countries. You are paying a higher multiple than with Pepsi (PEP-N) but you are getting good growth..

Just-released good earnings numbers. Good international story with lots of growth in Asia and Latin America. Really benefiting from the low US$. Good dividend. Expects Cdn$ will go higher so he is not buying a lot of foreign stocks right now. Low growth.

Coca-Cola. Growth is in their non-carbonated drinks. Prominently international and derive most of their revenue/earnings from overseas. A good play on the weak US$. 2.9% dividend.

Great company. One of the biggest international and most recognized brand names. Challenge has been to diversify their breakdown of assets from carbonated soft drinks into other beverages. Globally starting to get into water, teas and sports drinks, which are starting to show growth. Commodity prices will be declining, which should help them on the margins. 3.5% yield is safe.
