Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) stock rose past a key resistance of $88 on Friday. On Monday, the stock accelerated gains in premarket before retreating slightly.

Technically, Monster Beverages has traded past a key resistance at $88, which could become a new support. The stock is retreating after facing resistance close to $90. The established resistance is at $93. The stock could reverse slightly to the support before continuing up to $93. If the current momentum is sustained, the stock could continue higher, up to $97. However, our first target will be $93.

Concluding thoughts

Investors should buy Monster after it finishes the current retracement once it settles at or close to $88. The key target is at $93, but the stock could rise up to $97.
