Bai Brands explores potential sale, could be valued at over $2B, Reuters says

Privately-held U.S. beverage company Bai Brands has hired JPMorgan to explore a potential sale and reach out to possible buyers, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the situation, who said that Bai could be valued at over $2B including debt. Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) last year bought a minority stake in Bai after signing a distribution deal, though the company has previously expressed wariness of an outright acquisition. Reuters also notes Coca-Cola (KO) and PepsiCo (PEP) as potentially having an interest in Bai. Reference Link

Coca-Cola downgraded following Pepsi results at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel analyst Mark Swartzberg downgraded Coca-Cola (KO) to Hold from Buy. The analyst downgraded the stock after Pepsi (PEP) reported better than expected Q3 results. The analyst says that Coca-Cola's and Pepsi's organic EPS growth appears to be similar, but he believes that Pepsi is less vulnerable to foreign exchange fluctuations. Additionally, he believes that Coca Cola European Bottlers (CCE) is a better investment than Coca-Cola because of the large amount of revenue synergies which that Coca Cola European Bottlers has identified.

AB InBev's goal may be to acquire Coca-Cola, says HSBC
HSBC analyst Anthony Bucalo says SABMiller's (SBMRY) merger with AB InBev (BUD), which its shareholders just approved, will impact "nearly every major company across global beverages," especially Heinenken (HINKY). The combined company "represents a strong vehicle for another transaction" if InBev management chooses to do so, Bucalo tells investors in a research note dated yesterday. The analyst believes AB InBev's ultimate goal is the possible acquisition of The Coca-Cola Company (KO). The entire Coca-Cola bottling system, especially for Mexican giant FEMSA (FMX), is impacted by SABMiller joining with AB InBev, Bucalo contends.
