TheStreet Ratings team rates GREEN MTN COFFEE ROASTERS as a Buy with a ratings score of B. The team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate GREEN MTN COFFEE ROASTERS (GMCR) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
