Soros Buys SodaStream Shares While Boosting Teva Stake

Soros Fund Management LLC, the family office of billionaire George Soros, bought shares of SodaStream International Ltd. in the first quarter, the Israeli maker of home soda machines that’s plunged 18 percent this year.

The firm, based in New York, bought $24.3 million of shares of Lod, Israel-based SodaStream. The holding makes up about 0.3 percent of its $9.3 billion U.S. stock portfolio, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday. Soros also increased his stake in Israeli drugmaker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., already its largest holding, to 5.8 percent of the total.
