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.

ISS and Glass, Lewis & Co, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommended Intel (INTC) investors vote against the reelection of eBay (EBAY) CEO John Donahoe to the company's board, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link
