The hot rumor on Tuesday was that Coca-Cola in interested in buying SodaStream (SODA); today's hot speculation is that PepsiCo (PEP) is in negotiations to acquire the Israeli company for $2B or more, well above its market cap of $1.43B. PepsiCo could even be willing to pay as much as $95 a share, or 37% more than SodaStream's close of $69.35 yesterday. However, the latter also wants to check its options with Coca Cola.

    At forward PE of 22, I don't think (SODA) has reacted enough to the rumor.
