  • Is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Too Successful for Its Own Good? [View article]
    Purported transaction does not make SEC, litigation, and GAAP violation issues go away.

    Hi Bill: My issues with Green Mountain relate to disclosure violations. and not business models. I teach government agencies, accounting and legal professionals, and students how to find irregularities.
    In many cases I have identified disclosure violations missed by auditors, company lawyers, and Wall Street. The SEC is investigating several public companies after I alerted them to various accounting irregularities such as Overstock.com, Bidz.com, and others. Regards, Sam

    I am not sure if all of those decisions were smart. There is a lot of skepticism about the company's acquisitions. I respectfully suggest that you read some of Marc Astrachan's reports from Stifel, Nicolaus & Company. He is a rare bread among so-called research analysts in that he is capable of being a skeptic.

    Thank you. I like to be more transparent about my sins than Green Mountain has been with its sins.

    I haven't taken a close look at goodwill yet. I am currently researching another issue on GMCR which I hope to blog about soon. Let's just say it's a black hole in the numbers for now.

    Too many people are afraid of being sued in retaliation. In my case, I couldn't care less. A lawsuit against me would give me subpoena power to dig even deeper.

    Hi PMC: Rules are rules and Green Mountain must follow them. In every investigation, the SEC will look for a "pattern of inconsistencies." Usually, where there is smoke there is fire. Green Mountain has clearly violated GAAP and other SEC disclosure rules on a consistent basis. The SEC has the subpoena power to determine if any fraud was involved. Regards, Sam

    Hi Silky:

    The recent rumors reminds me of the call options trading on the afternoon of November 19.

  • Green Mountain Coffee Roasters: Calling a Bean, a Bean [View article]
    Hi WST:

    Your premise sounds rational. However, since the SEC inquiry was announced on September 28, Green Mountain doesn't seem to be following that logic. On that date, they should have identified the K-Cup margin error as a material accounting error under criteria provided by SAB No. 99, but didn't.

    Regards,

    Sam
