13:12 EDTKOAnalysts mixed on Monster Beverage following Coke deal
Analysts had mixed outlooks on energy drink maker Monster Beverage (MNST) in notes to investors earlier today. The analyst comments come after last Thursday night’s announcement that Monster had formed a strategic partnership with Coca-Cola, which included Coca-Cola taking a 16.7% stake in the energy drink maker. BEARISH TAKE: Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy downgraded Monster Beverage to Hold from Buy, saying that the stock's valuation "looks full" following its rally on Friday. The potential for a strategic deal is no longer a positive catalyst for Monster's stock, as that catalyst largely played out Friday, Grundy believes. Although Coca-Cola is likely to increase its stake in Monster, it will likely take years to do so, the analyst forecast. Additionally, the growth of the global energy drink space has been slowing in recent months, creating risk for Monster, the analyst believes. However, Grundy did raise his price target on the shares to $95 from $80. BULLISH TAKE: The deal is "a big win" for both Monster and Coca-Cola, but Monster will benefit more, analysts at Wells Fargo contended. The deal should significantly increase Monster's opportunity in international markets, according to the firm. Moreover, Wells believes that the market has historically undervalued Monster's international potential, and it estimates that the company's international business is worth about $65 per share. The firm raised its price target range on the stock to $104-$106 from $79-$81 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. Like Wells Fargo, Credit Suisse expects the deal to accelerate the growth of Monster's international business. Additionally, the firm thinks that Monster could return a significant percentage of the $2.1B it received from Coca-Cola to shareholders, either through share repurchases or a one-time dividend. Credit Suisse increased its price target on Coca-Cola to $98 from $82 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Monster dropped 4% to $89.50. On Thursday the stock closed at $71.65.
