There are three different ratios that will explain the financial out look for these companies and it will show if investments made are making money.

They can do somehow a better job in making sound investments and control the marketing with their products. I see that there were some challenges from some years especially when PepsiCo and Coco-Cola were at a war to compete each other with their businesses. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are a few years apart, but both of them are well known and have such popularity with people drinking their sodas. Coca-Cola has been trying to surpass PepsiCo in their annual sales; however, from review, PepsiCo somehow has the highest number in their annual sales than Coca-Cola. PepsiCo has shown the best current ratio and is able to pay off their debts, which Coca-Cola does not have that and is struggling to pay off their debts. However, Coca-Cola has a higher retained earnings percentage, which means that it is able to have funds available for future growth of the company. The hope for both companies is to provide their financial statement with better information presented over their competitor giving the ability to earn more investors. PepsiCo and Coca-Cola do not need to be at war with each other as they have what it takes to get people to use both products, no matter what.
