What are Wall Street analysts saying about Monster Beverage stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Monster Beverage stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Monster Beverage surpassed the industry in the past three months, driven by solid momentum in energy drinks business amid a challenging industry backdrop. The company is also optimistic about its alliance with Coca-Cola’s bottlers globally, which broadened its distribution network. Moreover, the company’s top and bottom lines outpaced estimates and improved year over year in third-quarter 2018. This marked its second straight earnings beat, while sales reverted to positive surprise trend after three consecutive misses. The top line benefited from solid sales at Monster Energy Drinks segment and advance purchases made by customers due to a pre-announced price hike. However, sales were adversely impacted by foreign currency translations. Moreover, increased raw material costs are persistently hurting margins, which is likely to continue in quarters ahead. Nevertheless, robust performance at its brands in 2018 is commendable." (11/14/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We lift our FY19-20 EPS ests. ~1% post a solid 3Q18, incl. org sales of <12% (ex-sell-in), which came in ahead of JEF/Street (+9-11%) and drove the EPS beat ($0.50 vs. $0.46). Oct. sales update of ~9.5% adj. was slightly below expectations and KO's (owns < 20% of MNST) intent to launch a Coca-Cola branded energy drink in Apr. '19 is likely to weigh on sentiment; however, at 18.5x EV/ULFCF (both in-line with KO), shares look attractive."" (11/8/2018)
