Coca-Cola Vs. PepsiCo: Which Soda Maker Is Best for Your Portfolio?

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are both giants of the international beverage market, but each carries its own strengths and weaknesses. Coca-Cola brought in $46.9 billion in revenues last year, and with its new partnership with Keurig Green Mountain, Inc  is expected to expand the brand's presence even further. Given these strengths it's no surprise that the company has the confidence of world-famous investor Warren Buffett. PepsiCo, on the other hand, has a huge presence in the broader snack industry, with ownership of brands like FritoLay and Mountain Dew contributing a huge percentage of its earnings.

So which makes more sense for your portfolio? Motley Fool Consumer Goods Analyst Sean O'Reilly breaks the situation down for Foolish investors. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments below.
