Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) remains a lightning rod for arguments between bulls and bears. ETF manager John Del Vechhio expects Starbucks' introduction of the Verismo espresso brewer will force Green Mountain to step up its investments, and thus contribute to margin pressure. Janney's Mitchell Pinheiro is more bullish, predicting strong growth in the Keurig's installed base this year and next, and noting espresso brewers only made up 3% of U.S. brewer sales last year.
