Goldman Sachs reiterates its Buy rating on Monster Beverage (MNST) heading into the beverage company's analyst day set for tomorrow. The company's presentation will be closely watched to see if a government investigation into the safety of energy drinks will impact it and if consumer demand is still tracking high.

  • Worx energy shot was a failure! You will see those numbers affect next quarter.

     

    International Department is clueless, they spend more than they make! Go ahead look at the International expenses vs sales. HQ International Staff is all wrong, no experience no diversity.

     

    Redbull is making a strong 2013 Global push, beware of the big bad Bull. C'mon they just took a dive from Space! Now these guys got it right! And New Flavors, oh oh could take away shares from Monster.

     

    Energy Drinks in whole is a scary investment. The Fad is wearing down beginning with death toll rising. And soon you may see a College Ban on Energy Drinks as these companies all have College Ambassadors promoting on Campus and mixing with Alcohol.

     

    The trend is a healthier lifestyle for consumers in the 18-35 age demographic. Look for Milk to make a comeback with new Milk based Protein Health Drinks - CorePower, 1source Nutrition, Got Chocolate Milk!

     

    Safe Investing!

  • You couldn't be more wrong BevMan. The company has already basically written off Worx and those numbers are already cooked into the company's numbers. Monster has actually gained market share FASTER than Red Bull and is on pace to take over the number 1 spot within 18 months.

     

    As per your claim that the "fad is wearing down", energy drink sales are still increasing by double digits. Sales have not been slowed because of lawsuits.

     

    Milk making a come back? You can't be serious. With a growing number of people claiming to be lactose intolerant, everyone wanting to go organic, and the growing costs of milk will make most milk based energy drink alternatives too expensive.

  • I would buy (MNST) here. More chances that the presentation will be the catalyst to drive the stock higher.

  • And in my opinion, (MNST) drinks are much tastier than Red Bull.
