Between back to school and all nighters requiring COFFEE......let alone part time jobers working at SBUX whose friends come by to BUY and visit and maybe, HEY ITS GETTING COLD OUTSIDE again its the season for SBUX!
From now till next APRIL/MAY......SBUX gets help from Mother Nature! Add to this, the SHOPPING season which seems to start earlier and earlier each year and SBUX and the EXPANDED offering should be looking for record growth! Its hard not to love SBUX the STOCK whether you drink the coffee yourself or not, whther you agree with Shutlz's political views or not, SBUX still maintians a commanding lead on its competitors and while its performance over the last 12 months has been, well, FANTASTIC.........SBUX seems to be approaching the equivalent of breaking the sound barrier if you will, within the consumer/food-drink/retail sector!
I have not even mentioned India or China.....................fasten your seatbelts IMHO!
