Celsius Holdings Inc. (CELH) shares rallied 4.8% in the last trading session to close at $103.61. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 49.9% gain over the past four weeks.
Continued optimism surrounding Celsius Holdings’ strategic distribution deal with PepsiCo, appears to be driving the stock. The distribution deal initially shifts the current U.S. distribution of Celsius to PepsiCo's solid capacities. Apart from this, PepsiCo will make an investment in Celsius to fuel its growth agenda, as part of the agreement. The prospects of the deal look encouraging, given the combination of Celsius’ robust brand momentum and PepsiCo’s strong portfolio and go-to-market capacities.
This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.08 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +60%. Revenues are expected to be $143.78 million, up 121% from the year-ago quarter.
Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.
