Pepsi whose stock is in a free fall has come to the realization that they can't compete with KO in the U.S. and especially international basis. It order to stop the stocks free fall it actually showed its cards on how badly they are doing. From the market reaction today analyst were more upset with pepsi' admiting that they were getting their butt kicked (down 1 1/8) then from fear of the anti-trust for KO (down only a 1/4) and thats with the market down 78 points. For anyone who has read my previous long list of messages, one will note what a wonderful job KO is doing. If one wants to cry just read the depressed state of the Pepsi Shareholders on the PEP board. Over the next weeks you will get dozens of messages on this board from sharks trying to get you to panic and sell your shares. I just want you to know that if you do sell you will just be giving your money to those idiots. I have a firm rule on selling: "When Buffett Sells , Then I'll sell" . Pepsi is in a bad state of affairs. They have $4.5 Billion in cash and their management is to stupid to buy back any stock. They should have followed KO's formula and sell their bottlers. Are they doing that NO!!!!!!!!! This is a last desperate measure for PEPSI similiar to the Germans at the End of World War II when they drafted children to fight the Allies. I believe the same result will happen to Pepsi as happened to the Nazis. If the lawsuit does get more attention then it deserves, it will take ten years to resolve. By that time the Genius Ivestor will have it solved and your stock will be worth $400 a share.
SO JUST KEEP THE FAITH FOR THE LONG TERM AND YOU WILL BE WELL REWARDED!!!!!!!!!!
