Does this dis interest a usa only or is it a WW or should I say a middle east thing. Not certain on how the investors break down in terms of % USA vs other but it would seem that this is an extreme hit in Europe. Anyway I believe this neg. hype of pep and ko not taking over is well overdone. I don't believe the CEO is pursuing suitors but partnerships to expand growth. There are other potential suitors that would make a perfect fit including the one that the university came up with in Dec 2011. Also the expansion of clean drinking water will play into Sodastream. You could start to hear other suitors as this stock is well undervalued in respect to the historic and future growth rates and would make a cheap acquistion. Forget pep and ko and go soda
If you were to put together a baseball team to win the world series, you go out and find the best talent. It is the same with stocks. Put in your portfolio the best stocks out there. Soda is in trouble. Forget it for now. The Riccaro Quotient has tons of better stocks to look into.
