    PepsiCo stock falls to extend weekly slide after analyst downgrade

    Shares of PepsiCo Inc. fell 1% in premarket trade Friday, extending losses seen since the beverage and snack company reported results earlier this week, after Macquarie Research downgraded the company, saying revenue growth is becoming more expensive. Analyst Caroline Levy cut her rating to neutral from outperform, and slashed her stock price target to $107, which is just 0.4% above Thursday's stock closing price, from $122. Although the Pepsi and Frito Lay parent reported early Tuesday fiscal third-quarter sales that rose above expectations, Levy noted margin fell on more brand spending, currency-driven increases in input costs abroad and higher freight costs. "Organic sales growth will require more investment," Levy wrote in a note to clients, and "we believe these pressures will remain a drag on margins." The stock has shed 4.6% amid a four-session losing streak, including a 3.7% decline the past three sessions despite the earnings and sales beat. Meanwhile, the SPDR Consumer Staples Select Sector ETF has slipped 0.8% the past four sessions and the S&P 500 has eased 0.4%.
