Joe Magyer of Lakehouse Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on Monster Beverage (Nasdaq: MNST) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2018.

Thesis summary:

Monster Beverage is one of the leading global brands in the fast-growing energy drinks category. The business is gaining share in existing markets, entering new distribution verticals, and entering new geographies. It is also debt-free, capital-light, and significantly profitable with a 36% EBIT margin.

The shares have pulled off their recent highs and the company has taken advantage by repurchasing ~1.6% of the stock thus far in 2018.

Lastly, the business may also be acquired at some point by Coca-Cola, which is thirsty for growth and already has a strategic investment in Monster.
