Coinstar, Inc. (CSTR) Earnings: An Early Look

The company will have new leadership to see it through the important transition, though, as CEO Paul Davis made a surprise announcement last month that he would retire at the end of March. CFO Scott Di Valerio will take over as CEO, but the move spooked investors, and Coinstar needs to do what it can to bolster investor confidence in light of the move.

Watch closely for Coinstar to reveal details about the Redbox Instant beta release as well as trends in its DVD business. Those two areas should give you more guidance on how much time the company has to make a transition before DVDs become obsolete.
