Look to buy Monster Beverage on a retracement as it breaks key resistance

Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) stock rose past a key resistance of $88 on Friday. On Monday, the stock accelerated gains in premarket before retreating slightly.

In its May 5 financial report, revenue rose to $1.52 billion in the first quarter. The revenue was higher than estimates of $1.43 billion. However, the diluted earnings per share were $0.55, lower than $0.59 in the prior year. The earnings also missed expectations of $0.61 per share. The stock has been surging since then.

On Wall Street, Monster Energy has been rated a buy by 24 analysts. The rating has held since April, which has coincided with strong stock gains. The analysts have a price target of $100, which represents a 12% upside potential from the current $89. The consensus low estimate is $88, which implies that the stock has already surpassed the local bottom price.

Besides, despite the mixed earnings, Monster remains on a bull run. The stock is up 7.87% in the month and is poised for further gains after breaking above the $88 level.
