    • Greetings Mr. Parts

      And happy new year (I hope). Being out in the middle of nowhere, I can't tell you much about SBUX, as the closest is Buffettsville. I have only been to starbucks once, and I don't remember if it was Denver, KC, or Omaha. It was a nice place, but a little too preppy for this cowboy.

      Please ask yourself a couple of questions. Did I buy this as an investment or is this a speculation? Is this more risky now than it was $22? Has the business actually changed that much from where you found it atractive in the first place? I rode Merck from $46 down to $24 and back up. I kick myself from not loading the boat in the twenties and I came close to selling several times. Maybe need to step back and see how low it goes. You are pretty good at picking bottoms and maybe you could sell now and take the tax loss. Just some ideas. I really don't think SBUX is going away any time soon.
      Good Luck and I am sure you will make the right choice.

      • greetings and 'tanks' for the note re: sbux ...
        speaking of 'tanks' ....nice mkt .... !!!

        brings to mind Monday, October 19, 1987 ... I was
        there ..... and the mkt took a good hit the previous
        friday ... one "small" difference is the fed
        boosted rates that friday, Oct 16, 1987, so maybe
        we do ok monday ... if this rate continues we'll
        be at 11,500 DJIA sometime next Friday ...

        I'm Ok on SBUX .. my only comments made in case
        someone else climbed aboard .... for that I wish
        I'd kept my trap shup .... but that's why we have
        the warning labels on the sides of da package
        (Caveat Emptor) kinda deal.......
        Also, I see FMD is s(t)inking back down .......

        more later,
        tanks again,
