I also agree, but anticipate it will be in the
40s soon. All last year when I was in the stock, the
SSS were consistantly around $5 or $6, and the stock
price was in the low $40s. But now in my canual
observations, I have heard consistant monthly reports of SSS at
So, to me, it seems business is even better, and the
stock price is only in the $20s. I don't think their
internet ventures added that much to their expenses to the
effect of decreasing earnings. They are back on track,
and SSS are going up!!!
You NEVER cease to amaze me with your idiocy.
First of all, Nazi's hate Jews and gays. Secondly, most
people don't like Nazi's, so it's not much of an insult.
Stop acting like a 5 year old, PLEASE. And as for how
much this stock has gone down and blah blah blah the
shit is rolling out of your mouth BS, waaaa cry me a
river cause I�m a complainer and can�t handle the stock
market changes ---> (TCDOGGY) Many of us bought back
in low. (Myself included) and are not in the hole
anymore. So shut the hell up, your looking like a fool.
Actually, don't sure up, because your entertaining to say
the least. Rude and arrogant too, but I guess you
have to take the good with the bad. You are a VERY sad
excuse for a human being though.. Very very sad. Someone
screwed up big time on you buddy. heh. :p
SBUX is a step ahead of you. Check out the
following link about coffee sales to
go to the "Business Services" link on their web site
to get your office signed up.
Thanks son. Your Out !!!! hooray !! go beat the
shit out of that asshole engleka the skank. I'm glad
you and mommy are so close. Engleka the queer should
know, because now you will be protecting al of the
dwarfs who have to read her/his/whateva crap. this
shedevil is always so concerned about nonstock stuff.
I was never in jail - it was the "home"
for deviates. I was never a deviate until you left
mommy and it was at that time she made me let her sit
on my lap. PLEASE daddy, pay closer attention to me
- your only son !
cram it loser !!! you are also a piece of shit.
Part of the Happy talk crowd. Walk off a cliff, after
you rle up your prayer carpet and finish noon
services of thanking master Howie for another lackluster
day of performance....uh non
actually, i'm up a little over 8%. but thanks for
the response, as it allows those who aren't familiar
with your tactics to see that your "analysis" of SBUX
is unsupportable. your reply also makes clear that
your only recourse is to make personal attacks (you
aren't even good at that!).
having you around is
like having my own personal puppet! i can get you to
say exactly what i want you to, exactly when i want
you to say it. your response achieved just the result
i was looking for. i should have just said "show
everyone that you're a complete idiot" and been done with
it, because that is exactly what you did. thanks for
being so cooperative!
You are indeed the pathetic one. Sounds like you
should join your son in jail. If your son gets out of
jail, make sure that you sleep with your ass against
the wall, so that you do not become too "close" to
If SBUX is such "a piece of shit", why do you still
have some of the shares, or are you laughing at
yourself, when you state that the shares are down 35% from
6 months ago. If you have no shares, then do us all
a favour, and SHUT THE F_CK UP!
I am trying to determine what a reasonable
forward earnings PE for SBUX is. Find no remotely similar
peers for comparison. Yahoo Profile page lists SBUX
being in the Food Processing sector. No companies on
the list are great for comparison as most are full
service or fast food restaurants. Most have very low PEs.
SBUX mainstay product costs less than a meal and
people come back repeatedly out of habit/pure enjoyment.
(Anyone know what percent of their profit SBUX generates
off of its restaurants and sales of miscellaneous
products?) Reaching far out for comparison to a mature, food
related company here: SBUX has very different product,
image and clientele than say, McDonalds, but similarity
is that MCD's mainstay product is relatively
inexpensive, convenient, has name recognition and lots of
repeat business. If my math is right MCD current PE for
this years earnings estimate is 32, next years 28.
SBUX seems to have more growth potential than MCD, and
not as much competition. Not apples/apple, I know,
but. . . . At it's high early this year SBUX had a PE
of about 61 for this year's earnings estimate.
Obviously unsupportable. Microsoft only has a forward
earning PE of about 51, Intel 30. SBUX PE Now at about 34
next year's earnings. Unless investors are searching
for places to put their money I can't see SBUX
holding above PE of more than 42 (next year's estimates),
which would put it's price at 35. If it zooms about
that level, it's getting risky, unless earnings
forcasts change drastically.
Image: Still has appeal to young and
Competition: Numerous regional
chains, independent coffee houses.
Maturing company. Hasn't peeked but not the go-go stock it
was the first few years after it came public.
Delivering steady earnings from repeat food & beverage
business. Moves it closer to the safety of other
food/beverage related businesses that are a mainstay in risky
Growth: Continuing to expand core business worldwide
while world economy is improving. Identifying new
markets for expansion. Worldwide expansion potential of
core businesses still seems pretty good but more
difficult than domestic.
Risk: Moving too far away from
its core business.
Sorry for long post, but
looking for good observations from others about
reasonable expectations for this stock.
lost it's focus. it i svery yesterday as a
concept and stock to own. It is very richly priced at
this level. Management is inconsistent and frequnetly
disappoints. owning at this level is very risky.
mature into a real company, but so far, they are long on
hype.....and completely unable to address core issues like
labor costs, slow and poor customer service, and
underdesigned stores (too small). All of this will come to a
head in the next year and bad news will prevail.
