Dr. Pepper Snapple Looking to Impress Shareholders

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2010) -  www.RothmanResearch.com evaluates the progression of Dr. Pepper Snapple Group Inc. as macroeconomic conditions within the industry strengthen. Sign up now at www.rothmanresearch.com to access the research report on Dr. Pepper Snapple.

The beverage sector is a $43.3 billion industry which regroups some of the most iconic companies in the world like Coca Cola, Pepsico Inc. and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group Inc. (NYSE: DPS). In the last couple of years, this industry has been wagering an all out war with lawmakers in Washington lobbying against soda taxes. As a means to curb the obesity level in the country, the U.S. government introduced the soda taxes. However, industry players do not want to be the only ones literally paying for the United States' unhealthiness and having their products tagged in a similar fashion as alcohol or cigarettes. After spending record millions to lobby against the soda taxes, the soda industry seems to now have the upper-hand over the government as these companies have managed to nullify the efforts of some states to have these taxes passed in 2010. www.rothmanresearch.com provides technical analysis and free downloadable research reports on Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. by signing up now at http://www.rothmanresearch.com/article/dps/23681/Jul-15-2010.html

"The share repurchase news could not have come at a better time, when the market is currently enjoying a bulls' rally motivated by outstanding earnings for this quarter," commented Jack Benassi of www.rothmanresearch.com. "Dr. Pepper is looking good at a shareholder level with this news, and it is also getting investors' interest with the 20-year agreement it sealed with Coca Cola in June."
