Why Starbucks Likes the Keurig Too

Earlier today Green Mountain Coffee Roasters 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 , should be scared of this strength. Mike thinks not, what with Starbucks' strong channel development segment and its new independence from Kraft.
