I have been buyer off and on over the years. Back on. Great quarter-coming into their strong seasonal strength. KO will buy Monster-eventually. They know they need some juice in their company. Like Apple buying Beats-Coke will buy Monster. Its the cool factor.
Coke is not going there. Coke and Pepsi don't need to acquire. Do you have any idea how many brands are in the woodwork? Monster's PE is too high and the market cap is in bubble territory. Upgrades are good for sellers.
