Green Mountain Coffee Roasters still a Buy: KeyBanc

|By:, SA News Editor

KeyBanc is comfortable with its Buy rating on Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +0.2%) after dissecting the last six proxy statements from the company in order to try to ferret out some trends.

The investment firm sees it as a positive sign that a great deal of executive compensation at Green Mountain is tied to aggressive EPS and sales targets.

The pending name change to Keurig Greem Mountain should also boost the brand in the long run, notes analyst Akshay Jagdale.
