+ Watch SBUX
on My Watchlist
Starbucks, the ubiquitous purveyor of caffeinated beverages, is the world's leading specialty coffee retailer.
Stock has been remarkably consistent over past 2.5 years. Move into tea. Never bet against a guy that significantly changed an entire industry.
Strong brand loyalty, outstanding leadership, and pivotal holdings in the tea market which may be the next "drink store/cafe" idea to explode. LOVE Sbux
Great bussines model, growing in developing countries.
They have found the way to get people to drink their expensive (but good) coffee again and againlike druck addicts.
They do a good job in the atmosphere department, I feel. One thing I've liked about Starbucks locations: I don't recall ever hearing bad, dumbed down pop music in one before. If I remember my visits right, my musician ears have been have pretty satisfied and sometimes even very satisfied with what they play. VERY important to me when I'm in a cafe type place.
Starbucks is an incredible company. It is a cult culture that just keeps growing. The management is excellent and the product is perfect. If Starbucks continues on the route it's at, it would be easy to see this stock over $100 and eventually splitting.
Excellent coffee, increasing focus on tea, comfortable stores, decent food, 'aspirational' pricing, growing margins.
Pls. give me your opinion on the subject.
I like it.
Huge growth. All the young generations drink Starbucks coffee. Now tea !
still has solid opportunities for growth
The mermaid can swim
It's THE industry leader for the most popular addictive substance in the US, revamped their business motto due to the wildfire of franchises opening on every street corner, adding higher quality food, made a deal with Danon to server parfaits... Oh.. and just opened their first TeaVanna which is just Starbucks for tea instead of coffee. Much more international potential as the US is really the only coffee-centric country while the rest of the world drinks tea.They have competition with everyone buying K-cups (Green Mountain Coffee!) but I don't see that stopping them from keeping their firm grip on the demographic of 'coffee shoppers.'
If you look at their 6-month, 1-year and 5-year charts they're all pretty much a straight line up. Plus they've built a brand that inspires the kind of loyalty yup rarely see outside of Apple.
As long as the cars are lined up in the drive in they are doing well. I see it every day when I pass by.
With Whole Foods' targeting the single-serve coffee packets with its own store-brand label, this could represent a significant threat to what accounts for more than three-quarters of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' (GMCR) sales. If this does come about in a significant way, this could catapult Starbucks into a serious run up.
Great company with a solid business model
worldwide expansion with coffee, tea, nutritional beverages
