- SodaStream (NASDAQ:SODA) is upgraded by Barclays to an Equal Weight rating from Underweight.
- The company's Q2 results topped expectations yesterday and execs were full of confidence over a potential competing product from Coca-Cola and Keurig Green Mountain (NASDAQ:GMCR) which they seem to hint won't meet consumer expectations.
- CEO Daniel Birnbaum:"So here there is a philosophical departure between us and say Coca-Cola or Green Mountain and we have to play this out. First of all, I’d love to see their product and I don’t know why it’s been delayed, but we want to see the product, we want to see that it works, because we can also tell stories."

- Dougherty (apparently citing IRI) reports Keurig (GMCR -2%) saw 11.5% Y/Y K-Cup unit growth over the 4 weeks ending June 15. That's an improvement from the 8.9% reported in the prior 4-week period, but still slower than the 15.4% growth seen in the period before that one.
- Expectations are high following a 59% YTD rally fueled by strong earnings reports reports and the Coca-Cola deal.
- Keurig's portion pack sales rose 13% Y/Y in the March quarter to $898.2M, thanks largely to a 15% increase in sales volume.

- The International Coffee Organization forecasts H1 coffee production will be down close to 5%.
- The wildcard: An early outbreak of El Nino could also disrupt crops across South America.
