Green Mountain Stock Soars on Coke Partnership

Coke is coming to K-Cups, perking up Green Mountain Coffee's stock.

Coca-Cola announced a partnership Wednesday with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, maker of the popular Keurig single-serving coffee machine.

The news sent Green Mountain shares soaring more than 25% in Thursday trading. Green Mountain said it would undertake a "meaningful" share repurchase program to reduce dilution of existing investors' holdings.

Coke shares rose about 1% Thursday.
