Top 5 China Stocks For 2019

Your morning caffeine fix is getting more expensive. Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) recently raised the price of its brewed coffee by $0.10 to $0.20, which brings the price of a tall cup to between $1.95 and $2.15, the second such increase in the same number of years.

At first glance, this makes sense for the company as Starbucks has experienced a significant decline in margins. Through the first two fiscal quarters of this year, the company’s operating income was 15.6% of total revenue versus 18.8% in the prior year.

But while the company is experiencing falling margins, store closures, and price increases in the Americas, the company is aggressively building new stores in China. Is Starbucks funding growth in China with U.S. price increases?

Starbucks is shifting spending from U.S. to China

In no uncertain terms, Starbucks has noted that it expects growth to come from China. In the recently reported second quarter, Starbucks opened 216 net new stores in China/Asia Pacific vs. 187 in the Americas. Note that this is in addition to buying the full rights to its East China joint venture last year for $1.4 billion, which transferred 1,477 stores to the company.
