TheStreet Ratings rates Green Mountain Coffee Roasters as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

On the negative front, Feihe International ( ADY), down 10.4%, Jones Soda Company ( JSDA), down 8.3%, G. Willi-Food International ( WILC), down 4.3%, and Limoneira ( LMNR), down 4.1%, were all losers within the food & beverage industry with Archer-Daniels Midland Company ( ADM) being today's food & beverage industry loser.
