In today's edition of "Talking Stocks," analyst Austin Smith takes a look at why Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (Nasdaq: GMCR ) still has a 20% short interest. After falling so much in price, some could easily claim that the company is wandering into value stock territory, and with huge growth rates to boot. But the looming dark cloud of patent expirations still hangs menacingly over shares. With grocers from Kroger (NYSE: KR ) to Safeway (NYSE: SWY ) now selling their own private label K-Cups, the doom and gloom may have come earlier than expected. At these prices, Austin isn't willing to go thumbs-up or thumbs-down on the company since the future remains uncertain.
Green Mountain Coffee isn't the only company that's been crushed by cheaper manufacturing elsewhere. Just ask any domestic manufacturer how they've been affected (if they're still around) by cheap Chinese imports. Fortunately for investors, "The Future Is Made in America." Domestic manufacturing is poised to once again become the investment driver of the world, and all because of one disruptive technology.
