12:11 EDTDPS, KO, PEP, WHR, DECK, SODASodaStream advances after KitchenAid unveils new soda maker
Shares of SodaStream (SODA) are climbing after Whirlpool's (WHR) KitchenAid brand announced that it would sell an at-home soda maker developed in collaboration with the Israeli company. WHAT'S NEW: KitchenAid earlier today introduced the Sparkling Beverage Maker, which it developed in partnership with Israel-based SodaStream. Offering four carbonation settings, the product will go on sale in June at a suggested retail price of $249.99, the home appliance maker revealed. The device's "all-metal design and eye-catching aesthetics make it uniquely Kitchen Aid," said Beth Robinson, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. WHAT'S NOTABLE: SodaStream and KitchenAid first announced that they were collaborating last June. At the time, the companies said that they expected to unveil a product in the fourth quarter of 2013. Last month, Coca-Cola (KO) and Green Mountain (GMCR) announced that they would jointly develop their own at-home cold drink maker. In the wake of that news, some speculated that SodaStream could partner with either Pepsi (PEP) or Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS). On March 6, well-known hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson divulged that he had invested in SodaStream, and said the company reminded him of Uggs-maker Deckers Outdoor (DECK). Like Uggs, SodaStream's products are said by detractors to be a fad, but have a loyal following, according to Tilson. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SodaStream climbed $1.45, or 3.65%, to $41.22, while Whirlpool added 1% to $146.43.

06:37 EDTPEPActivist investor to pressure for new Pepsi CEO in summer, NY Post says
Nelson Peltz plans to pressure PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi this summer to develop a plan of succession, reports the New York Post. Peltz, who owns 1.2% of PepsiCo through his Trian Partners, recently had his adviser William Johnson appointed to the company's board. Johnson begins serving on the board in March and will push for quick leadership change, potentially allowing Peltz to name a CEO more willing to spin off Pepsi's Frito-Lay into a separate company.
