    Twinkies in play? Business professor Anthony Sarbino tells MarketWatch (audio) that Hostess will likely survive its 2nd round of bankruptcy due in part to the "immeasurable" power of its brand names that are sure to draw interest from food giants. Potential acquirers: KFT, SLE, SJM.

    SodaStream (SODA +5.4%) CEO Daniel Birnbaum tells CNBC that American consumers are ready for "fizzling" ice tea and lemonade after seeing the dramatic results in global markets when carbonation was added to popular drinks. The new partnership between his firm and Kraft (KFT +1%) allows consumers to use the SodaStream carbonation model to produce versions of Country Time lemonade and Crystal Light iced tea.

    Financial stocks (XLF +2.5%) lead today's early advance, with Bank of America (BAC +4.2%), Citigroup (C +6.4%) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM +5.1%) leading the effort. In contrast, defensive-oriented consumer staples lag the broader market, as the likes of Procter & Gamble (PG +0.2%) and Kraft (KFT +0.1%) display only limited strength.

    The new Kraft (KFT +0.5%) team looks a lot like the old team, as it appoints management for the two companies to be created in its planned breakup. Chairman and CEO Irene Rosenfield will head of its global snacks company, and Kraft Foods North America chief Anthony Vernon will run the North American grocery company.

    Morgan Stanley’s typically bearish Adam Parker makes a pitch for buying consumer staples stocks (XLP -0.7%) such as Kraft (KFT) and Colgate-Palmolive (CL). Staples stocks are good at playing defense - an important attribute when growth is hard to find and yield is prized - the stocks are relatively diversified, they're cheaply valued, and margin expectations are super-low.

    Dow dividend stocks are a sound way to grow income when there are few other options, Scott Schermerhorn says: "You're getting paid double with the dividend yields of these companies than with their own bonds." Two of three Dow pharmas - JNJ and MRK - make his grade, plus two of three Dow consumer staples stocks - PG and KFT - and "best managed" bank JPM.

    The keyword used to be "synergy" - the justification for a host of mergers with varying success rates. In 2011, it's the spinoff that's in: Twenty public companies this year have announced they're breaking pieces off, including Abbott Labs (ABT), Kraft (KFT), ConocoPhillips (COP) and Sara Lee (SLE). And whatever the reason, Dan Primack says, it's good for the economy.

    Research firm SymphonyIRI estimates retail coffee sales rose 23% Y/Y in a recent 13-week period, to $1.08B. SJM's Folgers was the top-selling brand, followed by KFT's Maxwell House. Single-cup servings such as those from GMCR made up just 11% of sales, suggesting there's still plenty of room for growth.

    Pepsico (PEP +3.3%) CFO Hugh Johnston dismisses the idea of splitting the company in two, saying he doesn't see the value in it. Struggles in Pepsico's drinks business while its Frito-Lay snacks business performs well have increased calls for a breakup patterned after Kraft (KFT) and Sara Lee (SLE). But PEP's Q3 earnings were a pleasant surprise in a weak economy.

    Production of robusta coffee looks set to ramp up right along with arabica beans, as coffee prices could move even lower with stockpiles continuing to recover from last year's shocks. Will Starbucks (SBUX +0.3%) follow the path of SJM and KFT with lower consumer prices or reap margin gains as it restocks inventory?
