PepsiCo Stock has been in and out of my portfolio for more than 25 years. PepsiCo Stock symbol is PEP. PepsiCo is a profitable Nonalcoholic Beverages company on the New York Stock Exchange. It has a global bevcerage, snack and food brand that is widely known and bought. It is a non-cyclical company which means that it realy does not have a period each year when earnings drop off. The company is in 200 countries and every continent. PepsiCo Stock has paid a dividend since 1952 and increased it annually for over 39 years. Book value in January 2012 was $13.16 and cash flow was $5.85 a share. Price to earnings was 16 times which is reasonable and gross margin was 52.59% and profit margin 9.72%. The annual dividend is $2.06 which as of Jan 2012 was 3.2%. PepsiCo is a great company and I have enjoyed substantial profits with PepsiCo Stock over many years. To learn more about this terrific company select this PepsiCo Stock link to visit PepsiCo Investor Relations.  The investment strategy remains the same as the last 3 years, put selling. Through using support and resistance charting I sell puts at points of where I believe there is support in Pepsico Stock when the stock pulls back near those points. If assigned shares I plan to sell covered calls until exercised out of shares and then repeat the process. A lot of investors prefer more volatile stocks than PepsiCo stock for put selling. However I prefer stocks like PepsiCo stock as they tend to not have as many whipsaws and stay within a more defineable range. It is this range that I like to sell puts and covered calls against.

Comments Rather than rolling the Nov $70 puts I decided to be assigned the 300 shares and I added another 500 shares through this purchase. I think PepsiCo is fairly valued at $70 to $65 and definitely undervalued below $65
