12:11 EDTSODA, WHR, KO, DECK, PEP, DPSSodaStream 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.
