    • Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR +4.7%) are higher after the company adds Dr Pepper to the lineup for Keurig Cold.

    • Tilson famously called Keurig Cold "vaporware" in his bull thesis on SODA.
    • The Israeli company for its part seems to be looking beyond soda based on an investor presentation last November.
