Shares of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) head into the release of the firm's FQ4 earnings with a nice little head of steam, up 16.5% over the last five trading sessions. Although plenty of bears are still around to rain on GMCR's parade, the company has navigated the loss of its K-Cup patent exclusivity and the entry of Starbucks' Verismo machine into the market with less turmoil than expected. While earnings are in focus, traders will also pay close attention to the firm's conference call for clues as to the direction new CEO Brian Kelley may take the firm. (earnings preview)

    2.Soon a green mountain expresso machine will appear which will froth fresh milk(not the starbuck packets)
    3.Third party k cups..no problem, green mountain signing contracts with costco, etc
    4.Growth? NO problem...entering the international market
    5.Einhorn says "short"..no problem, 3 other hedge funds are betting LONG on this stock
    6.Contracts with snapple, eight o clock coffee and others makes it the best selection of flavors(over 280 and growing)
    7.With the millions of keurigs on the market already, k cups sales will continue to be brisk with the third party sales just making a small dent
    8.Why would the coke president leave for green mountain? To draw that kind of executive, he knows the potential of this company. Enough said.
    9.Bad news bad news bad news ALREADY built into this stock. No more surprises
