10:49 EDTSODA, GMCR, PEP, DPS, SBUX, KOSodaStream rallies following report of talks to sell stake to American company
Shares of Israel's SodaStream (SODA) are surging after an Israeli website reported that the company was in talks to sell a stake to a major American company. Meanwhile, Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) - which is developing a product that will compete with SodaStream's at-home soda makers - is falling slightly, despite the up market. WHAT'S NEW: SodaStream has held early stage discussions about selling a 10%-16% stake in itself to a strategic buyer, according to Hebrew language business website Calcalist. SodaStream is talking about selling the shares based on a company valuation of $52 per share, the website stated, adding that SodaStream has had discussions about the matter with PepsiCo (PEP), Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS), or Starbucks (SBUX). The company holding discussions about buying SodaStream is interested in receiving options that would enable it to raise its stake in the company in the future, said Calcalist. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) announced in February that it was partnering with Coca-Cola (KO) to develop its own at-home cold drinks maker, which will compete with SodaStream's products. Coca-Cola took a 10% stake in Keurig Green Mountain and has the option to increase its stake in the future. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, research firm Stifel called Calcalist's report "unsubstantiated and unlikely." In the past the website reported falsely that PepsiCo was going to purchase SodaStream, noted Stifel analyst Jim Duffy. Additionally, Duffy continues to believe that SodaStream would not be a good partner for a major American company, partly because SodaStream's profit margins aren't high enough and because its profits would not move the needle for a large partner. He kept a Sell rating on SodaStream. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, SodaStream jumped 8.6% to $40.93 and Keurig Green Mountain shares lost 0.67% to $96.74.
