Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. Research Report

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group Inc. responded with a new line of 10 calorie versions
of 7-Up, Sunkist and three other sodas after launching a 10-calorie version of
Dr. Pepper in 2012. It is the only company that continues to thrive in the US,
with 70% of its sales coming from soda, and about 90% of its revenue from the
US. Dr. Pepper hopes to redefine the image of diet soda and win back soda
drinkers who wish to reduce their calorie intakes. Diet soda already accounts
for 20 percent of Dr. Pepper's soda sales and Larry Young, CEO of Plano, the
Texas-based Dr. Snapple Group, sees that the figure could reach between 40 to
50 percent in the next few years. With aggressive ad campaigns that promote
active lifestyles and new products that give consumers better options, top
soda makers are hoping to strengthen their position in the beverage market.
These companies are also researching and developing ways to produce sweeteners
that can substitute sugar in sodas. While many industry observers believe that
soda companies have to push harder to win back drinkers, their newer drinks
have reportedly been profitable and growing strong. The Full Research Report

Macy's, Inc. Research Report

Despite slow retail sales growth, analysts are still bullish towards Macy's.
The company is one of the most solid department stores with a track record of
strong execution. Over the next 5 years, analysts forecast a 10.8 percent
annual growth rate, backed by a 2.2 percent dividend yield. The company has
been successful in monetizing its online business, with online sales growing
by 40 percent in Q3 2012. Looking forward, a greater percentage of sales may
come from online mediums and Macy's is able to secure its position in the
mobile front. The Full Research Report on Macy's, Inc. - including full

Sears Holdings Corporation Research Report

Sears, on the other hand, is having a bit of a struggle. The company is among
the retailers that may have to close down stores in 2013 to improve margins.
The company has been struggling for years now; but after billionaire and new
Sears CEO Eddie Lampert purchased more than 332,000 shares at an average price
of $40.89 per share, analysts see this move as bullish, making the Sears a
decent purchase.

Another investor who remains confident with Sears is Bruce Berkowitz,
accumulating almost 17 million shares. He noted that the investment in the
company is more of a real estate play, not a retail play. By buying the
company, investors would get the real estate and the brands for free. The Full
