However, Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) and Green Mountain are really only fetching 18 and 22 times next year’s profit targets, respectively. That may not seem cheap, but keep in mind that The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) is also treading at 18 times next year’s income estimates, and the cola giant’s top-line growth is in the low single digits. Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) is growing a bit faster than that, but it’s not as fast as Green Mountain despite trading at a hefty 24 times next year’s earnings.
SodaStream makers and Keurig single-serve brewers are both cool and hot right now. Investors betting against them may want to check the temperature if they don’t want to get burned again.
