+ Watch SBUX
on My Watchlist
Starbucks, the ubiquitous purveyor of caffeinated beverages, is the world's leading specialty coffee retailer.
Still plenty of growth ahead.
As long as coffee does not directly cause cancer like cigarettes, this equity should outperform Mr. and/or Ms. Market. I have a 100 price target on this security with or without a stock split.
SBUX has been outperforming the S&P 500 by 4 times (23% verses 6%) over the last 8 year period.Starbucks is trying to invigorate the coffee house evening environment with beer, wine and salty snacks. Using mobile pay to shorten wait times.Opening 100 select coffee roaster stores with prices of products 1.5 times higher than a normal Starbucks.
People love Starbucks, and the numbers show it. Profits are up 34%, they're making strides in China and Japan, and they're into delivery and mobile payments now. Plus they're less dependent on breakfast items for revenue than competitors (i.e. Dunkin' Donuts). Pays a nice dividend too.TRIPLE BUY!
Great margins, web app set to do very well, loyal customer base, falling coffee prices, more US workers, large and successful roll out in China (higher margin business and have managed cultural differences (tea) well)
Starbucks gets so much free advertisement from on-going social media jokes from teens. In fact Starbucks has been tweeted about 19 times since I finished typing the first sentence 25 seconds ago.
I like Starbucks going into earnings. Coffee last quarter was cheaper and went up this quarter. That may cause the only issue that they have, but the price of oil has dropped and the consumer has discretionary money that they can spend on their high end coffee addiction. I know that I have that problem with coffee. Seriously, gourmet coffee is great and if you are getting extra money as compared to last year at the pump why not spend it on coffee. They have raised prices in the stores, and the price of coffee is back down to close to what it was last quarter. It is a buy.
Caffeine is an extremely addictive drug
People are very passionate about Starbucks, and I know some of them. With convenient locations all over the place, adding extra caffeine into their coffee and having a loyal customer base, the only way to go is up. That extra caffeine gets people even more addicted, which keeps them coming back for more.
internatational growth is still largely untapped. Strategic partnerships have already helped them turn around from 5 years ago and will continue to do so.
Coffee makes the world turn and there's still not a Starbucks on every corner.
Rise in Fuel and Transportation will increase cost of Coffee dramatically and consumers will decline Starbucks in favor of Water.
Fantastic brand, maybe the best when it comes to premium coffee worldwide. There is still plenty of room for growth, especially with Teavana and new alcohol products. Great buying opportunity on the pullback.
SBUX continues to focus on the customer experience which will keep people engage and coming back to its stores. The management team has proved to be effective with it's business development strategies and ability to expand offerings to consumers.
Owns the coffee industry. They are a great brand - moving into Tea, expanding grocery store space (beautiful displays/endcaps).
Generation Z loves Starbucks, maybe more of a girls thing but plenty of guys love it as well.
I don't like coffee.
Short term, overvalued. Look at that P/E! (241)
