At The Motley Fool, we want to be accountable for our recommendations. Each week, I'll make a CAPScall on my profile in Motley Fool CAPS and highlight my pick in Friday's video. This video series may also include updates on previous calls and related news.

In today's video, I look at premium retail coffee maker Starbucks (NAS: SBUX) and what the company's new single-serve coffeemaker means for the stock. Starbucks' single-cup machine will compete with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NAS: GMCR) and its popular Keurig brewer. Green Mountain has ongoing deals with other coffee retailers, including Dunkin Donuts (NAS: DNKN) and Caribou Coffee (NAS: CBOU) , which allow these brands to sell K-Cup portion packs for the Keurig that are uniquely branded to their respective companies.

It isn't always easy to know which stocks will outperform and which will fizzle. Luckily, some of The Motley Fool's brightest analysts have done the hard work for you.
