The Winner

New product innovations born from collaborating with other leading companies and expanded market reach achieved through various distribution networks and e-commerce sites, should enable both PEP and OTLY to grow. However, with a rising number of lawsuits being filed on the recently listed  OTLY stock, we think PEP is a better buy now given its higher profitability  and lower valuation.
