Cafe41-You know that’s great that PepsiCo offers all that information.
I like that they make it easy to invest with them. Buying direct shares properly allows a small investor to begin investing on a regular basis because most of these plans require minimal amounts of money to get started.
What I wanted to say with respect to the annual reports is that there is a site called the Public Register. They offer free annual reports for all publically traded companies that are on the NASDAQ, AMEX, OTC, and NYSE.
This is a great tool to use if you are interested in buying stock or corporate bonds of a company. Understanding the financials of a company before you invest will minimize potential risk in the future.
