Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: Now's the Time to Buy Coca-Cola Over PepsiCo

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- PepsiCo (PEP - Get Report) shares are bubbling up over 1% Monday thanks to an upgrade from UBS to buy from hold. 

On CNBC’s “Cramer’s Stop Trading” segment, TheStreet’s Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, pointed out that Pepsi is up almost 9% in 2014, far outpacing Coca-Cola (KO - Get Report), which is down 4.5%.

So Cramer's suggestion is to "go after Coca-Cola.”

Why? PepsiCo's CEO Indra Nooyi runs the “best consumer packaged-goods company out there,” Cramer said. That means it's now “time to focus on all the ones that have been losers, not the one that has been the winner.”
