Monster Beverage (MNST +2.1%) trades higher as all the dust settles from its roller coaster ride to above $83 on a report Coca-Cola was talking about buying the company. Though Coca-Cola (KO +0.1%) denies being in discussions, sources say the company is wordsmithing a bit after it backed off a proposed deal after shares of MNST ran up 28% lickety-split.
