Coke & Pepsi Earnings Better Than Expected

t's been a good week to be in the soda business. While the debate over whether Pepsi or Coke taste better will probably go on forever, there's no denying the beverage companies have fairly healthy balance sheets. PepsiCo and Coca-Cola both reported better-than-expected earnings this week, proving to investors that consumers still like their soda (or pop if you're from the Midwest) and snacks. (CNN Money)
