The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin discusses why shares of SodaStream are soaring this morning. One look at its results gives an easy understanding why -- profit spiked 84% on huge revenue growth. Total revenue of $88 million came in way above analysts' estimates of $74 million. The company saw double the revenue in Asia and almost twice the revenue in the Americas. SodaStream has been a hotly debated stock on the markets. Many have called it a fad, while others have praised the razor-and-blades model that encourages repeat purchases.
Our chief rule breaker has been outspoken about the stock, mentioning that it could be a big multibagger for the early investor. You, too, can "Discover the Next Rule-Breaking Multibagger" in his team's newest special free report. Click here to read all about it.
