Today, Fool.com analysts Ron Gross, James Early, and Joe Magyer join Chris Hill to look at Starbucks' incredible quarter. Post-earnings shares were up 10% on strong same store-sales.
As Ron points out, the company was more promotional this quarter than in the past, which can be a risk to margins, but on the whole the company is still performing very well.
In addition to raising guidance, the company also announced that it'll add 1,300 stores in the next year.
