DPS versus HANS: Dare to Take the Beverage Challenge



June 27, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: DPS , MNST

HANS just lost almost 7% of its stock price value yesterday.  HANS stock price fell from hits 52 week high of about $68 to now $29.

DPS dropped as well..About %1.6    52-week high of $30 down to $22


1)  HANS  Market Cap  2.77 Billion   (versus)  

     DPS  Market Cap  5.62 Billion

This in spite of HANS share price being more expensive.

2)  HANS sells "Monster Energy" drink.

     DPS introduces this year "Venom Energy" drink.

Comparing the 2 drinks is ultimately a VHS or BETA   / HD or BLU RAY market analysis that is impossible to predict which energy drink will do best over the long haul due to who markets their product and keeps costs/pricing under control better.

Bottles versus Cans (argument)

Why is DPS's energy drink better than HANS?

A)  VENOM  is resealable as it is in a resealable bottle rather than a 1-shot Can.

B)  VENOM gives you slightly more for your money than MONSTER.

MONSTER = 16 oz Can.
VENOM =   16.9 oz Aluminum Bottle.

3)  HANS headquartered in Corona (formerly) possibly now in TAXATION FEST  Southern California

DPS  Headquartered in Business Friendly, Low Tax Haven, TEXAS

4) HANS missed their last earnings report by 3 cents.

DPS's Quarterly Report  MET expectations or at worst slipped expectations by 1 penny depending on what analyst you use. 

5)  DPS raised their earnings per share growth for the end of the year.

HANS???  HANS???  You there HANS???  helllo???  Earth to HANS??

Tell ya what... here's my...


For every time HANS produces a better Earnings Report + Share Price Growth than DPS,  I siphon DPS shares and pour the money into HANS.   For everytime DPS does better than HANS (earnings report), I put my money into DPS and if I have any cash in HANS at all, I siphon the Shares from HANS and pour it into DPS.

I'll do that in 10% increments.   Since DPS did better than HANS.... So far it's:

DPS:  100%  fully Invested
HANS:   0%

I'll update the challenge every earnings report.

Both drinks are horrible for you. Both companies are overvalued.

Both bottles and cans can be recycled.
