Starbucks (SBUX) Stock Higher, Ups Price of Some Drinks: (Released: 12/07/2016)
Interestingly, Starbucks decision to raise prices of some of their drinks also increased the prices of their stock to $56.65 in pre-market trading Tuesday. Starbucks recently revealed in a statement that they will increase the prices of their drinks by 10 cents to 20 cents more for certain sizes of brewed coffee and 10 cents to 30 cents more for espresso beverages and tea lattes. The move increases the average customer ticket by about 1%. But 65% of beverage prices have not changed, Starbucks said. What’s even more surprising is that some people don’t mind or don’t even notice the price change. In any case, TheStreet Ratings has a “Buy” rating rating with a score of B on the stock.

Starbucks plans new upscale chains: (Released: 14/07/2016)
Starbucks is about to get more fancy as the company will create a new brand of stores called “Starbucks Reserve-only” that will provide premium, small lot reserve coffee in a more cafe-like atmosphere than the current stores. Additionally, Starbucks also announced an investment and global licensing agreement with Italian boutique bakery Princi. According to TheStreet, shares of Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) are higher by 0.85% to $56.96 in pre-market trading on Thursday. Princi will also be the exclusive food provider at Starbucks’ flagship store: The Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room at Seattle.

Americans Prefer Coffee To Stocks: (Released:14/07/2016)
We all love our coffee but how much are we willing to spend on it? Apparently a lot, even more than the idea of investing. According to Investing, 61% of Americans drink coffee daily as opposed to the 48% that are investing in the market. Additionally, it seems that people are more interested in reloading their Starbucks card than contributing to their retirement saving plans. In 2014, Starbucks customers added a staggering $614 billion, resulting to a 93.2% increase in money added to the cards compared to the miniscule 4.1% added to their retirement plans. According to Bankrate, 53% of the population stated they do not have enough money to purchase stocks. I wonder where the money went to? Hmm…
