••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Guru Investment Theses on SodaStream International Ltd.

Baron Funds Comments on SodaStream International - Feb 21, 2014

Although SodaStream International Ltd. (SODA), which makes a home carbonation product, reported mixed third quarter results with guidance in line with expectations, flavor sales in the U.S. were below expectations. We believe investors wanted to see more strength around the holiday season, and shares were down 20.4% in the fourth quarter. However, we see this as a short term inventory correction following some strong quarters. With 1% U.S. household penetration and a large global opportunity, we see SodaStream riding a sustainable growth trend and benefiting with increased profitability in the coming years.

Baron Funds Comments on SodaStream International Ltd. - Nov 22, 2013



SodaStream International Ltd. (SODA) is the world's leading manufacturer, distributor and marketer of home carbonation systems, with an installed base of about 4.5 million consumers. SodaStream brands are sold in over 50,000 retail stores in 42 countries. The SodaStream system enables consumers to carbonate water and to flavor carbonated beverages at home as an alternative to purchasing pre-packed bottles or cans. This has many important benefits to the consumer, including cost savings, convenience (no hassle with bottles, saves space) and being environmentally friendly (reducing the carbon footprint created by the bottling supply chain).

It manufactures its own reusable carbonation bottles, which are the only bottles intended for use with its machines. It faces competition at several levels.
