Earlier today Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NASDAQ:GMCR) released some very impressive numbers, and consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly join host Mark Reeth to chat about them.
Green Mountain was up 15% today on the news that EPS was $0.89, a 56% increase year over year, beating estimates by 20%. In addition, Keurig sales were up 26%, and Mark wants to know if coffee brewers that rely on customers leaving their homes, like Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), should be scared of this strength. Mike thinks not, what with Starbucks' strong channel development segment and its new independence from Kraft.
