SunTrust Robinson Humphrey's William Chappell lifted his price target on shares of Green Mountain (NASDAQ: GMCR) from $45 to $50 in a research note Friday morning. The analyst reiterated a Buy rating.

Chappell believes fears related to the entry of Starbucks' (NASDAQ: SBUX) Verisimo into the single-serve market have "substantially diminished" over the last month or so. The analyst called the recent "$50 off" promotion a positive indication for Green Mountain.

Citing channel checks, Chappell believes new K-Cup competition has now finally arrived at the marketplace. He pointed out Kraft's (NASDAQ: KRFT) has been "limited" and private-label K-Cup discounts are smaller than the normal branded-to-private label spread. Chappell is expecting a slow 2013 ramp for private-label K-Cups.

Green Mountain shares are trading down nearly 1 percent in pre-market action.
