The following video is part of our nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show, with host Chris Hill talking with Ron Gross, James Early, and Charly Travers. This week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled a proposal to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers of more than 16 ounces. In this segment, the guys analyze what it means for beverage giants Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and Starbucks and share why Monster Beverage may be a hidden winner in the proposal.
