+ Watch SBUX
on My Watchlist
Starbucks, the ubiquitous purveyor of caffeinated beverages, is the world's leading specialty coffee retailer.
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.
company will continue to dominate the coffee market for some time to come
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)
It all rides on Schultz leadership. If he steps down, it will be tough to find a suitable successor. I'm banking he stays on for a while.
Starbucks through its forward looking management and powerful brand recognition will continue to dominate its industry and expand. People have demonstrated that they don't mind paying top dollar for a premium product and I believe management will find ways to entice people into trying concepts unrelated to coffee that will ultimately keep the company profitable for years to come.
Well run company with international expansion. Coffee prices have come off a bit.
Solid product, excellent management, worldwide brand recognition, and excellent marketing. Others follow..... Worldwide consumer product appeal regardless of brand, and Starbucks share position still has room for growth, especially in Europe. They continue to be creative with new recipes for flavorful drinks, and they have an uncanny strength in locating their outlets in areas where there is not only hi-volume, but hi-volume of their product patrons. I buy every two weeks.
