Starbucks' Untapped Opportunity

The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Bill Barker discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX  ) hit a new all-time high this morning in the wake of second-quarter earnings. Sales were up 7% in the U.S. The coffee retailer is rolling out La Boulange in the U.S. over the next 18 months and is doubling-down on China. Will Starbucks continue to serve up big returns for investors? How much of its future growth is based on La Boulange? How great is the opportunity in China? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts tackle those questions and talk about the future of Starbucks.

Starbucks' big rival
As Starbucks stretches out more into food, McDonald's may become an even bigger rival than it already is. McDonald's turned in a dismal year in 2012, underperforming the broader market by 25%. Looking ahead, can the Golden Arches reclaim its throne atop the restaurant industry or will this unsettling trend continue? Our top analyst weighs in on McDonald's future in a recent premium report on the company. Click here now to find out whether a buying opportunity has emerged for this global juggernaut.

The relevant video segment can be found between 0:58 and 8:23.
