Where the Money Is Mailbag: The Best Way to Invest in Sports, and Should You Own PepsiCo if You Love

In this segment from the latest episode of Where the Money Is, Consumer Goods editor Mark Reeth and Consumer Goods analyst Sean O'Reilly answer queries from viewers looking for Foolish answers to their investing questions. The first question comes from David W., who asks:

Steve Ballmer just bought the Clippers for $2 billion. I don't have that kind of money, so how can I invest in a sports team?

Mark and Sean answer this question by discussing the recently announced news that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer would buy the NBA franchise. They say individuals without $2 billion to spend can invest in competitive sports through means including purchasing shares in English soccer club Manchester United or New York's storied Madison Square Garden 

The second question comes from Michael D., who asks:

I love caffeine and also happen to own shares in PepsiCo . Is this the best stock for me to own given my love of caffeinated beverages?

Mark and Sean here discuss PepsiCo's future, and offer up alternative investment ideas for investors looking to get in on the caffeine game, including Starbucks and Monster Beverage
