I used to just pass them over when shopping for a drink at my local convenience store.

Now, it’s the first place I look when I’m thirsty.

I drink one just about every day. I’m drinking one as I write this.

I’m talking about energy drinks.

They’re now just as commonplace in grocery stores or gas stations as soda and beer.

And there’s a reason for it.

Because they sell … and sell a lot.

Energy drink market sales were $53 billion in 2019 and they are projected to grow even more in the coming years.

Using Money & Markets Chief Investment Strategist Adam O’Dell’s stock rating system, we’ve uncovered an energy drink stock that will give investors like you and me double-digit profits, thanks to the surge in energy drink sales.

I’ll get to that in a moment.

But first, I’ll explain where the energy drink market is going.

What to Do With This Monster

According to its 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Monster sales increased 16% from 2015 to 2019.

Energy drinks are becoming more recession-proof as a consumer staple — Monster’s annual sales are a testament to that.

With energy drinks becoming a daily luxury that people will indulge in, even if they are pinching pennies elsewhere, those sales will rise from here.

That means a profit for the company — and even better gains for you.

Several analysts have a price target on Monster of between $90 and $94 a share. At its current price of around $81 per share, reaching that price target would yield a 16% gain.

We think it can go even higher.

Energy drink stocks will be profitable for investors, and Monster Beverage Corp. is the best way to do it.
