Diageo plc (ADR) (DEO), BEAM Inc (BEAM): Where Sodastream International Ltd (SODA) Has Gone Flat

BEAM Inc (NYSE:BEAM) is another possible partner. A partnership would surely help the company meet its goal of 25% long-term sales growth from innovation. BEAM Inc (NYSE:BEAM)’s Pinnacle Vodka is the fifth largest growing spirit brand, rising 62% in 2012. Beam also has a valuable brand in Skinnygirl, which was the seventh largest growing brand in 2012. Created by television star Bethenny Frankel, Skinnygirl began as a ready-to-serve Margarita product. Having grown in popularity, the Skinnygirl line now features Sangria, White Cranberry Cosmo, and White Peach Margarita, to name a few.

Bottoms up

Teaming up with Diageo plc (ADR) (NYSE:DEO) or BEAM Inc (NYSE:BEAM) seems like a logical evolution in SodaStream’s already impressive growth story. Partnerships aside, industry leaders Diageo and Beam both offer convincing arguments for investment, as spirits continue to rise in popularity in the U.S.

Dividend stocks can make you rich. It’s as simple as that. While they don’t garner the notoriety of high-flying growth stocks, they’re also less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine.
