At one point today, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) hit $79.13 making it a 50% gainer on the day. The shares have backed off slightly, but today is still an outstanding day for Green Mountain.
But that isn’t the only one of my favorite stocks soaring. Shares of First Solar (FSLR) have been up by as much as 25% in today’s market.
The company’s earnings soared to $1.99 a share from 57 cents last year. Wall Street was looking for $1.50 a share.
What’s interesting is that First Solar has been on a hot streak going into yesterday’s earnings report. From the beginning of March to today, the stock is up over 80%.
