Shares of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -2.9%) can't shake off that losing feeling as they dip below the $20 mark. This week's headaches for management include the news that single-serve competition is around the corner from Kroger and Safeway, while the overriding theme on GMCR is that the company hasn't solved the issue of what it will do to counter the patent expirations (I, II) that are around the corner.

  • Don't mention the fact that GMCR has a pending lawsuit defending their patent on K-Cups, or that none of the supermarket K-Cups have been available to test market. Most consumers will not change their coffee brands to save a few dollars a week, certainly not if the store brand is inferior quality. You are assuming GMCR has to solve an issue that may not exist.

  • GMCR OWNS the platform!! you can't do anything with a k-cup but brew it in a Kuerig. GMCR has 20,000,000 plus brewers in the world's kitchens and more everyday. As more K-cups become available it sells more brewers.
