Oatly Vs. Pepsi: Which Beverage Stock Is A Better Buy?

In May, PEP launched soulboost, a sparkling water beverage with a splash of real juice and functional ingredients. Available in four flavors, this sparkling water beverage  supports mental stamina and relaxation. The company expects this product to attain good market reach because  the demand for wellness products is on the rise.

On behalf of its stockholders, Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a law firm announced today that it is investigating potential claims against OTLY regarding  allegations it  violated  the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices. On July 14, 2021, Spruce Point Capital Management published a report accusing OTLY of misleading investors by omitting or manipulating key facts in public filings concerning its revenue and margins, as well as its “green” credentials. The report also outlined why they believe OTLY’s shares face up to 30% -70% intermediate-term downside risk and longer-term insolvency risk. These developments are  likely to make investors lose confidence in the stock now.
