First up is PepsiCo ( PEP), the $130 billion food and beverage giant. Pepsi may be best-known for its namesake soft drink brand, but the firm is also one of the biggest snack food makers in the world thanks to its Frito Lay unit. In total, the firm earns around half of its revenue from food and the other half from beverages.

>>5 Stocks Poised to Break Out

Pepsi's diversification provides some separation from Coca-Cola ( KO), the top contender in the non-alcoholic beverage space. Each firm, though, owns a stellar distribution apparatus, which in Pepsi's case can be dual purposed for both the beverage and food business. That logistics expertise provides cost savings that rival firms can't match.

Meanwhile, the firm has been searching out other ways to acquire advantages through scale. Pepsi bought its two main North American bottlers in 2010, a deal that's kept more profits in-house and provided more nimble manufacturing abilities for a swifter marketing machine. As consumers in emerging markets increase their consumption of packaged beverages and snack foods to become more in line with the West, Pepsi has some big growth opportunities ahead of it.

Already, the firm's inroads in China and India are looking promising for investors -- and with rising expectations ringing in from analysts this week, we're betting on shares.
