Wow, how long did you work on that? FYI, Grimm already has board idiot title locked up - but you look to be a solid # 2. Smell like a solid # 2 anyway.
Agree that it's smart to keep the employees happy. Sbux's biggest worries are maintaining adequate supplies of quality staff and quality beans. Neither is a given, particularly given continuing aggressive growth.
You answered your own question. If Schultz goes on to promote the stock - and I think he does - then wouldn't he want crammer to continue to pump the stock? Think jimmy would pump if the performance doesn't meet or exceed his expectations?
If not to pump the stock, what's your theory on why Howard appears on crammers show so frequently? Push his presidential aspirations? I don't think so.
Gee, here's a thought - mobile order and pay means more and more customers skipping the line. Means less need for labor. Less labor means higher profits. Unless you're a socialist, isn't that good?
I think so.
Lol, try and add value by talking like a six year old, that's effective. Thanks for the resume though.
Oh, and camp, I'm thinking CYO summer camp - am I right?
Schultz doesn't care about comps? LOL. Even if he didn't own more than a billion bucks worth of shares (not to mention options) he most definitely cares about comps.
