    Overview *18-FEB-03

    Operating profits for the beverage segment are projected to rise 9%-10% in 2003, reflecting 7%-8% higher North American profits, a strong 14%-15% increase in Gatorade/Tropicana profits and a 4% to 5% increase for international beverages. Beverage profits should benefit from a favorable pricing environment. Snack food profits are expected to rise about 8%-9%, reflecting 4%-5% unit volume growth, a 1%-2% improvement in price/mix, and favorable raw material costs. The Quaker Foods business could see profits rise 5% to 6%, on modest volume growth and cost savings. The equity income line could increase 10%, primarily reflecting continued strong results at the Pepsi Bottling Group. Following lower interest expense, we expect operating EPS of $2.20 in 2003, and Standard & Poor's Core Earnings per share of $2.15. The difference reflects $0.03 of options expenses and $0.02 of pension costs.

    Valuation *18-FEB-03

    We continue our buy recommendation on the shares, reflecting our expectation for solid profit growth and growing free cash flows. With the August 2001 acquisition of Quaker Oats, we believe PEP is poised to consistently deliver 11%-12% annual EPS growth over the long term. This acquisition and the purchase of South Beach Beverage Co. provide the company with leading positions in several fast growing non-carbonated beverage categories. At a recent P/E multiple of 18X our 2003 EPS estimate, the shares are valued at a discount to comparable global consumer products companies, but at a modest premium to the S&P 500 Index. Despite this premium valuation, the shares are attractive given the company's promising longer-term prospects stemming from its large market positions in the growing worldwide packaged beverage and snack industries.

    Im ersten Quartal legte Pepsi vier Prozent auf einen Umsatz von 12,4 Milliarden Dollar (9,4 Mrd Euro) zu.. Der Konzern produziert auch Fruchtsäfte (Tropicana), Eistee (Lipton), Snacks (Lay's, Doritos) und Frühstücksflocken (Quaker Oats).
    Die gestiegenen Rohstoffpreise machen Pepsi zu schaffen. Durch höhere Preise hat das Unternehmen die gestiegenen Kosten an die Kunden weitergegeben. Um die Kosten zu senken hat Pepsi wie Coke große Abfüllbetriebe übernommen.
