Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Analysts such as Jim Cramer would buy Pepsi stock now as the number of Covid cases could rise as the weather turns colder and more people stay at home to snack. Analysts expects its EPS to reach $1.50, which would return to last year’s levels. Pepsi pays a dividend just under 3%. The trailing PE has ballooned from 15.62x last December to the current 26.85x, which will give some investors pause.

Stochchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We are encouraged by the rebound in PEP stock recently. As we head into the next round of the pandemic, with more people at home for the holidays, we should expect sales to continue to recover. Analysts are calling for EPS of $1.47-$1.52, which would put it on track with last year's levels. We would look to buy on an opportunistic pullback to $135. Yield 2.95% (Analysts’ price target is $146.59)

An excellent company with great growth as a packaged food play. Has a tremendous balance sheet. It's pulled back 11% from its highs and now pays a 3% yield. It's a snacking company and snacking is big during this pandemic.

Instead of holding utilities and telecoms? He hasn't drilled into their current earnings, but their valuation is extended and current restaurant (semi-) closures will impact Pepsi. Don't chase consumer products. Stick to utilities and telecoms because of good yields and valuations. Internet traffic has surged. The recovery won't happen as quickly as some think.

It gives him some stability and safety in portfolios. About 3% yield and it is growing. You are buying a lot of their products in going to grocery stores and drug stores. It is a snack and beverage company. It is less exposed to the syrup business like pop in movie theatres and stadiums. You get a higher multiple and lower volatility. (Analysts’ price target is $143.11)

CO-N vs. PEP-Q. They are both consumer stables and he likes them because they are falling off maybe 20% from their high. He is more a Coke guy and it is close to EBV+7 at $39 and closed at $42.81. Close to $38-9 he would be a buyer, maybe even at this price. You can do one or the other and still be okay.

Very well-managed. They're not a straight beverage company like Coke. Pepsi has Frito-Lay, which is not healthy, but amounts to 50% of the company's profits. Pepsi has marketed F-L well. Pepsi is defensive and has sold off less than the current pullback.

Not enough growth here and he barely invests in consumer staples. A well-run company though. If you want dividend growth, look at the banks or utilities instead.

Has been struggling. Their core product was carbonated soft drinks, for which demand has been shrinking. They have diversified away from that. Over 50% of their revenues now come from other types of products. However, he prefers Coke to Pepsi. Coke and Pepsi have similar yield.

There is a lot of pressure on carbonated beverages. It’s shrinking year-over-year. This has transitioned away better than Coca-Cola (KO-N) has. More than 50% of revenues comes from non-carbonated beverages. They have over 20 brands that generate over $1 billion a year. He would consider this if it were cheaper. Trading at over 20X Price to Earnings.

(Market Call Minute.) A well-managed company. About half their business comes from Frito-Lay salty snacks. This is one you might want to look at after the yield curve inverts.

The PepsiCo (PEP-N) Coca-Cola (KO-N) Rivalry never seems to end. Of the 2, he would prefer PepsiCo, but doesn't own either. It has done a better job of diversifying away from the reliance on carbonated soft drinks. Today, more than 50% of their revenues come from noncarbonated drinks. There is still a lot of uncertainty as to what this kind of business looks like 5 years from now. He would not be a buyer at this time.
