Buy, Sell, or Hold This Coffee Highflier?


In today's edition of "Buy, Sell, or Hold" analyst Austin Smith puts a sell rating on Coffee Holding.

Unfortunately, the company is too reliant on the business of a dying coffee stock. While the company has some upside potential with its Superior Selections coffee brand and when it opens a few more doors, it's still unproven and marching into an industry with billion-dollar coffee labels and fiercely loyal drinkers. With so much uncertainty surrounding Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, and with it, Coffee Holding, Austin recommends selling.
