Cramer's Option Play on Monster Beverage
Mad Money's Jim Cramer explains why buying deep-in- the-money call options on Monster Beverage are a more conservative trade than buying the company's stock.

"Mad Money" host Jim Cramer has long liked beverage maker Monster Beverage.

Right now, the beverage sector is doing well and ranks among the best areas of growth. But given the current market environment, Cramer doesn't recommend buying Monster's common stock outright.

In fact, he prefers investors buy deep-in-the-money call options. Cramer thinks it's just a more conservative trade than buying the company's stock.
