What are Wall Street analysts saying about PepsiCo stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PepsiCo stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PepsiCo has been doing well on the back of significant innovation, continued momentum in Frito-Lay business, revenue management strategies, improved productivity and cost-saving initiatives, along with better market execution. Moreover, an improving economy, better industry pricing dynamics and a consistency in positive innovation bode well. It rolled out several products recently which management believes will drive sales and profits in 2017. That said, growing health awareness has been hurting the CSD category, resulting in a 4% volume decline in the first nine months of 2017 in North America. Again, rising volatility in global markets and increasing currency headwinds may dampen growth. Meanwhile, PepsiCo’s shares have gained 14.6% in the last one year, underperforming the industry’s growth of 14.9%." (1/4/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "greater innovation," Grundy commented in his downgrade note. In fact, PepsiCo is losing market share in approximately 85 percent of its beverage portfolio which also compromises a "key tenet" in holding a bullish stance.Meanwhile, PepsiCo's once-strong food division also faces pressure from grocery store weakness trends,, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN)'s growing presence in the food sector, along with "less M&A froth" to support the valuation.On top of that, a bullish stance on PepsiCo's stock was derived from management's productivity savings initiative through 2019 that would drive upside to Wall Street's estimates, the analyst added. But input cost inflation has returned which implies there is "less scope" for operating margin upside — especially at a time when the company needs to reinvest money in the North American market where it has a higher degree of exposure versus its peers.Bottom line, while PepsiCo boasts a great portfolio of brands the fact is the industry has slowed down as of late and will remain extremely competitive moving forward. As such, a "less constructive" (10/2/2017)
  • 3. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "total beverage company" portfolio with product lines ranging from carbonated drinks to juices and Gatorade, Grandet commented in the downgrade note. While this did help to boost PepsiCo's stock higher of the year, including an 11 percent gain over the past year, the stock's risk to reward profile is now balanced.PepsiCo's total U.S. beverage retail sales trends "deteriorated significantly" since the start of 2017. While many investors assume that this could be attributed towards a trend in healthier consumer habits at the expense of carbonated drinks, the fact is the company's non-carbonated beverage portfolio is in decline. In fact, the NBC's weakness is no longer able to compensate for the greater weakness in the carbonated category.On top of that, PepsiCo's snack and food division was historically called on to compensate for weakness in the beverage business, the analyst continued. However, it is now a "stretch" to assume that Frito-Lay and other snack categories will "over-earn for an extended period of time." (9/8/2017)
