Shares of Celsius Holdings (NASDAQ: CELH) were on the move this week after the energy drink maker signed a deal with the Professional Fighters League (PFL) to become its official energy drink partner. Energy drink companies like Red Bull and Monster Beverage have found similar success marketing themselves with MMA leagues and events like the X Games, the extreme sports competition, so it's not surprising to see Celsius following a similar path. According to a press release, the extensive partnership includes PFL fighters becoming brand ambassadors for Celsius, naming rights for the Celsius VIP cageside club, a social media collaboration, and the winner of each match will even drink a Celsius beverage in the PFL Smartcage at every event.
Unprofitable and valued at more than 100 times earnings, Celsius Holdings will spend more on advertising to fuel growth.
Maybe you've dreamed of turning a $10,000 investment into $50,000 but worry it will take too long. In fairness, quintupling your money in the stock market normally does take a long time and there's no guarantee you can make it happen. For example, if you invested $10,000 in an S&P 500 index fund in March 2009 -- nicely timing the bottom of the Great Recession bear market -- it would be worth $50,000 right now over 13 years later.
