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.

Goldman analyst Samuel Eisner upgraded Whirlpool to Buy and believes current Street estimates underestimate accretion from the Indesit acquisition. Additionally, Eisner's analysis on North American replacement demand indicates the market is poised to continue to drive MSD/HSD revenue growth. The analyst said accelerating returns combined with an attractive valuation creates a favorable entry point. Eisner maintained his $174 price target on Whirlpool shares.

11:18 EDTKOWells Fargo, Citron take sides in Monster Beverage debate
Monster Beverage (MNST) is rising slightly in the down market after Wells Fargo upgraded the stock, saying that the shares have reached a compelling entry point while Monster's convenience store sales appear to have accelerated. UPGRADE: The recent weakness in Monster's stock has created a "compelling entry point," according to Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog, who upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform. Moreover, Wells Fargo's survey of beverage retailers suggests that the company's sales at convenience stores rose 10% last quarter, up from 7% in Q3. Additionally, the survey found that the quality of Monster's distribution operation had greatly improved in recent months. As a result, Herzog wrote that the issues caused by the company's transition to using Coca-Cola's (KO) distribution system had been "largely resolved." Monster's earnings growth should accelerate over the next five years as it penetrates new overseas markets, including China, the analyst contended. There are "numerous scenarios" that would enable the beverage maker to beat earnings expectations going forward, Herzog believes. In addition to international expansion, the company could benefit from accelerated share buybacks, a reduced tax rate and "major innovations" in beverages outside of its core energy business, according to Herzog. She raised her price target on the shares to $159-$161 from $139-$141. SHORT REPORT: On January 29, short-selling research firm Citron wrote that Monster's "valuation..is completely removed from reality." Over the past five years, Monster's stock has surged 500%, even though its revenue has only increased 90%, the firm stated. Meanwhile, Coca-Cola's 2014 purchase of a stake in Monster will prevent the latter company from being acquired, as Coke is not interested in buying Monster, Citron contended. In China, Monster will have to cope with high start-up costs, tough competition and lower margins, Citron warned. Furthermore, the company's new products cannibalize its existing drinks, Citron believes. Also on January 29, the small Eastern European country of Latvia decided to ban sales of energy drinks to minors. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Monster climbed 2% to $137.73. The stock dipped about 1.6% on Friday.
