UPDATE: Morgan Stanley Downgrades Monster Beverage


In a report released Monday, Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian downgrades Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST) from Overweight to Equal-weight, while reducing its price target from $82 to $75.

Analysts at Morgan Stanley downgrade the energy drink producer due to reduced retail sales domestically in Q2, while brands such as Rehab, Lo-Carb and Absolute Zero have been underperforming in recent quarters.

Morgan Stanley believes the market has reduced Monster's value due to a large amount of regulatory concerns, margin expansion potential and operation improvement potential.
