I would like to see a 2 for 1 split and that would make a lot of people happy and bring the price down to where others would jump in.
Coke split long ago and at a cheaper price and is now back over $40.00 a share. I am sure this is what would happen to PEP and a lot of new money would drive it back up to a higher level.
The board could raise the dividend and do a 2 for 1 split, more investors would be able to afford Pepsi with a lower price and be able to buy more shares. Then we could watch the stock price go back up.
You give out a $1.00 per hour and now multiply this times 30 hours, this equals to $30.00 and you have 20 employees that is now $600.00 per week and how many extra burgers, fries or soda do you have to sell to make up for that extra expense of owning a company and trying to maintain a bottom line??
Why is this a sounding board that has nothing to do with GE and what it is doing to raise the value of this stock??? Keep focusing on how to improve this company and leave all the other garbage to your local newspaper!!!
With the many comments on how well PEP is doing and the forecast all being positive why doesn't this split and now we all could enjoy the ride upward with more shares in our portfolio's.
With the stock up as high as it is and a dividend at 3.6% this is the time to get younger shareholders on board with a lower price so they can get a fair amount of shares with a good return. I believe this stock will then jump up again.
Ii like the signage and letting people know that they are a community involved business. Think of the various Ronald MacDonald's houses and the million's of dollars that are given back to the communities world wide and then try and tell me it is not a company that puts a lot of thought in what they are doing in helping others.
CEO's and top executive's should be paid on results and not the maybe's they say they can do. Then cut their salaries if they don't produce. I think it was Warren Buffett that told one company to do this and they followed his recommendation.
