Should You Be Worried About the Starbucks "Toilet Water" Scandal?

A little more than a week ago, Starbucks found itself embroiled in a major scandal in China. A Starbucks location in Hong Kong's Bank of China Tower didn't have a water source in the store, so workers were brewing coffee with water taken from a tap in a nearby bathroom. As pictures revealed, this tap was just a few feet away from a urinal. While Starbucks obviously was not using water from a toilet to brew coffee, the story quickly became known worldwide as the "toilet water" scandal.
Claims of customer mistreatment can quickly lead to a broad-based consumer backlash in China. As a result, some shareholders -- like my colleague Tamara Rutter -- have worried that Starbucks could take a big hit in China, just as Yum! Brands did following revelations about abnormally high levels of antibiotics in KFC China's chickens. This would be a big loss for Starbucks, which views China as a massive growth market that will soon be second only to the U.S. in revenue.
Fortunately, Starbucks has reacted quickly to this issue and moved to repair the damage by switching to distilled water and offering an apology to customers. Just as Apple CEO Tim Cook was able to dispel a
I own the day traders until they get on my tailwind. Most are smart enough to do that. The others lose money. facts are facts.
This is working very well. Shorts watch and learn. You really want to short one of the best consumer brands in the World who has demonstrated growth in all segments ? Really ? Go for it. You want to bet with ITG and their proprietary software ? ( I hoot every time I read that ) My proprietary software says buy. And I know what I am doing.This is a blood game and there is a loser for every winner. ITG you are a loser on this call.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
shoo flies shoo!
Love saying that to stupid eff daytrader shorts. Cover or have your fleeting gains turn into losses. LOL
Your are correct. Trendline was bought on way up. Now it will be sold on way down. That simple. The big boys are selling hard and will continue until a 25% DROP.
This is a brilliantly managed company with superior products, numerous months running drop in wholesale coffee prices (yes, even premium beans), excellent institutional sponsorship (ITG excluded whoever the F that firm is -- LOL), Teavana ready to add materially next year, and now enjoying the dominant single serve pod brand (yes, #1) without even trying really... and more brands/better brewers to come.
Thrilled really to be adding on the cheap. Now that all the sell outs and box shorting to lock down 2013 incentives are done, watch the breathtaking turnaround within days from now, and a rip the shorts' faces off january will be on the heels of that!
We are thrilled with the special sale price good for another day or two max.
SBUX is one of the best managed companies in the sector... lots of runway ahead with Teavana, single serve branding and premier quality.
IBD ranks them number two in the group
This fake drop will be over quickly; just a blip that almost disrupted the chart (but anyone reading our posts knows we think charts are fun, but fundamentals and quant are the drivers for sustained outperformance for all stocks. SBUX was a great allocation this year; next year will be powerful as well.
LOL. Great comment!
I just quoted the same passage in my reply to fabricone! Read that second sentence again -- that is a primary reason SBUX will be a top performing stock next year, especially as the Teavana initiatives kick in and SBUX continues to rip with take home k cups.
you and greg have been great on that board...
We've added substantial shares of this today, on top of what was already our third largest position.
Here's my favorite part of their dip S report, right where they are explaining their rationale for why they think the stock is ahead of itself.
"We believe sales growth will likely continue to be driven primarily by increased traffic and innovative food and beverage offerings."
We should all write them a thank you note for sharing such sheer profundity. LOL
