A Green Mountain a spokeswoman declined to comment on the NPD data. The company said it will report earnings on Feb. 1.


Waterbury, Vt.-based Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. rose after a SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst said brewer sales rose 50 percent in December from a year earlier at the maker of single-serve Keurig machines and capsules. The company’s stock gained 36 percent last year. Analyst William Chappell cited data from NPD Group Inc. that implied the trends look “favorable compared to our estimate for 30 percent brewer growth’’ in the first quarter.
