The company's quarterly results showed significant declines for revenue and earnings. That said, the quarter was likely the lowest point of the year

The Coca-Cola Co. (KO) recently released second-quarter earnings results that saw the company suffer a steep decline for both revenue and earnings per share.

Market analysts had expected the quarter to be extremely challenging, and it was. The coronavirus-related shutdowns that impacted the U.S. and much of the world during the second quarter weighed significantly upon results.

After looking at PepsiCo Inc.’s (PEP) results, this wasn’t surprising as snacks were strong while beverages were weak. Coca-Cola has no snack business, making overall numbers much uglier.

That said, these numbers are likely the worst that Coca-Cola will see this year as

The company delivered a decent result backed by its snacks segment, but its beverage struggle continues

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP). While the negative impact on the food-service industry and other related sectors has affected the beverage business, the corresponding benefit with respect to grocery store consumer demand has been enjoyed by its snacking brands. Quaker and Frito-Lays have been among the biggest beneficiaries in this environment and have helped the company deliver a strong quarterly result.

The company continues to pay a dividend and expects to have a decent upside with an expected jump in the snacks segments. However, its biggest struggle continues to be the beverages space,

A look at the company's second quarter and year to date results

On Monday, PepsiCo (PEP) reported its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

For the quarter, organic revenues declined marginally, with a 5% increase in the company’s snacks business due to overall category growth and market share gains offset by a 7% decline in the beverages business due to headwinds in convenience stores (C-stores) and other high-margin away-from-home channels (most notably foodservice). This decline followed a strong result in the first quarter (organic revenues +8%), with year to date organic revenues at PepsiCo up 3%.

As a dividend growth investor, receiving a dividend increase means a higher level of income, but also that the company providing the raise is on solid financial footing
