  • The hot rumor of the day is that Coca-Cola has an interest in making a bid for SodaStream (SODA +1.5%). Though there's nothing substantial to the chatter, shares are higher on the day to follow up on yesterday's rally inspired by a price target increase from Barclays. [View news story]
    I guess if the price is right Sodastream might sell.However
