on a day like this SBUX should be down
more than 2%.
i have oredi commit 1/2 of my $$$
for SBUX & will invest the other 1/2 if
goes lower or on its way up.
looking ahead SBUX
is 30 times next yr's
earnings which is same as
MCD, but SBUX will
grow much faster than MCD and
cap is only 2X Sales while MCD is 5X
the current price is cheap enuf for me to
in this monopoly.
My sarcasm has apparently been misconstrued. I
thought I was "putting down" so called "analysts." That's
why I have made reference to the WSJ article which
stated the dart throwing monkey stock picker made money,
but analysts' recommendations showed a loss compared
to the S&P. Sorry if my comments were confusing.
people post inane messages: They are the same
kind of people who wander the streets of any large
city, except they have computers; we all have
psychological needs; those of greed, envy, bitterness,
attention, come out in verbiage, most of it inane, some of
it hurtful. The "dumber" a posting, the more
response is given by the rest of us; wouldn't you feel
better if you needed attention and that was the only way
you knew how to get it.
Nice up day for Sbux;
for putting up with senseless postings.
becomes the reality. On the one hand, why mess
with a winning company? On the other hand, you don't
want to lose out on a possible new avenue for growth.
Hopefully, they didn't jump in too soon and did their
research. Time will tell. Probably not for several qtrs. If
it does pay off, we should really fly in the future.
the internet is all about selling and selling
requires a well known, quality name brand. SBUX has a well
known, quality name brand and therefore has all that is
needed to make money selling so much more than coffee.
There is a great deal of potential for SBUX on the net.
people post these kinds of messages - why are
they on the message board of a stock they hate? The
only thing I can figure is they lost money already on
the stock, or they are short, or they want to drive
the price down so they can buy our shares cheap when
we sell. They always make the most generalized and
ridiculous arguments. And they ignore all the good news. The
increases in revenue, growth, stores are packed, etc.
Why do people pay more for products - better quality
comes to mind. Better service comes to mind. Nice
atmosphere comes to mind.
If SBUX ever went to $10 -
I'd be able to retire rather soon.
that 1.75 is much to pay for a very large and
delicious cup of coffee. I was able to afford Starbucks
even when I was still in school and hadn't made any
money in the market. Your "yuppie wannabe" comment is
really ridiculous. Many people happen too enjoy a really
good cup of coffee, I can't believe you have a problem
with that. SBUX will prosper because they are the
stand alone quality name brand in a rapidly growing
sector. No one can touch them. $4 billion today --->
$20 billion in five years or less.
1. You seem to imply that people have stopped
buying coffee at SBUX. Wrong! Same store sales continue
to increase and the numbers show that more than 5%
of the recent 8% increase in same store sales was
due to, surprise, increased sales! (not price
2. Your attitude toward SBUX reeks of bitterness,
you get fired recently?
3. Ever consider the
possibility that people go into SBUX because they make a
4. "This company sucks, period."???
Hey, now there is some in-depth analysis! Perhaps you
are looking for a redneck company to invest in. So
why don't you go to the John Deere board and share
some of your deep analysis there...
