Coca-Cola (KO) and Pepsi (PEP) have been battling it out for decades to see who is the number one soft drink in the world. Let's see how they both look to investors. KO is a member of an elite dividend group called the Dividend Kings, a small group of companies that have increased their payouts to share holders for over 50 years. KO has an average trading volume of 16 million shares and has been in business for over 100 years. Although the stock price is $42.71 they do boast a 2.9% yield for their dividend. The market cap for KO is $187 Billion and a gross profit of $28 Billion.
Pepsi has been on the heels of Coca-Cola for decades and this is how they match up. PEP's stock price is $97.16 and they have a dividend yield of 2.7%. The market cap for PEP is $145 Billion and gross profit of $35 Billion. Although PEP is not a Dividend King, they are closing the gap very quickly. PEP has been increasing dividend payouts to shareholders for 41 years.
Let's break it down by the numbers.... stock price is irrelevant when it comes investing for monthly cash flow. ROI or return on investment is what we are looking for:
KO has higher return 2.9% v 2.7%
KO has larger market cap $187B v $145B
KO has higher daily stock trading volume 16M v 4M
PEP has higher gross profit $35B v $28B
PEP has a higher book value $15 v $5.5
KO book value is higher compared to stock price 17.8% v 15.8%
According to the numbers.... KO is the better value when it comes down to it. Sorry PEP.

Just out of high school I decided to be self employed, after running a successful manufacturing business I had a problem of making more money than I knew what to do with. I started investing, after 23 years of investing I now want to share my strategy with a select few that want an extra edge in their own investing.
