Starbucks: Cup Half-Empty or Half-Full?

The stock has stumbled recently, but the company appears to be doing just fine, and we expect a refill of stock value soon.

Shares of Starbucks (symbol SBUX) have been on a caffeine high. On April 13, the price hit an all-time high of $62 on general optimism about consumer spending and particular enthusiasm for a slew of Starbucks ventures. These include licensing its coffee and tea brands for Keurig K-cups, international expansion, fresh cafe concepts and strong prospects for its global pre-packaged coffee business.
