    The coffee trade is doing quite well today with shares of Starbucks (SBUX +7%), Dunkin' Brands (DNKN +6%), and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +2.3%) all lively. Though at one time, Starbucks was pegged as a GMCR-killer (via Verismo) and thought to be a thorn to DNKN's expansion plans, the prevailing thought is that the coffee market might be big enough for quite a few players. The very last thing people want to give up is a cup of coffee," notes Lazard Capital.

    The read-through from J.M Smucker's (SJM) FQ4 report for coffee sellers (SBUX, DNKN, GMCR, KRFT) is interesting. By all appearances, the company fought hard to protect its market share by dropping prices on bagged coffee - but sales still fell off in the U.S. for its major brands by 1.2%, indicating one of the other big players picked up some share. In a nice bit of timing, lower green coffee costs helped the company improve profitability in the category - a trend that bodes well for Q2 numbers across the sector.
