Coffee watch: J.M. Smucker (SJM) showed a promising 4% increase in its U.S. retail coffee segment in Q2, with Folgers Gourmet Selections and Millstone K-Cups contributing gains. Both Starbucks (SBUX) and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) compete directly with the company and hope more pressured consumers aren't starting to trade down.

  • For stock price value tho sjm is not "trading down" from GMCR and SBUX. Smucker has the staying power for continued growth.
