Financial Reporting Problem: PepsiCo, Inc. BYP18-1 Your

Resolved Question:

Financial Reporting Problem: PepsiCo, Inc.
BYP18-1
Your parents are considering investing in PepsiCo common stock. They ask you, as an accounting expert, to make an analysis of the company for them. Fortunately, excerpts from a current annual report of PepsiCo are presented in Appendix A of this textbook. Note that all dollar amounts are in millions.
Instructions
(Follow the approach in the chapter for rounding numbers.)
(a) Make a 5-year trend analysis, using 2005 as the base year, of (1) net sales and (2) net income. Comment on the significance of the trend results.
(b) Compute for 2009 and 2008 the (1) profit margin, (2) asset turnover, (3) return on assets, and (4) return on common stockholders' equity. How would you evaluate PepsiCo's profitability? Total assets at December 31, 2007, were \$34,628 and total stockholders' equity at December 31, 2007, was \$17,325.
(c) Compute for 2009 and 2008 the (1) debt to total assets and (2) times interest earned ratio. How would you evaluate PepsiCo's long-term solvency?
(d) What information outside the annual report may also be useful to your parents in making a decision about PepsiCo, Inc.?

Hi Kerri

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask; if all is clear, please rate the solution as experts do not get paid unless you rate the solution.

Good news :)

You stated you have seen this before. I hope it was not for the same professor. XXXXX XXXXX.

I do not ask the students about the name of their instructors Kerri :)

But to be on the safe side ALWAYS reword the essay parts of the solutions, NEVER present them as your own because someone else might purchase the same solution. As you can see there isn't much writing involved, but better reword as I have advised you on top of the document

Ask-a-doc Web sites: If you've got a quick question, you can try to get an answer from sites that say they have various specialists on hand to give quick answers... Justanswer.com.
...leave nothing to chance.
Traffic on JustAnswer rose 14 percent...and had nearly 400,000 page views in 30 days...inquiries related to stress, high blood pressure, drinking and heart pain jumped 33 percent.
Tory Johnson, GMA Workplace Contributor, discusses work-from-home jobs, such as JustAnswer in which verified Experts answer people’s questions.
I will tell you that...the things you have to go through to be an Expert are quite rigorous.
