This Company Is a Monster

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Austin Smith and Andrew Tonner discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin and Andrew talk about a beverage company that's bringing supercharged growth to a normally sleepy sector: non-alcoholic beverages. It's no surprise that such frenetic growth belongs to energy-drink manufacturer Monster Beverages (NAS: MNST) . The company has no debt, almost $800 million in cash, a sterling brand, and huge growth estimates. It remains happily independent from brewing behemoths Coca-Cola (NYS: KO) and PepsiCo (NYS: PEP) and shows no signs of slowing down. As a shareholder of both Coke and Pepsi, Austin would love to see one of the big companies acquire Monster outright but hasn't heard of any such takeover on the horizon.

The Motley Fool Rule Breakers service brought Monster Beverages onto Austin's radar, and you can "Discover the Next Rule-Breaking Multibagger" in our latest report. You'll find out about a revolutionary medical-procedure company that's about to become a crucial support system for our aging population. Read more about it by clicking here
