07:34 EDTKOCoca-Cola: Change in exchange rates to have unfavorable impact on op. income
The company says "Based on recent changes to the Venezuelan currency exchange rate mechanisms, we changed the exchange rate we used to remeasure our Venezuelan subsidiary’s financial statements into U.S. dollars... Based on our current projections, we expect this change in exchange rates to have an unfavorable currency impact on our operating income for the remainder of 2014. Additionally, the Venezuelan government issued a new law on fair pricing establishing the maximum profit a business can earn in Venezuela. We are currently evaluating the impact the new law may have on our 2014 operating results. The bottling transactions completed in 2013 are anticipated to have an unfavorable 1% structural impact on both our full-year 2014 net revenues and operating income, with the full impact occurring in the first half of the year. Currency exchange rates are expected to have an unfavorable impact on our reported results in 2014. Based on current spot rates, our existing hedge positions, and the cycling of our prior year rates, we estimate currency will be an approximate 7% headwind on our full-year operating income, and an approximate 7% headwind on our second quarter operating income. This outlook reflects the negative impact of the Venezuela devaluation, partially offset by slight improvements in other currencies as compared to the outlook we provided at the time of our year-end 2013 earnings release."

11:11 EDTKOMonster Beverage climbs after added to Citi Focus List
Energy drink maker Monster Beverage (MNST) is advancing after Citi added the stock to its Focus List, saying that the company has many potential positive catalysts. WHAT'S NEW: Monster's stock can rise significantly from current levels, as it has many potential positive catalysts that can kick in over the next 12 months, Citi analyst Wendy Nicholson wrote in a note to investors today. Specifically, the company can enter new markets such as China and its overseas profit margins may increase, the analyst stated, adding that Monster may also sign new distribution deals in foreign markets and launch new products. Other potential catalysts include signs that the distribution of the company's drinks in the U.S. has become smoother in the wake of its transition to Coca-Cola's (KO) system and the possibility that the soda giant will increase its stake in Monster, the analyst believes. Monster could initiate large share repurchases, given the huge amount of cash it received from Coca-Cola, the analyst stated. She predicted that the company's earnings before interest and taxes would grow at an "outsized" compound annual growth rate of 12% over the next five years and kept a $155 price target and Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: UBS on June 12 upgraded Monster to Buy from Neutral, saying that the short-term risks facing the company were already priced into the stock, while the beverage maker's U.S. and foreign growth outlook is strong. The analyst predicted that Coca-Cola would increase its stake in the company to 25% from its current 16.7% level. Also on June 12, Monster and Coca-Cola announced that the acquisition of the 16.7% stake in Monster by Coke had been closed. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Monster climbed 4% to $132.
