Starbucks Is Piping Hot, But This Surprising Stock May Be the Better Buy

The world's most dominant purveyor of java, Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX), operates nearly 35,000 stores worldwide. At Starbucks' investor day earlier this month, the company announced aggressive international expansion plans. A small percentage of these stores will open in the U.S., but Starbucks' main focus will be China, where the company aims to hit 9,000 stores by 2025.
