The valuation still looks compelling with Pepsi with an EV / EBITDA premium of just around 3% on CY23 compared to its lower growth food peers, ”noted Dara Mohsenian, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley.
“We are increasingly confident in a sustained recovery in PepsiCo’s long-term organic sales growth (PEP), driven by favorable strategic changes under the leadership of a relatively new CEO (Ramon Laguarta), including a greater reinvestment in the business in marketing / cap-ex, PEP mix moves to the higher growth / higher margin snack category (accounting for around 2/3 of PEP profits), as well as the ‘Beverage revenue trends improved after COVID, driven by category rebound and PEP market share performance improvement sequentially.
