Top Performing Stocks To Buy Right Now

Shares of Starbucks (SBUX ) popped again Friday as part of a nearly week-long climb. Despite this recent surge, SBUX stock is still down big over the last year. So what has investors excited about the coffee giant again, and is now the time to buy Starbucks on the dip?

Starbucks saw its stock price tumble on June 19 after it said it will close 150 underperforming company-operated locations in densely penetrated areas in 2019—it has historically closed up to 50 of these locations every year. The company also noted that it expects to post just 1% global comps growth this quarter

Yet, shares of Starbucks have fought their way back in July. The company also announced recently that it bumped up its share buyback plan by $10 billion to $25 billion and upped its quarterly dividend by 20%.

 

Furthermore, the company’s digital push seems to be paying off. Starbucks added 5 million new digitally registered customers since April and gained 2 million new active Starbucks Rewards members year-over-year to hit 15 million. The firm expects these digital initiatives, along with others, to contribute one to two points of comps growth in the U.S. in fiscal 2019.
