Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -0.8%) looks like a good investment idea to Insider Monkey. The stock trades at a lower P-E ratio than peers and overwrought concerns on inventory levels are unjustified, goes the bull thesis. Despite the optimistic take, buying in front of the company's release of FQ1 numbers takes some courage after 2012 saw a roller coaster ride for shares on earnings release days.

    GMCR will definitely trend higher over time but since it has been a favorite target of short-sellers, we can expect to see continuing volatility as it creeps upwards, because it has basically weathered the expected storm from its patent expiry and from competitors. It has been able to tie up with more partners and come up with competitive alternative models of its Keurig, so I expect sales to increase and the next forecast to be better, even though I'm still thinking that management of GMCR had tweaked the figures of its last report and we should logically expect a weaker report next quarter. However, given how its actual sales are holding up or expected to increase, I do expect that the next report will defy nay-sayers and improve GMCR's outlook. Nonetheless, profit may dip, with lower margins, even with higher revenue, unless sales are exceptional, which we can all look forward to, at least for the next six months, since I'm sure that its competitors will react to improvements by GMCR and bite into GMCR sales but again, more partnerships will ensure higher sales.
