Technical analysis shows that PepsiCo has support at $153. We think that the support will hold despite the bear market. If the support were to be breached, the stock would establish a new level at $129. The latter is highly unlikely to occur. This is because the market is already considered to be close to or already at the bottom. With the decline occurring fast, the recovery will be expected to be as quick. The resistance is at $173, but that is of little concern in the bear market.
We recommend buying PepsiCo for the bear market. PepsiCo is a consumer defensive stock. It is attractive because of the low volatility in price and the regular dividend income.
