  • In the past, most M&A speculation regarding SodaStream has centered on potential strategic partnerships (Coca-Cola (KO), PepsiCo (PEP), Starbucks (SBUX)). However, with Coca-Cola’s equity stake in Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), PepsiCo’s bruited alliance with Bevyz and Starbucks moving into the fizzy drink space themselves, each of these strategic partnerships has seemed increasingly unlikely to us. However, given the still-robust outlook in our view for the at-home carbonation category, we can see why private equity might be interested in playing a role. We also consider the timing to be attractive from a potential acquirer’s perspective given that SodaStream is trading at less than 10x 2013 EBITDA owing to its recent execution slip-ups and investor anxiety about increasing competition in the category. Further, given both SodaStream’s unleveraged balance sheet and the outlook for stronger profit margins ahead as the company’s new manufacturing facility is set to come online next year, we think that raising debt to fund an LBO of the business would be relatively easy to do.

    It is not the responsibility of ‘climate realist’ scientists to prove that dangerous human-caused climate change is not happening. Rather, it is those who propose that it is, and promote the allocation of massive investments to solve the supposed ‘problem’, who have the obligation to convincingly demonstrate that recent climate change is not of mostly natural origin and, if we do nothing, catastrophic change will ensue. To date, this they have utterly failed to do so.

    In open letter to the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki Moon, 141 Scientists state that the science behind anthropogenic global warming is anything but "settled".
    No Longer Supported
    United States of America

    8 December 2009

    Dear Secretary-General,

    Climate change science is in a period of ‘negative discovery’ - the more we learn about this exceptionally complex and rapidly evolving field the more we realize how little we know. Truly, the science is NOT settled.

    Therefore, there is no sound reason to impose expensive and restrictive public policy decisions on the peoples of the Earth without first providing convincing evidence that human activities are causing dangerous climate change beyond that resulting from natural causes. Before any precipitate action is taken, we must have solid observational data demonstrating that recent changes in climate differ substantially from changes observed in the past and are well in excess of normal variations caused by solar cycles, ocean currents, changes in the Earth's orbital parameters and other natural phenomena.

    We the undersigned, being qualified in climate-related scientific disciplines, challenge the UNFCCC and supporters of the United Nations Climate Change Conference to produce convincing OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE for their claims of dangerous human-caused global warming and other changes in climate. Projections of possible future scenarios from unproven computer models of climate are not acceptable substitutes for real world data obtained through unbiased and rigorous scientific investigation.

    Specifically, we challenge supporters of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused climate change to demonstrate that:
    1.Variations in global climate in the last hundred years are significantly outside the natural range experienced in previous centuries;

    2.Humanity’s emissions of carbon dioxide and other ‘greenhouse gases’ (GHG) are having a dangerous impact on global climate;

    3.Computer-based models can meaningfully replicate the impact of all of the natural factors that may significantly influence climate;

    4.Sea levels are rising dangerously at a rate that has accelerated with increasing human GHG emissions, thereby threatening small islands and coastal communities;

    5.The incidence of malaria is increasing due to recent climate changes;

    6.Human society and natural ecosystems cannot adapt to foreseeable climate change as they have done in the past;

    7.Worldwide glacier retreat, and sea ice melting in Polar Regions , is unusual and related to increases in human GHG emissions;

    8.Polar bears and other Arctic and Antarctic wildlife are unable to adapt to anticipated local climate change effects, independent of the causes of those changes;

    9.Hurricanes, other tropical cyclones and associated extreme weather events are increasing in severity and frequency;

    10.Data recorded by ground-based stations are a reliable indicator of surface temperature trends.

    Get real, no such thing as Climate change, or climate destruction, or what ever term you progress left wing nuts use....Only climate change taking place is between your liberals minds.

    Yell, but it has $140 B market cap on $23B in revenue. Kind of high, yes?

  • Nomura Securities analyst M. Ian Somaiya reiterated a Buy rating and boosted his price target on Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) to $141.00 (from $130.00) given his bullish view on Sovaldi.

    Somaiya commented, "We raise our TP on GILD to $141, from $130, on strength of prescription data for Sovaldi and our assumptions for peak sales of $22bn (up from $16bn) based on launch of new two-drug and three-drug HCV combos in 2017 and 2018, respectively. We expect Phase I/II data by year-end to confirm their ability to maintain cure rates above 90%, while reducing treatment duration to six weeks. Our revised model strengthens our view that GILD is the most attractively priced large-cap growth stock in the healthcare industry, with a 2015E P/E of 11.2x. With free cash flow expected to reach ~$8.8bn in 2014 and ~$13bn in 2015, we believe GILD will not only continue to aggressively buy back shares, but also introduce a dividend in 2015."

    The firm maintained FY14E EPS at $7.5; FY15E EPS at $8.14.

    Wow down a whooping 70 cents, u the man.

  • “I would expect the stock to trade [roughly] flattish on the print,” ISI Group analyst Mark Schoenebaum said in a quick note to clients. He notes that Gilead’s results soundly beat estimates from sell-side analysts, but were in line with buy-side watchers of the company.

    There also may be some skittishness over the success of Sovaldi, Gilead’s blockbuster Hepatitis C drug that has generated an onslaught of criticism over it’s $1,000-a-day price tag. Insurers are calling for Gilead to bring down Sovaldi’s price, saying it’s unsustainable while a number of rivals are waiting in the wings with their own Hepatitis C alternatives.

    What may be unsustainable for Gilead is how much Sovaldi contributes to sales, accounting for half the Foster City, Calif.-based company’s revenue. Gilead also reported an other-worldly net margin of more than 55% for the quarter. Using adjusted income figures, that margin exceeds 60%.

  • Yingli gains following 32MW Japanese deal
    Yingli (YGE +3.3%) is supplying 32MW of modules in 2015 for a "large-scale" solar project in Okayama, Japan.
    The company mentioned in its Q1 report it's seeing "exceptional demand" in Japan (shipments up over 50% Q/Q). That, along with U.S./European growth, is helping offset Chinese softness.
    To bad JKS has very little business out side of China

  • Do u really want to be long this pos when earnings come out? You know after they miss big on earnings again , the MM will drop this $10. Join in the fun & start a short position. See u bag holders at $3... Lol
