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 topped the industry in the past month backed 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.
