    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%.

The IQOS sales deceleration appears to have made investors skeptical of its long-term potential. The stock price was also impacted by reduced-risk product competition and anti-tobacco regulations.

    What Do Biggest GICS Structure Changes Mean for ETF Investors?

    Since inception almost two decades ago, the Global Industry Classification System (GICS) has been the standard taxonomy employed by the financial community to sort business entities by sector and industry group. Changes to this taxonomy, no matter how small, can have a significant impact on how companies are classified and which enterprises are included in sector index and index products developed by Standard and Poor’s and MSCI. Understanding how these changes impact company and industry groupings is therefore critical for investors with exposure to ETFs. In January 2018, S&P Dow Jones Indices, a division of S&P Global, introduced several revisions to the GICS structure. These changes, which will be implemented after the close of business on Sept. 28, 2018, impact three specific sectors: Telecommunications Consumer discretionary Information technology The MSCI Equity Indexes will reflect these changes as part of its semi-annual index review in November 2018.
