    I have to admit that I just don't understand why PEP, in particular (and for that matter KO) doesn't buy SODA primarily for the CO2 tech they have. I still say that the future for home carbonation is NOT in a countertop appliance. The tech has already advanced to the refrigerator door AND prices will come down as it becomes more prevalent. I know there is a buddy/buddy relationship with KO & GMCR since the CEO of GMCR came from KO, but I don't understand that neither of these two companies are very forward thinking. PEP could get the edge here. I don't care if it's Keurig Cold, Bevz (or whatever PEP is working on) or SODA -- the FUTURE is NOT on the COUNTER! Just maybe that it one reason why SODA is open to a buyout. If I could get a hot cup of coffee dispensed from the door of my refrigerator you can bet that another countertop appliance would be gone -- I'd get rig of EVERY coffeepot - except my Chemex -- which doesn't sit on a counter!!!

    You are right, and I do/did know the answer you give. When you can buy a refrigerator for less than $1,000.00 and price is a necessary factor that is true. We purchased a Samsung frig over a year ago and opted for one with the SODA in the door. At the time the price was $3995. SRPP -- however we got a deal with 20% off which brought it down to $3200. The refrigerators we were considering before that were in the range of $3000 to $3400 for all the ice/water options on the door. Me, personally, I could care less since I am not a soda drinker (if I drink/drank 6 sodas a year that would be a lot) but my husband likes carbonated water and the kids drink sodas (and LOVE to make their own concoctions!) although I will admit that over the summer I got rather hooked on the SODA (carbonated) lemonade ice cream floats!!

    But, my point is that as the technology becomes more standard and prevalent it will (or should) become available in more refrigerators and the price will come down and be available on lower end models. At least that's what I think and SODA is in the cat bird seat with the CO2 cartridges!!

    EXACTLY!! I don't know WHY SODA doesn't make more of this - I don't believe the future is in another countertop appliance when you can have it in/on your refrigerator door!!

    Why the big drop?

    Brewing a full pot is seriously going to get you to spend $200+ for a new Keurig? I've been brewing a full pot of coffee - in a carafe - for years ---- it's called Gevalia!!!

    P.S. They are dumping inventory -- Keurigs have hit the Big Lots outlet stores.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this to be mean. I bought GMCR at $22+ (while Einhorn was still trying to pound them into bankruptcy), but sold at $120+ -- and am staying out for now -- personal opinion sees more negatives than positives ahead. JMHO

    Thank you Nostradamus. We have tacked your up on the bulletin board - right next to the top 100 National Inquirer predictions for 2015. By the way, do you have a date or do you just want anytime in the whole year?

    Insider trading in SODA

    Well, I'm actually surprised they reported it!! Now, hopefully that they will report that all profits were purged and insider trading charges have been filed against the perpetrator -- and they are fined, (and in the case of a hedge fund or broker) suspended and/or barred from any future activity.

    Stifel not buying it

    Frankly, I wish Stifel would stifle themselves.

    Not necessarily just on this matter, frankly I don't even pay attention to these rumors anymore, but I almost wish there is a deal in the works -- higher than 40 -- and shove it down their smug self-serving throats!

    This is exactly the type of trade that is to set off the bells at the SEC -- and ANY evidence of a trade on inside information and resulting profit is (supposed) invalidated and overturned. Will see (well, actually we won't, unless something is reported) if the SEC is doing their job!!

    Bloomberg usually reliable

    stkmkter stkmkter Jul 24, 2014 1:42 PM Flag

    Really? Bloomberg was the one to report PEP was buying them out at 2B a year ago valuing the stock at $100! Bloomberg was the one to report Calcalist had said SODA was in late stage talks for a PARTIAL investment valuing the stock at $52 just a month of so ago! And, speaking to that -- WHY would a partial investment in the company value them at $52 and an outright buyout now be at $40?!! Not enough.

  • stkmkter stkmkter Jul 24, 2014 12:42 PM Flag

    Hard for me to take any of these serious anymore. But I think $40 is too cheap and robbery! I want at least 3.5/4 times book! He-l, hedge funds throw more than that away buying out some blog NOT that it was true awhile back when Bloomberg was reporting an investment in SODA (supposedly in late stage talks) would have valued the stock at $52 -- AND NOW an out right buyout is at $40 -- bulls--t! There CO2 carbonation unit is worth more than that alone!! I've said it before, and I will say it again, I don't believe the future is in another countertop appliance -- it will be in/on your refrigerator door -- such as SODA is already doing with Samsung and their alliance with Kitchen Aid (Whirlpool) is one step away.

    Contact the CBOE - there is a very inexpensive booklet that will tell you how all the various options work. With that knowledge you can figure out how to use option strategies to your advantages without the influence from someone else or wrote a book on just how they whipped and drove themselves into poverty (oh, excuse me, vast wealth) speculating in options, naked calls/puts, stripes/straddles/hedge wrappers etc. and has now written a book (to help others) to recoup some of their money!
