10:25 EDTSODA, PEP, NSRGY, DPS, NFLX, GGPSodaStream advances after Tilson touts shares
Shares of SodaStream (SODA), which makes at-home soda makers, are climbing after well-known hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson revealed that he had established a position in the stock and wrote an upbeat article about the company. WHAT'S NEW: Tilson wrote in the article dated yesterday that after conducting a survey he does not believe that SodaStream's product is a fad, as short sellers contend. "People love their SodaStreams," he reported. Tilson said that in the past when he has been upbeat about stocks with high short interests the shares have produced some of his biggest winners, noting that SodaStream has a high short interest. Netflix (NFLX) and General Growth Properties (GGP) are two examples of such prior winners, Tilson stated. Furthermore, although SodaStream's operating income sank 67% last quarter, most of its difficulties appear to be "truly short-term, fixable problems," the hedge fund manager contended. Meanwhile, SodaStream dominates its market and competitors will have a difficult time catching up, Tilson added. Moreover, its valuation is "reasonable," he believes. Finally, SodaStream would be "a highly attractive" takeover target for Pepsi (PEP), Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), or even Nestle (NSRGY), Tilson contended. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, SodaStream rallied $1.82, or 4.6%, to $41.50.
