    Starbucks (SBUX) wins a battle in a U.S. appeal court in New York to limit its baristas to wearing only one pro-union button or pin on their uniforms. The court ruled the NLRB overstepped its legal bounds in challenging the company's internal rules.

    Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +0.6%) moves higher after sitting in negative territory most of the day following comments from Starbucks (SBUX +1.7%) CEO Howard Schultz aired on CNBC (video) that the two companies can "co-exist."

    The big moves in Green Mountain (GMCR -48%) and Chesapeake Energy (CHK +1.91%) recently have value investors chomping at the bit to scoop up shares at deep discounts. To do so however, is akin to trying to catch a falling knife. "You have to distinguish between just setbacks and atrophy of business model,” says Short Hill Capital's Stephen Weiss. If you don't, you might just find yourself getting impaled by tempation. Some safer bets might be: Starbucks (SBUX -2%), Visa (V -4.6%), or McDonald's (MCD -0.6%).

    Goldman Sachs maintains its Conviction Buy rating for Starbucks (SBUX -0.1%), powered by data showing that K-cup sales are percolating right along. The positive spin appears to be helping out shares of strategic partner Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) more than SBUX, with shares up 3.3% on the day and adding to their 9.5% run over the last 5 trading sessions.

    Jefferies' Andy Barish tips off that coffee stock investors may need to wait until 2013 to see the benefit of lower coffee prices roll down to earnings. Most companies lock in prices well in advance, providing them security in a rising-price coffee market - but also a bit of a wait when the market cools. Coffee C futures -3.3% to 176.15, -35% YTD.

    Starbucks (SBUX +2.5%) reports FQ2 results tomorrow after the market closes with all eyes on (what else) China. A host of companies have reported slower growth rates in the country including Caterpillar, ABB, McDonald's, and Yum Brands. Can Starbuck buck the trend - in a nation of tea drinkers nonetheless - with its plan to triple the number of China-based stores over the next couple of years?

    Wedbush is starting coverage on Peet's Coffee (PEET) with an Outperform and $83 PT, arguing estimates will rise due to the successful rollout of Peet's medium-roast blend and lower 2013 coffee bean prices. The firm is less positive on Teavana (TEA), which is receiving a Neutral and $21 PT out of a belief the company will have trouble expanding beyond 500 stores in the U.S (it currently has 200).
