E GURU Energy Drink Stock Up +300% In Just 2 Months

Back when energy drinks took off the Monster Beverage Corporation (MNST) stock price increased from $0.0688 at the end of August 2002 to its current level of $94.99 – an amazing 137,967% increase- yes, 137,967% – in 18.5 years. Were we to go back just 10 years the stock has increased an impressive 971% over that period.

  • Might similar gains be made in the GURU Organic Energy Corp. (TSX: GURU; OTC: GUROF) plant-based drink stock price in the coming years?
  • Might GURU get bought out in a multi-million dollar deal by a major drink company?

For example, last year PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) acquired Rockstar Energy Beverages for $3.85 billion and the Coca-Cola Company (KO) acquired a 16.7% share in Monster for $2.15 billion back in 2014.
