On CAPS, 97% of the 4,549 members who have rated PepsiCo believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, cschweit, tapped PepsiCo as a particularly tasty opportunity:

It's got options. Not as in stock options, but rather business options. This company has many choices to make in the coming years. These decisions: buy/don't buy Mondelez International, spin off the beverage group, sell the beverage group, any combination of these and others. It will be interesting what will happen, but I think this company is a strong one that will continue to grow.

PepsiCo has quenched consumers' thirst for more than a century. But recently the company has left shareholders craving more. With increased competition and loss of market share, many investors wonder if this global snack food and beverage giant is simply fizzling out. Are more bland results ahead for PepsiCo?
