11:47 EDTGMCRAnalysts mixed on Keurig after cold drink maker unveiling
Several research firms disagreed on the outlook for Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) upcoming at-home cold beverage maker, Keurig KOLD, after the company unveiled the product yesterday. SunTrust and Bernstein expressed major reservations about the product, while Susquehanna was more upbeat about the device and said the shares had reached a good entry point for investors. WHAT'S NEW: Keurig's management seemed to take a cautious view on the outlook for the device's sales, Bernstein analyst Ali Dibadj wrote. Additionally, the device and its pods "seemed a bit pricey" and large. However, the analyst, noting that the company hopes to eventually cut the price of the product to $200 from $300, called a potential $200 price point "more palatable for consumers." Furthermore, Dibadj says he has a hard time "fully understanding" the company's assertion that the device solves several problems. SunTrust analyst William Chappell, Jr. was impressed by the device's technology, but said he was concerned by the product's initial price and the investments that Keurig will have to make to launch the product. He kept a Neutral rating on the shares. BULLISH OUTLOOK:, Susquehanna analyst Pablo Zuanic said that most of the information on Kold was disappointing. The analyst said that he was disappointed by the device's high price and the fact that it will take a minute to make each drink. However, noting that SodaStream's (SODA) cold drink makers have penetrated 1.5% of U.S. households, the analyst says it is "not out of the question" that Kold can reach 3% household penetration in the U.S. by fiscal 2017-2018. If Kold does attain that milestone, Green Mountain's profits would double, the analyst stated. Zuanic remained upbeat on the company's long-term outlook and says that the stock is not currently reflecting any value for Kold. He believes that the stock has reached a good entry point, and kept a $140 price target and Positive rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Coca-Cola (KO) owns a 16% stake in Keurig Green Mountain. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Keurig Green Mountain dropped 8.3% to $94.50, while SodaStream gained 2.5% to $22.25.

08:35 EDTELONEchelon now sees Q2 EPS (7c)-(4c) vs. previous view of (8c)-(5c)
Consensus is (6c). For Q2 2015, the lease termination agreement results in a revised estimated non-GAAP loss of ($0.04) to ($0.07) per share versus the previous guidance of ($0.05) to ($0.08). On a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2015, the lease termination results in a revised estimated loss of ($0.05) to ($0.08) per share versus the previous guidance of ($0.07) to ($0.10). Once the company moves to a new, right-sized headquarters in Q1 2016, both GAAP and non-GAAP savings are estimated to improve by approximately $800,000 per quarter. Among other things, as a result of the lease termination, the net book value of the buildings will be reduced to approximately $5.0 million, which will then be amortized over the remainder of 2015 in conjunction with the new short-term lease. In addition, for GAAP purposes, the company will record a one-time benefit in the second quarter associated with the termination of the lease of approximately $1.5 million.
08:34 EDTELONEchelon retires $21.4M of long term facilities lease obligations
Echelon Corporation announced that it has reached an agreement with the landlord of its 150,000 square foot San Jose, CA headquarters related to the long-term leases for office space the company no longer requires. Under the terms of the agreement, the existing leases, which run through 2020, have been terminated and replaced with a short-term lease for a smaller portion of the facility that will run through the remainder of 2015. In return for this early termination, the company has agreed to a one-time up front cash payment of $10M and lease payments for the balance of 2015 totaling $900,000. This will eliminate the remaining lease obligation payments of $21.4M. As a result of this transaction, net cash on the balance sheet will increase by approximately $5.5 million. On a non-GAAP basis, the company estimates facilities related savings will be between $400,000 and $600,000 per quarter for the balance of 2015. On a GAAP basis, the company anticipates that the transaction will result in additional depreciation expense of approximately $1.5M per quarter through the end of 2015 as the remaining building assets are amortized off its balance sheet.
08:05 EDTGMCRBernstein has reservations about Keurig Green Mountain's Keurig Kold
After attending Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) Keurig Kold launch event, Bernstein says that it has a hard time understanding the device's value proposition and sensed some caution from the company about how quickly the device's penetration will rise and be accretive to earnings. The firm says the device and pods seem a bit expensive, while the brewer and pods are large. The firm believes that the taste of the product's Diet Coke drink was off, although regular Coke and others were good. Coca-Cola (KO) owns a 16% stake in Keurig Green Mountain. SodaStream (SODA) develops and markets at-home cold beverage makers.
