    This should be down farther.

    Bad Earnings report, High PE, Overinflated market.

    Half the companies that met or exceeded revs and EPS still dropped like 6% AH, This stock is barely down.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Did you listen to their CC? It was full of Nielsen reports of their product taking market share in lots of markets. The miss is mostly due to the litigation and senator investigations which will turn out to be an unfounded witch hunt and misuse of taxpayers money. Their product contains about half the caffeine of a Starbucks coffee. Despite the miss, growth is excellent.

    • I agree with the no debt and some growth. The PE is high, even without the court costs they still would have missed. India is not a great place for their product, big population but very poor and their tastes are much different than the US i.e. they drink hot tea and not coffee so much. I don't think they will sell too much there. With the latest health food craze there drink popularity is fading, and gaining market share of an overall falling market. They have to expand just to keep some growth.

      I do drink the Rehab drinks though

      Sentiment: Sell

    • The earnings were great... court related news was positive.. cost therein accounted for the earnings miss...gaing market share.. still offers product in 1/3 the countries of red bull... and trades at valuations similar to coke KO... The most important thing is their brand value... mnst could launch a multitude of productssuvh as monster cola, a gatoradesque power drink, energy bars etc.. list goes on...same cannot be said for KO or PEP... Their names are solely tied to the underlying caarbonated beverage...

    • The company has no debt, high growth, a global brand and major new markets. "It's not the news itself but how people react to the news." -Bernard Baruch

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
