Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA)Is SodaStream the Next Green Mountain Debacle? (Forbes)
The bull case for Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) sounds identical to the one once flouted by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR), a razor/razorblade business model for a newfangled way of getting a drink. SodaStream, like Green Mountain and its K-Cup-enabled coffee makers back in the day, is one of the hottest companies on and off Wall Street. …Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR) suffered that 50% share price fall in 2011 after David Einhorn pointed out several issues investors were overlooking in their glee over Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR)’s growth. With a series of slides, the hedge fund manager made Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR)’s lofty share price – and the investors who fell for it — suddenly look quite ridiculous. Israel-based Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) faces a couple of those same issues, with a much more modest share price.

Sodastream International Price Target Increased to $100.00 by Analysts at Barclays Capital (SODA) (MideastTime)

The firm currently has an “overweight” rating on the stock. Barclays Capital’s price objective would suggest a potential upside of 56.74% from the company’s current price. Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) opened at 67.36 on Monday. Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) has a 1-year low of $28.28 and a 1-year high of $55.62. The stock’s 50-day moving average is currently $49.97. The company has a market cap of $1.393 billion and a price-to-earnings ratio of 29.27.

Dutch settlement profiteers listed in new report (ElectronicIntifada)
A recent report by the economic research and corporate responsibility group Profundo on Dutch economic links with the Israeli occupation lists Dutch companies profitting from Israel’s settlement enterprise. Produndo identified 18 Israeli settlement companies — including Agrexco/Carmel, Edom Fruits, Hadiklaim, Mehadrin Group, Shamir Salads, Golan Heights Winery, Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA), Ahava Cosmetics, Keter Group plastics and Tip Top Toys — which trade with 38 Dutch companies. Some of the Dutch companies distribute agricultural produce and Ahava cosmetics from the settlements mislabeled as “Made in Israel,” and which are sold to Dutch chains such C1000, Jumbo and Kring Pharmacies. EU consumer law requires the correct labeling of the place of origin, especially food imports.

Invite Soda Stream to your next Bar-B-Que (WashingtonTimes)
We drink a lot of sparkling water and, with Soda Stream, have begun to experiment with our own soda flavors. Soda stream has changed the way we view carbonated drinks. According to the Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) website, it costs you $.25 to make a can of soda or sparkling water with the soda stream. I do not know if this includes the price of the soda maker itself, (which can run from $69.99 to $130), the special bottles (one comes with the soda maker, extras are $19.99 for a two-pack) and the carbonator cans (one comes with the soda maker, refills are $14.99 new are $29.99).

The Next Victims of Commoditization (Fool)
Countless numbers of consumers re-evaluated their spending patterns after the recent economic downturn. One way people have decided to trim the fat in their budgets is by ditching their once-beloved, big-branded foods and beverages. Where does this leave name-brand manufacturers? …ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE:CAG) acquired Ralcorp Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:RAH) late last year, making it North America’s largest manufacturer of private-label foods. The Ralcorp Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:RAH) acquisition should boost ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE:CAG)’s sales and earnings growth over the long term and give the combined company a larger footprint in the overall packaged-food industry. Meanwhile, Cott recently partnered with cola-industry disruptor Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA). The private-label beverage company will provide new flavors and extra capacity to meet Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA)’s increasing U.S. demand.
