Trifecta Stocks Portfolio Manager Bryan Ashenberg, CFA offers viewers his current take on Monster Beverage (MNST). In April, Ashenberg recommended investors consider buying shares of Monster.

Monster continues to take market share even in a slowing environment, but given the fact that managementâ¿¿s sales commentary spooked investors on its first quarter earnings call, the Trifecta Stocks team decided to be protective, lock in some gains, and take some off the table.
