n order for a company to be financially healthy, it is of most importance that the company must analyze, interpret, and review the business’s annual financial reports. The financial analyses of the annual reports provide insights and information regarding the performances of the business. In this paper, I will be disclosing financial evaluations and comparisons between Coca-Coca and PepsiCo Incorporation. The visualizations used in this paper were designed to provide the analyses performed utilizing three financial analyses methods: vertical analysis, horizontal analysis, and ratios analysis. There will also be recommendations made on how Coke and Pepsi could improve their financial status. Vertical Analysis-Pepsi and Coke

A vertical analysis is used most frequently to monitor annual changes. One of the biggest benefits of a vertical analysis is if gives a company the ability to evaluate the comparison between the total net sales and the cost of goods sold. Illustration 1 shows vertical analyses for 2004 and 2005 (select financial data) for Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, Inc. performances.
