Caribou Coffee has improved its fundamentals dramatically recently, eliminating debt and gaining a 2.8 current ratio. Low valuations of 0.4 PEG and p/e of 9.3x are also encouraging in light of the expansion prospects for this franchise. The question… More

Go to the earnings tab. Take a look at their 5 year earnings rate. This is a terrible company. Oh, they also have terrible coffee. They have hit their limit. Not much room for expansion.

Agressive, but thoughtful expansion strategy. Only 10 yrs. old and barely begun to penetrate both domestic and foreign markets. Sitting on lots of cash indicating careful management. Lowering coffee prices will help.

Outperform for Caribou Coffee. For those who have missed Starbucks expansion in both America and Overseas, it is our chance to buy into the coffee chain. Yes, it is not Starbucks, it is better than Starbucks. We have seen how Starbucks overexpanded in America and its stock prices tumbled to $15 in 2009. Starbucks has been doing the same fast expansion in China again, meaning it is running the same risk of overexpanding in China as it had in America during 2002-2007. Yet, Caribou is more of well paced growth, about 23% annually. Do not care for the single K-cup too much. Even without it, Caribou will still grow at about 23% annually. Where can we find a company with increasing profit margin when coffee bean prices come down, and a solid company with a clean balance sheet with no debt? It has the Minnesota market to itself, even Starbucks once had to close stores in Minnesota. If it is some company with a strong focus on good paced growth, it is Caribou Coffee. With only 550+ location nationwide so far and a handful worldwide, there is still a lot of room to grow. And about its coffee offerings, it is commonly said that its coffee are better than Starbucks, and its store decoration is more relaxing than that of Starbucks.

CBOU has no debt, offers a nicer setting vs. Starbucks, has better tasting coffee (less acid). For those people that want a real alternative to Starbucks, it is excellent.
