What are analysts saying about PepsiCo stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PepsiCo stock:

  • 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We continue to recommend PEP following solid 4Q results. Despite the difficult global macro, the co. delivered 4% org sales and 12% core FX neutral EPS growth in FY16, which places it toward the higher end of CPG peers. Margins, FCF conversion, and ROIC all continue to improve, and PEP's initial FY17 EPS guide looks conservative (we see up to 4 pts of upside). At 19x EV/ULFCF, we see scope to re-rate vs. KO/MDLZ avg. of 25x' Solid 4Q, FY17 guide looks conservative: PEP's $1.20 in 4Q EPS came in $0.04 ahead of Street est. on in-line topline (3.7% org sales vs. Street 3.8%) and -80 bps of GM % contraction, offset by better SG&A (40.5% vs. Street 41.7%)." (2/16/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PepsiCo shares have outperformed the broader industry in the last one year. The company has been doing well on the back of significant innovation, continued momentum in Frito-Lay business, revenue management strategies, improved productivity and better market execution. Again, it has been seeing higher volumes and profits in the North American segments due to an improving economy, better industry pricing dynamics and a consistency in positive innovation. Pepsi’ new product lineup, aggressive marketing efforts, productivity improvement and cost-saving initiatives should drive profits. That said, growing health awareness has been hurting the CSD category, resulting in a 3% volume decline in the first three quarters of 2016. Again, rising volatility in global markets and increasing currency headwind may dampen growth, going forward." (1/6/2017)
