Breakout

SodaStream's sweet surge; Intel a Nasdaq winner; Credit Suisse hit by trading woes

Breakout

Making the list today as measured by your Yahoo Finance Ticker searches are:

Intel (INTC): The world's largest semiconductor maker higher today after reporting an earnings beat last night. While Intel's execution and margin control is tip top, the company is still heavily reliant on PC-based products. Intel's future is in mobile and that's still a tiny portion of overall revenues. With shares up more than 20% in the last 12 months, investors are taking a slightly guarded approach today.

Credit Suisse (CS): The bank trading lower today after earnings disappointed the street. The second biggest Swiss bank said a drop in debt trading weighed on investment banking profit. Like so many of the banks reporting this week, Credit Suisse is trying to change its business model on the fly in order to de-emphasize trading and reduce leverage risk. Credit Suisse shares are off 2.5% today but still higher for the year to date.

SodaStream (SODA): popping as much 12% on rumors it's in talks to sell as much as 16% of itself to a strategic partner. Israeli financial daily Calcilist says the deal could value SodaStream at $1.1 billion, or $52 a share. Though Calcilist didn't offer specifics, it's been rumored for months that Pepsi (PEP) would look to form a partnership with SodaStream in response to archrival Coca-Cola (KO) and Green Mountain Keurig (GMCR) striking a deal earlier this year.
