Why Coffee Stocks Stay Strong

coffee stocksEven in a world caught in the throes of recession and economic decline, coffee stocks can provide a safe haven for investors. Many of these stocks continue to experience growth while others wither on the vine. They may not be as exciting as energy or precious metal investments, but coffee stocks, in their own way, represent another commodity that seems to have lasting value.

Even as people cut corners in their budgets and companies try to find ways to reduce overhead, coffee remains in high demand. Apparently, this refreshment is one of the last things that people and businesses will trim from their spending schedules. This is good news for coffee producers and coffee stocks.

Coffee Roasters Inc. is a coffee stocks from a much larger company, yet it has seen a similar growth pattern. Its market cap one year ago was already more than $3 billion. Since then it has grown to nearly $15 billion.

Peet’s Coffee and Tea is a business somewhere in between the size of these previous two. In the last year, its market cap has grown from about $500 million to nearly $800 million. Its profits last year totaled almost $20 million.

Starbucks is the King Kong of this bunch. Even as big as it already was, this last year was just as kind to Starbucks as it was to the lesser coffee stocks. It grew from a market cap of $18 billion to more than $30 billion. This leader of the coffee stocks has a current YTD return of more than 25 percent.
