Starbucks Corporation Research Report
Coffee shops, like Starbucks, are frequented by affluent consumers who have extra money to spend for premium coffee. However, the chain's executives have joined its industry peers in adopting a cautious stance because of this month's U.S. payroll tax increase, which may decrease consumer spending. Furthermore, with convenient coffee brewing products like Green Mountain's Keurig, consumers can now acquire high-quality coffee at the convenience of their own kitchen. It's for this reason that Starbucks began selling Verismo, its own single-serve espresso maker. It sold 150,000 units during the holidays, a number that Starbucks executives are pleased with. But Green Mountain sold 4.2M of Keurig units during the holiday a quarter a year ago, suggesting that the Verismo may not be as successful as Starbucks claims.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. Research Report
Green Mountain is still hazy on its plans of expanding to Asia, where Starbucks got most of its revenue. Its recent move is to launch affordable Keurig brewer models in order to reach out to more consumers. This allowed the company's revenue to increase $946.7 million, reflecting the success of new Keurig Single Cup Brewers, single serve packs (K-cups) and Keurig-related accessories. Green Mountain has said that its growth will be moderate as compared to its earlier years, but its most recent quarter beat analyst expectations and the company is optimistic about fiscal 2013.

"Dollar General's continued growth reflects our customers' increasing satisfaction with our everyday low prices and convenience," said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General's chairman and CEO. He added that 2013 would mark another growth milestone as the company plans to open its 11,000th store before year ends.
