+ Watch SBUX
on My Watchlist
Starbucks, the ubiquitous purveyor of caffeinated beverages, is the world's leading specialty coffee retailer.
Starbucks has great coffees and hot chocolates. They get the temperature just right.
- PEG = 1.45- Outperformed S&P 500 over 52-week period- Good growth model- Trustworthy management- EBITDA = $3.05B- Manageable debt
Continue growth into new markets and history of success. There seems to be no slowing of the momentum for this company.
Valuation is too high. Coffee hedges have increased 35% and has not been factored into future earnings.
Cannot continue to pay out dividends higher than earnings in the long run....
Classic brand. All they gotta do is keeping making great tasting coffee and this company will do great things. HOLD for 5+ years and reexamine the market and Starbucks' position within the industry.
International expansion, Teavana, La Boulange will fuel growth. Schultz leading the charge will find a way to continue growing at an attractive rate.
I make my own lattes at home
Same as Gmcr. people need it to start there day but I think it's too high of a price, might be around $60.00.
Addictive and still growing
Seems to go up. Good last report. Caffeine and sugar. Will not be bested by Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf et al., i.e. not much heavyweight competition.
I will say that I love starbucks and am a customer. Three things bother me with this company though. 1. Over the last several years I've noticed a trend in the several sbux i visit getting less of a cozy coffehouse feel and more of a fast food feel. 2. Americans are not big tea drinkers... sorry. I don't see Teovani or however it's spelled doing well in a coffee shop. This goes with the various smoothies they have offered. Stick to coffee. 3. The p/e is insane. This is not amazon or some other high growth stock. SBUX has been around a while and while i'm sure growth will continue to be strong, it's not 700+ p/e strong. After a market correction, I see this one sticking around 30-40 for a while.
Most people I know go to Starbucks at least once a day. Sometimes more than that. Also, most of the folks I'm referring to are under 35, (many under 30), so unless they change their habits as they age, I see this sort of behavior continuing for years to come and perhaps increasing with their income. Personally, I make my own coffee at home and save my $ for stocks. But the beans I buy… usually from a conveniently located SBUX store.
Starbucks is in a terrific position to grow comps by mid single digits for the next decade! They acquired La Boulange in 2012, and the full potential of has not yet been realized. Management hopes to roll out La Boulange to all North American stores by the end of 2014. These products are a significant improvement over Starbucks previous pastry options. Nevertheless, these products will lead to higher sales per ticket and also drive incrementally, because La Boulange products are great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Starbucks also has Teavana, which Starbucks is only in its infancy for driving tea sales to. The bottom line is that this is a tremendous company with a top notch management team and that translates to a company that will beat the S&P 500 over the forthcoming 5 years!

Coffee is great for a lot of things.
Breather in price gives another good entry point.
rev growth, TP $95
I'm cheap. I make Folgers Classic at home and think it tastes fine. Starbucks is the only place I go for coffee because it's just that good. It's an addictive consumable luxury - a problem for consumers, sure, but great for investors.
