UPDATE: UBS Downgrades Monster Beverage (MNST) to Neutral Jul 28, 2014 10:43AM

(Updated - July 28, 2014 10:43 AM EDT)

UBS downgraded Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST) from Buy to Neutral with a price target of $73 (from $80). Analyst Stephen Powers said top-line risk now outweighs margin upside.

"Today we downgrade MNST to Neutral in light of decelerating top-line trends (both domestically and abroad), and a valuation that already largely bakes in the company's margin upside. While we have previously been more positive on the stock, recent data points (i.e., last week's C-store data, CCE disclosures, and conversations with industry participants) have all made it more difficult for us to justify a Buy rating," said Powers.

"Fear of a deceleration in MNST's US top line was ignited on MNST's Q1 earnings call when MNST only disclosed +8% all-in April sales growth (attributed to destocking), despite Nielsen data in tracked channels implying double-digits. Since that time, it appears that consumer takeaway has caught up with April's sell-in numbers, rather yhan the reverse, while international growth has slowed (most notably in Europe). We now forecast only +8% US DSD growth through 2015, alongside +15% International. Below the top line, we remain bullish on margins, but our forecasts already imply +240 bps of average annualized margin expansion over the next 10+ years, and assume international profit margins of ~25% by 2025—hardly conservative estimates," he added.
