PepsiCo PEP CEO Indra Nooyi is holding to the idea that the company should remain as one unit of PepsiCo and Frito-Lay, while activist investor Nelson Peltz is pushing for the two entities to split. TheStreet's Jim Cramer calls Nooyi one of his 21 "Bankable CEOs" and believes she would go through with Peltz's idea if she felt it best for the company. Cramer thinks PepsiCo and Frito-Lay under one roof is a solid plan and notes the company has generated some earnings power; however, Cramer is down on the soda business at the moment. He notes there are several ways to win here because when an activist gets involved, regardless of the CEO's feelings on said activist's opinion, the stock tends to climb. Cramer calls Nooyi a "very good executive" whom he expects to increase the company's value over time. Therefore, he suggests PepsiCo as a terrific buy under $83 dollars a share.
