Warren B. will drop some pocket change for Sodastream. Now that's a man with deep pockets and has advertised that Israel is the best coountry to invest in next to the US. And he loves to drink and invest in Coke. Now the above scenario is some what far fetched. I just put it out there to say there are many possiblities for Sodastream just as the shorts point out the gloom and doom. You just need to ask yourself if you believe in Soda's stream business model and execution is sound or not. If yes then invest and forget the rumor mill. If no then short and pay no attention to the takeover rumors.
Actually it is common. Soda has had several takeover rumors. If you go back and plot these activities you will find just the opposite. Not to say that history repeats but it will be interesting over the next 5-6 days. Not talking about earnings but if you looked up the graphs for those periods of time you may see a trend and if it repeats take advantage of it. Forget if a rumor is true or not it's just the market reaction to news as it relates to Sodastream over time..
Thanks for the heads up. The above article has some of my thoughts of yesterday. The only difference is I would rank a little higher potential of happening.
Thanks Seth. I didn't expect any arrows on my request but some may have thought my request was a negative comment. It wasn't. Just wanted your opinion since you are so close to the market numbers. Thanks and have a good day.
Hi Seth and Burgh, your right I was very cryptic on my message. Been too busy making alot of trades and doing assessments of my plan of attack going forward. Between Soda and FFIV they both hit at once. I definetly made some add't assumptions to bloomberg's announcement on if this was to happen how it would look and what mgt. would need. Sorry about that. As I played through alot of what ifs I came up a surprising plan assumption that I believe is too tempting for a business to pass up. Now a simple minded low level investor model looks good I can imagine what the big boys may have put together. Anyway Soda has alot of possibilities. Today we all can say you can do alot of trading. good luck to all on both sides of the trade.
this one will have legs. It has many positive attributes for Dan B. to get the necessary cash to market his product the way he wants without the wall street BS. Been involved with many private takeovers and this one has good possibilities. The share holders might come up short in terms of the stock price but it's a win win for Soda management and Soda the company.
No matter what happens traders will have fun with this one. Finally some price movement in both directions.
i AGREE. John M. is known for sandbagging the forecast. Unless the analysts are a sleep at the wheel we should see 114 soon.
Most of the board is in line with Whitney thinking some time ago. The question I have is what will be the whisper 2014 earnings forecast number. THE quarterly number for Q2 will be a beat almost a given.
