Goldman Sachs says Monster Beverage (MNST +1.8%) is taking down rivals in sales at convenience stores despite negative headlines swirling around the company over potential safety issues. The firm notes Monster's sales are up 23.6%, almost double the pace Red Bull is growing. With its drinks only containing on average about half as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, analysts rate the chances the company coasts through a regulatory probe unscathed as pretty decent.
