Investors should not sell their Starbucks shares because of the recent cash register outage, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Monday.
Cramer made his remarks after the coffee giant experienced a widespread systems outage in its U.S. and Canada-based stores Friday night, leading to many stores closing early and giving away free drinks.
Nevertheless, Cramer said, the technical malfunction should not dissuade investors from buying or holding the stock because "anyone who saw those numbers last week was dazzled."
Last week, the company reported quarterly earnings and revenue that met Wall Street's expectations. Starbucks also reported that same-store sales rose 7 percent in the quarter. "I was looking for 5 percent comps," Cramer said.
