The Big Soda Showdown

The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill, and analysts Jason Moser and Isaac Pino dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Shares of SodaStream International (NASDAQ: SODA  ) rose on media reports that the upstart beverage company was in talks to be acquired by PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP  ) for $2 billion. Pepsi refuted the reports, calling them "completely and utterly untrue." Despite the denial, investors seem to like the idea of a potential deal. In this installment of Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Isaac Pino discuss the competitive landscape in the beverage industry, the likelihood of Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) or PepsiCo acquiring SodaStream, as well as SodaStream's long-term outlook.

SodaStream's carbonation technology sounds simple, but this razor-and-blade company offers an intriguing opportunity for growth that could very well disrupt the soda industry. The Motley Fool's premium report on SodaStream explains the opportunities, as well as the risks, in the company. The report comes with a year's worth of updates, so just click here to get started.
