Company Report

Snack and Beverage Innovation Continues to Fuel Growth at Wide-Moat PepsiCo

Following years of anemic growth due to operational missteps and underinvestments, management has worked to right PepsiCo’s ship, even amid covid-19-related disruptions and input cost inflation. But we think there is more room to go, as the firm benefits from secular tailwinds in the snack business, growth initiatives in select attractive beverage subcategories (such as energy drinks) and various emerging markets (Latin America, Africa, and Asia Pacific), and an integrated business model facilitating more effective commercialization.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Demographic and lifestyle shifts could further fuel snack consumption globally beyond our expectations.

Bears

Shifting consumer preference to healthier snacks and beverages may impede the firm’s ability to pass on higher costs in price increases thus weighing on margins and returns.
