NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 23, 2011) - Coffee stocks have taken a sizeable hit in recent weeks.

Companies such as Coffee Holding and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters saw their PE ratios skyrocket -- leading several investors to start taking profits. The Paragon Report examines the outlook for the Coffee Sector and provides equity research on Coffee Holding Co. (NASDAQ: JVA) and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR).

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' brand specializes in organic, fair trade, and specialty gourmet coffees. Keurig is a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and sells many of their coffee varieties as "K-Cups." The Waterbury, Vt.-based company said fiscal fourth-quarter revenue came in at $711.9 million. The result represents 91% growth from the year-ago quarter, but it was below the $760 million expected by analysts polled by FactSet Research. Almost 83% of the net sales were contributed by the Keurig brewing system and its recurring portion pack sales, including Keurig-related accessory.
