A Monster of a Deal

Thanks to all of the young furs out there (and young folks in general) you have made energy drinks a very lucrative market. For the past few weeks I have been watching Monster stock. It had been doing VERY well this year. I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and ride it in hopes it would continue its upward movement. There were even rumors that Coke was looking to buy them out. So I bought 100 shares on Friday. This morning I checked the price and it was heading down a bit. Oh well. I'm in it for the long haul anyway. A few cents lower or higher is to be expected. And then the news broke that Coke, in fact, was going to make a bid for them. Boom! The stock exploded +10%. I bailed. Sure, the stock could still go even higher, but it's rare that you can make that much in just a couple of days, at least for us lowly little investors just trying to get enough to be able to retire. It really is like Vegas. I hit the number in roulette, so now I'm heading for the doors.
