Monster Beverage (NASDAQ: MNST) stock fell about 6% in the extended trading session as the company missed earnings and sales estimates for the second quarter 2019. The company’s profit for the second quarter of $0.53 per share and revenue of $1.10 billion failed to meet the market’s earnings projection of $0.56 per share and estimated revenue of $1.13 billion.
“We are pleased to report record gross and net sales in the 2019 second quarter, driven by our Reign Total Body Fuel high performance energy drinks, which we launched in the first quarter, as well as growth in our Monster Energy brand energy drinks both domestically and internationally,” said CEO Rodney Sacks.
“Our Monster Energy brand energy drinks were launched in a number of new countries during the quarter in the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean. Later this year we are planning to introduce a number of new Monster Energy brand energy drinks in the United States and in various international markets,” Sacks added.
