The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which, Eric Bleeker, senior technology editor, and John Reeves, analyst, discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, John suggests investors take a look at PepsiCo. The company is not only a global powerhouse but also has a strong presence in food brands in addition to its well-known beverages.
