Credit Suisse Wednesday initiated coverage of Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST) with an Outperform rating and a target price of $82.

Steib cites key growth drivers being an attractive channel mix, leadership in one of the most attractive beverage categories and favorable socioeconomic and demographic trends in the U.S. and international expansion.

Monster Beverage shares closed Tuesday at $66.74.
