We recently reached out to our retailer contacts to get an updated read on recent performance of Monster. Based on retailer feedback, we see a negative risk/reward for the stock ahead of Q4 results on 3/1 given: (1) soft scanner data, particularly in Dec & Jan as energy sales are definitely soft compared to other categories according to one retailer while another reported Monster started 2017 off horribly; (2) Java production issues persist; (3) poor retailer feedback on the rollout of Mutant continues in part based on the view that Coca-Cola (KO) is not executing on all cylinders and consumer reception of the product has not shown it to be anything great and certainly at this point is no threat to Mt. Dew; and (4) retailers modest outlook for Monster in 2017 (low- to mid-single digit growth on average).
