The Pros and Cons of Green Mountain Coffee

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin goes over the pros and cons of a former market darling: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NAS: GMCR) . Many investors are beginning to ask themselves whether the stock is a buy after getting nailed by David Einhorn's bearish call on the company. While it is certainly cheaper than it was before the bear call, the company is still very expensive compared to its peers. One catalyst for it could be its new brewer, the Vue, but can it replicate the success of its former devices?

Green Mountain has come down from its highs but has likely run its course as a stock for shareholders to love today. The opposite is true of "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." Our top pick is a largely undiscovered emerging market retailer that's poised to take Latin America by storm. Click here to download it now.
