Starbucks stock still in ‘sweet spot’

Starbucks stock hit an all-time high Wednesday, and the CNBC "Fast Money" traders said there was still room to run.

"Their Asian growth is absolutely incredible, and they're talking about that accelerating into the next year, into the next two years," OptionMonster's Pete Najarian said. "So, when you look at this company, I don't think it's over with. I think there's a lot more upside left in Starbucks."

Despite a 40 percent year-to-date gain, shares of Starbucks still held plenty of promise because of costs and a strong leader in CEO Howard Schultz, Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners said.

"I'm long, staying with it," he said. "Coffee prices right now relatively benign. Costs are coming down. Schultz doing a great job. It's in the sweet spot. Stay with it."

Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital agreed.

"And one of the best global brands there is without any taint whatsoever, that translates into every language," he added.
