Highlights from PepsiCo's (PEP) earnings conference call: The company sees tremendous growth opportunities in Southeast Asia and calls out Gatorade to see a short-term sales boost.

Execs pass on issuing any guidance for 2013 when asked, saying they will give estimates when Q4 results are released in February. Shares -0.2% premarket. (webcast)
