Shares of Keurig Dr Pepper Inc (NYSE:KDP) are down 3.34% this morning, last seen at $27.84. The soft drink giant reported strong fourth quarter and full-year results, with earnings that ran in-line analysts’ estimates. Meanwhile, KDP expects net sales growth in 2020, as they prepare for a long-term partnership with Nestle USA that will allow the company to manufacture and distribute Starbucks-branded k-cups around North America.

While they have yet to chime in this morning, heading into today analysts were mixed regarding the equity's future. This is per the seven out of 10 that recommend a tepid “hold” rating and three that carry a "strong buy," combined with the stock's average 12-month price target of $31.43, which stands 10% above current levels. 

Short interest on KDP rose 5.1% during the most recent reporting period, and now accounts for 13.9% of the stock's total available float. In simpler terms, at the coffee stock's average pace of daily trading, it would take shorts 15 days to buy back their bearish bets.

On the charts, KDP has seen a drastic pullback within the past few days. Following today's drop, Keurig stock is eyeing its foruth-straight close lower, and is back trading near its mid-January lows. Year-to-date, however, the security clings to a 6% lead.
