3 Reasons to Buy Coffee Holding Company

Today, Austin discusses three reasons to consider buying Coffee Holding (NAS: JVA) . The company's interests will continue to serve those of the investor, since the top two executives own almost 20% of the company. Even better, the company's low forward P/E gives it a very affordable price, even if the anticipated sales estimates end up being too optimistic. And a perceived weakness could be its biggest strength. A huge portion of Coffee Holding's business comes from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Obviously, more flexibility would benefit the company, but analysts expect Green Mountain to grow EPS at 33% each of the next five years. Austin remains bearish on the company's overall potential, but he's still found plenty of room for optimism.
