Best Stocks To Buy For 2014
In 2013, the stock markets had another wild ride. This seems to be the case every year since 2008. Between the eurozone crisis on a daily basis, politicians caring more about their own agendas than the public’s, and also then Steve Jobs passing away; there were plenty of stories in 2013.
For this article, I would like to get into how I think some stocks will perform and the markets as a whole will perform, both positive and negative.
Here is what to look for in 2014:

- [By Matthews]Hansen’s. What we like about Hansen’s is that this is the true expression of growth. HANS is slated to hit another 15% growth rate this year. The company has its issues, such as an undiversified lineup of growth engines, stiff competition and heavy valuations. Yet, we believe that the company is still just scratching the surface of international expansion that can be a huge growth engine as it continues to develop its Monster brand name as well as other beverage items. Look for HANS to continue to attract money flow as investors continue to seek growth. We have a $120 PT.
Target: $102.50, $112.50, and $120
- [By Louis Navellier]Hansen Natural Corporation (NASDAQ:HANS) is an 80-year-old beverage producer with great 21st century appeal. Hansen boasts 30 fruit and spice soda flavors, vitamin waters, teas, lemonades and — of course — the wildly successful Monster Energy drink line. As Hansen keeps its customers hydrated, HANS keeps its investors happy. What’s really exciting about this stock is that even though energy drinks are well established in the U.S., many emerging markets remain untapped. As a result, Hansen has been going full tilt with its Monster Energy drink, launching the popular beverage in Greece, Cyprus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Portugal and Colombia in just the past eight months! The company also has plans to continue its conquest of Central and Eastern Europe, South America and Asia.
