Every day, the sun rises on Wall Street, and a plethora of professional analysts wake to issue new opinions on stocks. Here at the Fool, we use our "This Just In" column to examine some of these picks -- and the track records of the companies behind them -- so individuals can make better investing decisions.

In addition to following professional banks, anyone can use Motley Fool CAPS to monitor the collective opinions of more than 145,000 members, many of whom demonstrate better investing insight than published analysts do.

It had been stuck at a two-star rating for years, but enough top-performing CAPS members have turned bullish on Coinstar (NASDAQ:CSTR) recently to upgrade it to a more formidable three stars. A total 279 members have given their opinion on the vending- and coin-machine operator, with many of them offering analysis and commentary explaining the recent optimism.

Many CAPS members like the success that Coinstar is enjoying with its DVD rental and coin-counting businesses and anticipate that Redbox will drive strong growth for the company. In addition to locations in select Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE:WMT), Walgreen's, and McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), the company rolled out its Redbox kiosks at more grocers and convenience stores like 7-Eleven early last year. And strong demand has prompted it to continue installations that have exceeded its projections.

The company is facing some of the same issues as Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) in battling movie studios over shipping delays for new releases, which has prompted the Redbox unit to fire back with lawsuits against studios including Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) and 20th Century Fox. But Redbox has been able to buy some titles from retailers like Wal-Mart and Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), and some investors anticipate that stronger revenue growth will outweigh the effects of retail DVD purchases on margins.

Coinstar is also considering putting more products like video games and Blu-ray through its kiosks, keeping the heat on competitors like Blockbuster (NYSE:BBI) and opening new avenues of growth.
