I am a longtime holder of Starbucks and, of course, love the stock. While a lot of things look rosy with the company (negligible debt, decent cash, great management, smart expansion), the company has a p/e close to 50, but a growth rate under the best case scenario of about 30%. Thus, under basic traditional analysis, it seems to me the company has reached a point where it is overvalued or at least the price should be stagnant for a year or two. As much as it pains me, I am thinking of selling. Any advice out there? Am I missing something?

Thanks, LostPros.

P.S. This my first post ever! I recognize there is a SBUX board, but have found these boards very insightful. I just joined and plan on staying for the long-term as much for the boards as for the great newsletter.
