    GMCR is on a road of its own. Starbucks Verisomo machines have had bad reviews, so what they do will only have a positive effect on GMCR. Feb. quarterly report will reinforce the GMCR stock value.

    I'm sure that GMCR will continue to beat back competition with the innovations and partnerships it has developed, especially during the past three months or so. The next results report should be good, even though initial expectation is that it should be lower, not because results are weak but because GMCR has tweaked its last report, so demand for GMCR should improve dramatically.
