PepsiCo profit beats Street Add to ...

PepsiCo Inc. reported a higher-than-expected fourth-quarter profit on Thursday, helped by increases in sales volume and prices, and gave a 2013 forecast consistent with its ongoing turnaround plan.

The maker of Gatorade sports drinks and Quaker oatmeal forecast 2013 earnings, excluding any impact from currency, to grow 7 per cent from the $4.10 per share it earned in 2012, a “transition year” in which profit fell 5 per cent.

Net revenue fell 1 per cent to $19.95-billion. Excluding the effect of items including selling some businesses, an extra selling week in 2011 and currency exchange rates, revenue increased 5 per cent.
