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 outperformed the industry in the past year, given the solid momentum in its energy drinks business amid a challenging beverage industry. Further, the company is optimistic about its alignment with Coca-Cola bottlers globally, which has broadened its distribution network. It is also on track with the expansion in non-traditional channels along with e-commerce capabilities. Moreover, the company benefits from its product innovation strategy and regular product launches. Though earnings beat estimates in the second quarter of 2018, sales lagged estimates for the third straight quarter. Top-line results were marred by soft revenues in its Strategic Brands and Other segments, alongside the adverse impact from the adoption of accounting standards. Additionally, increased raw material costs have been denting the company’s margins for a while now, which is likely to continue due to the recent tariffs on aluminum." (10/15/2018) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We lift our FY19-20 EPS est. by ~3% following MNST’s upbeat shareholder meeting, our positive US survey, and strong US Nielsen data. Mgmt was bullish on the cos. growth prospects, acknowledged the recent US acceleration, and importantly intends to take price later this year to address recent GM % pressure. Our survey suggests increased consumption among the core energy drink consumer is helping to fuel growth. Reit. Buy w/shares trading at 19.5x EV/EBITDA."
