SodaStream in focus after stumble in U.S.

|About: SodaStream International (SODA)|By:, SA News Editor

SodaStream (SODA) is in focus after a stumble in the U.S. drives home that the company is having some trouble penetrating the region to the same degree as other markets.

Guidance from SodaStream is for a FY14 revenue to increase by 15% to $647.11M vs. $639.3M consensus.

The company sees FY14 net income improving by 3% Y/Y to $42M.

What to watch: Weakness by SodaStream in the U.S. is almost sure to drive out more speculation on a major beverage player buying out the Western Europe juggernaut. Pepsico (PEP) and Starbucks (SBUX) top the list.
