Starbucks Is Piping Hot, But This Surprising Stock May Be the Better Buy

Starbucks Is Piping Hot, But This Surprising Stock May Be the Better Buy

The world's most dominant purveyor of java, Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX), operates nearly 35,000 stores worldwide. At Starbucks' investor day earlier this month, the company announced aggressive international expansion plans. A small percentage of these stores will open in the U.S., but Starbucks' main focus will be China, where the company aims to hit 9,000 stores by 2025.
