Shares of doughnut and coffee retailer Krispy Kreme (KKD) are sinking after the company reported lower than expected second quarter profits.

The company's same-store sales jumped 10% versus the same period in 2012.

This month, Krispy Kreme's sales were up about 5% during the first week of the month versus the same period in 2012, up about 12% in the second week,and unchanged during the third week, the doughnut maker stated. PRICE ACTON: In early afternoon trading, Krispy Kreme sank $3.30, or 14%, to $19.95. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that sell doughnuts and/or coffee include Dunkin Brands (DNKN), Starbucks (SBUX), Keurig brewer maker Green Mountain (GMCR), and Canadian retail chain Tim Hortons (THI).
