Stock the Week: Hansen Natural Corp

Hansen is a maker of sodas, juices, iced teas and smoothies.

You've probably never heard the name, but most likely you have seen (or tasted) their products.

We like the Monster energy drink.

It's not so much a drink as a jolt of lightening to the cranium.

We're long the stock with a HOLD recommendation for Hansen (HANS) based on rapidly improving fundamentals:
Net income grew to $15.2 million, or 63 cents per share, from $5.1 million a year ago. Revenue jumped 86 percent to $85.4 million from $46.1 million last year. Gross margins improved to 52.6 percent from 45.1 percent a year ago, while selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales fell...
Find the energy to buy this darling of a small cap trading at a slight premium to the S+P, that's what we say.
