The maker of Monster Energy drinks is high on a sugar rush. The Corona, Calif., company’s stock price has risen 25% to $55 since the beginning of the year. Monster’s introduction of new brews and entrance into overseas markets has kept consumers guzzling, even as health consciousness hurts growth in the U.S. A landmark 2015 deal with Coca-Cola—in which Monster traded its sodas, teas, and juices, along with a 17% stake for $2 billion plus a bevy of energy beverages, for access to the pop giant’s global distribution network—set Monster up for international success.
