And the growth is slated to continue, with earnings forecasted to climb 57% in its current year on 21% higher sales. Looking ahead to FY24, expectations allude to a further 70% jump in earnings paired with a 7% revenue increase.

Value-conscious investors may be steered away from MNST shares, with the current 35.5X forward earnings multiple sitting on the higher end of the spectrum. Still, investors have had little issue forking up the premium given the company’s growth trajectory.
