I really do not understand why this stock is so hated on CAPS. With a Price/Sales of 0.46, forward PE of 12 and 88% quarterly revenue growth it sounds pretty good already. Add to that a small dividend (approx 1% current yield) and the fact that it's 50% insider owned and you have a recipe for a hot investment.

I'd recheck your quarterly revenue growth figures. Your $9.63 entry, however was a good one.
This company has had no growth in two years if you balance out COS.
Insider ownership has been selling in large blocks.
The low float, short seller pile on, spike with other coffee company's, shorts covering, price dropping, repeat, is all this company has going for it.
The 13% increase of the share count may help with some of the volitility, but will dampen the earnings per share even furhter.
I agree with you in principal that JVA is not the stinker some caps players think it is, but the aroma isn't a 26% spike it got today.
Good short term call, but I'd check the numbers if you're looking to ride this one. Good luck.

From looking at the chart I noticed the formation of a bullish pattern known as 'cup with handle'. Most of the time such pattern indicates the stock is developing an uptrend momentum. In my opinion now is a great time to buy the stock.

I see a previous head and shoulders pattern but don't see a cup with a handle. Their earnings for the last quarter showing on Motley fool was their second highest revenue and their LOWEST profit in 11 quarters. I've downthumbed it a few times and gained over 90 points doing so. It still seems a bit pricey to me. When their cost for coffee beans drops then I'll upthumb it! McDonalds is selling good coffee at a low price. Wonder if they import their own coffee. I think they will put a sizable dent in other coffe providers. I don't really know much about the coffee business, though.

Net income is not profit. Accountants can easily make net income whatever they want it to be. Adjusted free cash flow is what investors should focus on. Based on free cash flow JVA has never been profitable.

The company said it earned $1.2 million, or 19 cents a share, compared with $168,236, or 3 cents a share, for the same quarter in 2011. Sales rose 24% to $44.5 million. "Although coffee prices on average were lower by $1 per pound, we achieved growth in our sales in all key areas, including green coffee sales, private labels sales and branded sales, building upon our momentum from last quarter, while improving our gross margin by almost three percentage points as well."
