Consumer Stocks: 1 to Buy, 1 to Sell in 2012


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Andrew discuss two companies in the consumer sector, Chipotle and Teavana. The burrito maker has been on a tear over the past few years, expanding across the U.S. and entering international markets. Despite Chipotle's growth story, however, the stock could be overpriced. Teavana, on the other hand, looks attractive in much the same way Chipotle did five years ago. The upscale tea retailer has discovered a relatively untapped market, and key retail metrics reveal strong performance.
