Shares of SodaStream International rose on media reports that the upstart beverage company was in talks to be acquired by PepsiCo 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.

Also, our analysts get into four stocks that made big moves on the market today, and pull out two stocks they've picked as the ones they'll be watching very closely in the coming week.
