A Few Ways to Invest in Pepsi

Earlier this year, I wrote an article about the seven different Coca Cola stocks. There are also more than one Pepsi Cola stocks, all of which pay a dividend.

Pepsico, Inc. (PEP) the $121 billion (market cap) company that is considered the primary Pepsi company. In addition to manufacturing and marketing beverage concentrates and syrups, they also have the Frito-Lay division which makes and markets snacks, the Quaker Foods North America division which distributes cereals and pasta, and the PepsiCo International division, which sells snacks and beverages. The stock has a P/E of 20.2 , a PEG of 2.03 , and a yield of 2% .

Pepsi Bottling Group Inc. (PBG) this Somers, New York based company distributes various Pepsi-Cola beverages including Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Lime, Mountain Dew, Sierra Mist, Aquafina, Tropicana, Mug Root Beer, Lipton, SoBe, Starbucks Frappuccino, Dole, 7UP, KAS, Aqua Minerale, Mirinda, Manzanita Sol, Dr Pepper, Squirt, Electropura, e-pura, and Garci Crespo. The stock has a P/E of 16.8 , a PEG of 1.85 , and a yield of 1.40% .

PepsiAmericas Inc. (PAS) this Minneapolis based company makes and distributes Pepsi beverage products in the United States, central Europe, and the Caribbean. The stock has a P/E of 21 , a PEG of 1.59 , and a yield of 1.60% .
