by the way little chichi small and inefficient counters? so little chichi what size counters do they need? little chichi, you realize they are making coffee right?
make up your mind little chichi, is there a line of people or nobody in the stores?
speaking of which, how is that little ATNAF stock working for you little chichi?
Why the freak out? Go to DD. No one is forcing you to patronize, or own, SBUX.
it takes 3 to 6 minutes to make that cup after waiting for 4 to 5 minutes in line ie 10 minutes/ cup the store has too many things going on sinks are filthy, counters small and inefficient ,rolls, cakes expensive and don't taste that good... come on something is terribly wrong here imo
I bought into SBUX in Spring 2008. First discovered it as a teen in the mid 1990s when mom would go twice on Saturday. (My dad's a stock broker- so I've been aware of the stock market since about 12 or so). The stock makes up a significant portion of my profits in both my taxable and my IRA accounts. I've been thinking about selling part of my stake in my IRA and moving the money to my Vanguard life cycle. That would to reduce single stock exposure, capture some profit, increase my diversification and if I sell part of my IRA stake there's no capital gains taxes.
Sounds good on so many levels- but the stock's been on a tear lately and shows no signs of stopping- so I also dont want to get out. I will not be eliminating any position I have with SBUX just reducing it if I do sell. Baring some massive change I'll probably have some starbucks in my portfolio until i die.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
would you like to work at SBUX ?........32 times earnings is SERIOUS this isn't a joke for $60 you have to get $6 / share in earnings see MET, AHL, AEG get smart imo
a look at options tends to agree with you,for now expect sbux to expire a lot of 60 call and up worth less this week and maybe next
the options are saying no,most calls that were in the money showed very muted response,one example jul 31 calls at 57 with the stock at 59 were priced at a high of 2.22,bear in mind that i bought yesterday with the stock at 56.48 and priced at 1.23,i was luckky from what i can see to sell at 1.91 with the stock at 58.68,in other word traders are not buying a much bigger move in the very near future,or there would have been serious option pricing expansion
if you look at jan options they are not pricing any real move from here,particulary anythin over the 56 calls,with the stock up a lot moves were very small and in a cpl of cases near flat,next week should see profit taking if the options are right
62 would be a huge move today. We will hit 62, just not on this Monday. It will happen and relatively soon too probably within the next two weeks.
Well if you're going to acquire the licensed stores it has to happen in SOME quarter. Would you have been happier if it was done next quarter? the quarter after that? It was a mixed but generally positive quarter - like they are most of the time. Margins slipped, same store sales were up an incredible 7% (for a 20000 store chain!). You want deception - go look at the Tesla non-GAAP numbers.
It makes today's SBUX move seem so paltry... Had the sense enough to know and play NFLX and a dope to play AAPL... but didn't think to throw a few CALL dollars at this freight train... OH WELL!
In this case newstolose is hollering "fire" where there isn't one. He may be neither long nor short, he's obviously clueless, or simply hates the idea of people making money.
There is one on every board, their whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
[Actually I'm not (short). But I am honest and hate deception.]
So you're not short, and you're obviously not long. So do you spend your day just roaming from board to board pointing out how unfair, corrupt and deceptive people are? If rooting out deception is your mission in life, you might want to focus on Iran and China. Or maybe boycott a magic store.
