Hansen Natural Corp blows Dr. Pepper Snapple out of the water. . .
Hey, I am not a dishonest investor. I can see when and how I am wrong when I am wrong.
Dr. Pepper Snapple's frightening earnings report is so frightening to me because of the fact that it's non-carbonated portion of the portfolio fell in volume more than twice the carbonated!
When you pin your hopes on DPS's wide array of juice drinks to carry the company forward to some good (albeit slow) growth.... and they totally bomb... That's just not cool.
I know I said I'd siphon shares of DPS and pour them into HANS and any (idiot) would do that.
Problem is that HANS has skyrocketed so much in the past few days and I have no idea if the share price has peaked or where the peak on the thing is. Another concern is that I've already chosen CCBEF (Clearly Canadian) as my "Handcuff" awhile back. I'm invested 1,000 shares into Clearly Canadian because I am a huge believer now in their C.E.O. Bobby G.
Bobby G's the kinda nutcase that a dying company needs to achieve a successful turnaround.
HANS just scares me a bit with it's up $60, down $21, back up $27 roller coaster. Exactly WHAT is HANS worth? I can not even take a gander.
What I do know about HANS is this crazy "MONSTER Energy Drink" is basically replacing Coffee itself as the morning drink of choice. Seriously. It's that insanely popular.
Monster Energy Drink is electric. It's huge.
So, before I fulfill my DPS - HANS Challenge I will need to do some more research into HANS and I will need to digest DPS's upcoming conference call.
It is interesting that DPS is doing real well with Wall Street: Shares up 50 cents. There still are reasons to like DPS, but there seems to be more reasons to Drink Monster.
