Some stocks just need a little time to perk back up. That was the case with the bullish sentiment in this summer's Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) Duel.
While the shares initially fell, the company won back investors like a steaming cup of Joe in the morning. Bill Barker (TMF Max) argued the ultimately victorious bullish side while Rick Munarriz (TMF Edible), supported by the Voting Fools, played the bean bear.
Victory? Bill Barker. Congrats!
