Stifel Nicolaus pegs Monster Beverage (MNST +0.3%) as one of the most likely companies to jump into the special dividend pool. The company doesn't pay a regular dividend so the move will have a bit of extra meaning for shareholders.

    actually it will have no meaning for investors other than having to pay taxes on the cash payment. A special dividend provides no economic value to an investor.

    Not going to happen anyway. Given the lawsuits and opening in new markets that's where that cash is going. CEO Rodney Sacks has pretty much used cash to buy back shares which MNST just recently expanded to another $250 million in buying company stock.
