Short Interest is Tapering Off in These 5 Nasdaq Stocks

#4. Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST)

– Change in short interest in the period of June 15-June 30: -57.6%

– Investors with long positions as of March 31: 31

– Aggregate value of investors’ holdings as of March 31: $1.02 Billion

Short interest for Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) declined by 5.72 million shares during the two-week period ending June 30 to 4.21 million shares. The number of asset managers from our system with stakes in Monster Beverage remained unchanged at 31 during the first quarter, whereas the aggregate value of those stakes rose by 20% quarter-over-quarter to $1.02 billion. The energy drink company has seen the value of its stock jump by 7% so far in 2016. Earlier this month, analysts at Wells Fargo downgraded Monster Beverage to ‘Market Perform’ from ‘Outperform’ in anticipation of a weak second-quarter earnings report. Precisely, Wells Fargo analysts say near-term upside potential is limited because of soft second-quarter U.S. results based on survey that suggest 4.3% of dollar sales growth for Monster in the U.S. convenience-store channel, delays in launching new innovation, as well as ongoing macroeconomic challenges in international markets caused by the so-called Brexit and a slowing Chinese economy. Stephen Mandel’s Lone Pine Capital acquired a new stake of 1.11 million shares of Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) during the first quarter.
