3 Reasons to Buy Coffee Holding Company

Today, Austin discusses three reasons to consider buying Coffee Holding (Nasdaq: JVA  ) . The company’s interests will continue to serve those of the investor, since the top two executives own almost 20% of the company. Even better, the company's low forward P/E gives it a very affordable price, even if the anticipated sales estimates end up being too optimistic. And a perceived weakness could be its biggest strength. A huge portion of Coffee Holding's business comes from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Obviously, more flexibility would benefit the company, but analysts expect Green Mountain to grow EPS at 33% each of the next five years. Austin remains bearish on the company's overall potential, but he's still found plenty of room for optimism. 

If the risk with Coffee Holding is too much for you, I suggest you consider a more stable growth story such as The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012.
