By Katie Little, Special to CNBC NEW YORK ( CNBC) -- Although PepsiCo ( PEP) may have more upside than Coca-Cola ( KO), PepsiCo stock also carries additional risk for investors, said John Faucher, senior U.S. beverage analyst at JPMorgan Chase. In an interview with CNBC's "Squawk on the Street," Faucher discussed Coca-Cola's first-quarter earnings release. The company reported profit and revenue that beat analysts' forecasts on Tuesday. "I was impressed with certain things," he said. "I think the volume growth certainly was slightly better than expected. The margin leverage was a little bit weaker. We've seen that over the past couple of quarters."
