TheStreet Ratings rates Dr Pepper Snapple Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Coca-Cola Femsa S.A.B. de C.V ( KOF), down 6.7%, SkyPeople Fruit Juice ( SPU), down 6.4%, Key Technology ( KTEC), down 5.5%, and Crumbs Bake Shop ( CRMB), down 4.5%, were all laggards within the food & beverage industry with Companhia de Bebidas das Americas Ambev ( ABV) being today's food & beverage industry laggard.
