    Hitting more stores - looking good

    Vector - MNST is well run and has a great business plan. The company is worth a gold mine. I believe that if PEPSI, COKE, or BUD made an offer over $75 per share, this company would be sold. In any event, its worthy of a long term hold rating and should be in any portfolio. PE is high, but the growth rate is still 3x higher than normal. The beauty is, NO DEBT, LOADS OF EXCESS CASH, AND UNLIMITED MARKET POTENTIAL. If BUD of PEPSI or COKE doesn't buy soon, I WOULD IMAGINE THAT THEY ENTER INTO LICENSING DEALS IN NEW MARKETS. BIG DOUGH FOR MNST.

  • As the anti-energy drink craze bubble pops. Too bad, so sad, the dream of 'shorting this pig to zero' has come crashing down like so many delusional schemes.

  • If its good for the cops, its good for me.

    ANOTHER BAD Article !

    I would disagree. The author conveyed that he was actually taking the strategy of shorting (selling) the put (bullish for the stock) and taking advantage of those who think the stock will fall below 47.50.

    He is trying to make money on the premium. His logic is right and he talks about the psychology AND the bollinger bands. So he put it all together.

    This morning I drank 20 ounces of coffee of the strongest variety, ingesting 500 mg of caffiene. Thats quite about the same as a monster. I feel great, but I also have explosive stools. I didn't need to go to the emergency room, just the room down the hall with all the cold porcelain.

    Asn't this the truth. Look at tguy that was short Herbalife - he covered and went long, and now the stock is up 100%.

  • All this chatter of Einhorn shorting....... Its just an accumulators ploy to confound the unwitting. Believe me, there is accumulating going on here. The earnings call is not far off. Bear in mind that Budweiser is in the hunt for some thing to push into its non-brew outlets as well as pour into its current route system. This is a no-brainer for bud. They need to expand their market reach to demographics that are non-brew, age oriented.

  • Other uses and side effects

    In the United States, guarana has received the designation of "generally recognized as safe" by the American Food and Drug Administration.[17]

    Preliminary research has shown guarana may affect how quickly the body perceives itself to be full. One study showed an average 11.2-pound (5.1-kilogram) weight loss in a group taking a mixture of yerba mate, guarana, and damiana, compared to an average one pound loss in a placebo group after 45 days.[18] Although inconclusive about specific effects due only to guarana, this study differs from another showing no effect on body weight of a formula containing guarana.[19]

    Guarana extract reduced aggregation of rabbit platelets by up to 37 percent below control values and decreased platelet thromboxane formation from arachidonic acid by 78 percent below control values.

    TAURINE Overview Information

    Taurine is an amino acid, a chemical that is a required building block of protein. Taurine is found in large amounts in the brain, retina, heart, and blood cells called platelets. The best food sources are meat and fish.

    You may see taurine referred to as “a conditional amino acid,” to distinguish it from “an essential amino acid.” A “conditional amino acid” can be manufactured by the body, but an “essential amino acid” cannot be made by the body and must be provided by the diet. People who, for one reason or another, cannot make taurine, must get all the taurine they need from their diet or supplements. For example, supplementation is necessary in infants who are not breastfed because their ability to make taurine is not yet developed and cow's milk does not provide enough taurine. So taurine is often added to infant formulas. People who are being tube-fed often need taurine as well, so it is added to the nutritional products that they use. Excess taurine is excreted by the kidneys.

    Some people take taurine supplements as medicine to treat congestive heart failure (CHF), high blood pressure, liver disease (hepatitis), high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia), and cystic fibrosis. Other uses include seizure disorders (epilepsy), autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), eye problems (disorders of the retina), diabetes, and alcoholism. It is also used to improve mental performance and as an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect cells of the body from damage that results from certain chemical reactions involving oxygen (oxidation).

    How does it work?

    Researchers aren’t exactly sure why taurine seems to help congestive heart failure (CHF). There is some evidence that it improves the function of the left ventricle, one of the chambers of the heart. Taurine might also improve heart failure because it seems to lower blood pressure and calm the sympathetic nervous system, which is often too active in people with high blood pressure and CHF. The sympathetic nervous system is the part of the nervous system that responds to stress.
