    MARKET TALK: Piercing The Enigmatic Realm...Of Carbonated Drinks
    Last update: 5/6/2011 10:10:16 AM
    10:10 (Dow Jones) Credit Suisse raises PepsiCo (PEP) to outperform from neutral, lifts price target to $85 from $69. New target tied for the Street's tallest, according FactSet. CS calls PEP an "untold beverage journey," which appears to mean the company's North American drinks business on pace for improvement and nutritional brands, along with Frito's, look ripe for long-term growth. Firm divines these nuggets after "extensive and rare" interviews with PEP management, in which the analysts received "a candid vision of the recovery path, cultural change and journey ahead." They say if more people had access to PepsiCo Americas Beverages CEO Massimo d'Amore's plans, shares would be higher. PEP gains 1% to $69.52. (christopher.dieterich@dowjones.com)

    • MARKET TALK: Goldman Sees Strong Returns Coming From Pepsi
      Last update: 5/9/2011 7:57:20 AM
      7:57 (Dow Jones) Goldman Sachs adds Pepsi (PEP) to its "conviction buy" list (from buy) and keeps its $83 price target. The move comes as Goldman cuts nutritional-product maker Mead Johnson (MJN) to neutral from conviction buy amid a 37% advance the past year. Goldman says PEP's North American beverage business is likely to stabilize thanks to non-soda products. It sees 23% "total return potential" for the stock on the back of 10% yearly EPS growth and a 3% dividend yield. Plus, PEP's valuation looks refreshing compared to rival Coke (KO). Goldman's upgrade on PEP, which climbs 1% premarket to $69.95, comes after a Credit Suisse increase to outperform on Friday. (christopher.dieterich@dowjones.com)

      • Coca-Cola, PepsiCo Settle Trademark Lawsuit Over Fruit-Juice Packaging
        By Don Jeffrey - May 6, 2011 9:42 AM CT

        Coca-Cola Co. (KO)’s trademark-infringement lawsuit over PepsiCo Inc.’s packaging of a new line of fruit juices was dismissed by a judge after the companies reached a settlement.

        U.S. District Judge Sim Lake signed an order dismissing the case after the companies submitted a joint motion seeking to terminate it, according to a filing yesterday in federal court in Houston.

        “All matters in dispute in this case have been fully and finally resolved by the parties,” lawyers for both sides said in court papers. Details of their agreement weren’t disclosed.

        Coca-Cola, based in Atlanta, sued in October claiming that the new packaging for PepsiCo’s low-calorie Trop50 brand of fruit juices would “likely deceive consumers and dilute the quality” of Coke’s brand of premium juices, called Simply.

        A trial had been set for June. Lake told lawyers for Coca- Cola and Purchase, New York-based PepsiCo in December that they should try to settle the dispute out of court to avoid the expense of trial.

        The case is Coca-Cola Co. v. PepsiCo Inc., 10-04184, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas (Houston.)
