Signs of single-serve brewing system saturation

Single-serve brewing system sales rose 8% last year to $930M, although some key markets showed signs of saturation.

Retail sales of single-serve brewing systems were flat in New York City, while they actually fell off in Washington, DC (-2%) and Boston (-3%).

19% of pod-based machine sales were online during the period.

    Is this why GMCR stock price has been declining recently? Anyone know?

    Indeed, for not being that much more convenient, it costs more as well as being an inferior product to drip.

    People want more than one cup at a time. Novelty is wearing thin like weak coffee

    People are looking for more than single cup serve, GMCR needs to invest to make new product, and different from the others.

    Is that it or is there more too it. I think perhaps Coke's decision to take such a large position in GMCR was 'hastily' made. Is this stock still going lower or are we finding a floor at $93?
