PepsiCo Inc. /zigman2/quotes/208744353/composite PEP +1.30% said Tuesday it had net income of $1.338 billion, or 96 cents a share, in its fiscal first quarter to March 21, down from $1.413 billion, or 1.00 a share, in the year-earlier period. Revenue rose to $13.881 billion from $12.884 billion. The FactSet consensus was for EPS of $1.03 and revenue of $13.192 billion. "Despite a strong first quarter, there is still a great deal of uncertainty that exists in relation to COVID-19, including how geographies, retail channels and consumer behaviors will evolve over time," the company said in a statement. "Due to this uncertainty, the Company's previous financial outlook regarding fiscal year 2020 is no longer applicable." The company is still expecting to return $7.5 billion to shareholders in fiscal 2020, split between dividends of $5.5 billion and share buybacks of $2.0 billion. Shares rose 0.9% premarket and are down 1.6% in 2020, while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.36% has fallen 11%.
