Monster Beverage Corporation Research Report

Analysts are expecting an acquisition of Monster, the largest US-based energy drinks manufacturer by sales volume, by either The Coca-Cola Company or Pepsico, Inc. Although there are no solid reports about the takeover, it remains as a speculation among investors who are quite bullish about the company. Monster's shares have been trading at unusual volumes in recent sessions, and this uptrend is expected to extend until the company reports its fiscal quarter ending December 2012 on February 21, 2013. Whether or not a takeover happens, Monster may do well on its own as the company is expected to roll out more products this year. Monster is also poised for growth as it continues to penetrate the international market. Last year, the company's expansion was somewhat concentrated in Asia and Central America. Monster's forthcoming international sales report is expected to rise further than its third quarter 2012 revenue because of its growing market share in strategic regions.

Pepsico, Inc. Research Report

After surpassing expectations for its fourth quarter 2012, Pepsi has been turning the heads of investors and analysts to include the bullish stock in their portfolios. Despite Pepsi's already huge market share, the company reported a 5% organic growth during the fourth quarter. Some of the markets which have been ramping up Pepsi's revenues include Russia, Mexico and Asia. The company is expected to post better performance in the coming quarters as it continues to develop new products, as well as create partnerships in Asia. Pepsi is expecting further growth that is stimulated by a juice and tea venture in China and a healthy snack line of chips and salsa for US. Pepsi, one of the world's largest soda makers, has been boosting shareholder value by increasing its annual dividend payout to $2.27 per share starting on the second half of this year. The company is also planning to return $6.4 billion of dividends and share repurchases to its shareholders.
