yea after 3 two for one stock splits. 60 to 30, 30 to 15, 15 to 7.5 and 7.5 rallies to 12.50 sounds about right. so your 1 share is now 8 shares @ 12.50 goes to a current $100 per share, sounds good to me.
If you have not noticed there are about 6.5 Billion people in the world, this is also the population that Starbucks is courting, not just the 325 million in America. Times have changed, think globally.
who cares... there only KILLER whales...as long as shareholders make money, that what really counts, God gave us control over animals in Genesis and we should exploit them to the fullest. Do they taste like chicken?
Maximum pessimism brings maximum gains. On 3/9/2009 when there was blood in the streets for the whole economy and especially SBUX when they closed 600 under-performing stores their stock price went to $3.79 a share on a split adj basis. Now they are ~ $55 a share and the bashing is unrelenting for weak performance. I'll take my gains over the last seven years, hold tight and if the idiots drive this stock to an insanely low lever I'll "back up the truck" on this stock again. Its world domination of success will continue in marketing and the use of technology to drive sales and profits. IMHO of course.
Peace to all.
