What’s happening: Shares of PepsiCo rose on Thursday, after the company released results for its fourth quarter.

What happened: The Frito-Lay maker reported quarterly results that exceeded market expectations.

PepsiCo also announced a dividend hike, which provided further support to its stock on Thursday.

How were the results: The Purchase, New York-based company reported growth in sales for the three months ended in December, which topped market views.

  • Sales climbed 10.9% year-over-year to $28 billion, beating the consensus estimates of $26.84 billion.
  • Core earnings rose 9.1% year-over-year to $1.67 per share, topping the Wall Street expectations of $1.65 per share.

Why it matters: PepsiCo announced several rounds of price increases last year due to rising freight and commodity costs. Also, a sharp appreciation in the US dollar impacted international sales.

Organic sales volumes declined 2% following average price hikes of about 16% over the three month period.

Net revenues from Frito-Lay North America jumped 25% year-over-year, while revenues from Quaker Foods North America and PepsiCo Beverages North America surged 16% and 6%, respectively.

However, due to rising expenses, the company’s operating margins shrank 723 basis points to 2.9%, while operating income declined 68.2% to $815 million.

The company raised its annualised dividend by 10% to $5.06 per share. Management also guided to organic revenue growth of 6% and core constant currency earnings growth of 8% for fiscal 2023. They projected earnings of $7.20 per share, versus market expectations of $7.28 per share.

How shares responded: PepsiCo’s shares rose 1% to close at $172.78 on Thursday, following the release of quarterly results. The stock has lost around 3% over the past month.

What to watch: Investors will keep an eye on inflation rates, which could continue to impact the company’s margins this year.
