Starbucks president: 'It was a record quarter'

Starbucks shares tumbled 4 percent in after-hours trading on Thursday following earnings that missed Wall Street expectations.

"Without a doubt, every business segment contributed to our performance. It was a record quarter for us," Starbucks President Kevin Johnson told Jim Cramer on "Mad Money." "And I think in every business there is just a great story underlying those numbers."

While Starbucks reported in-line earnings on slightly weaker than expected revenue, its 6 percent same-store sales growth was slower than anticipated.

"We posted 6 percent increase in comps globally, but if you go region by region, there is a story under each of those regions," Johnson said.

The increase in sales were driven mainly by sales in the U.S., which helped to offset slower growth of 1 percent in Europe.

"This is not the first time Starbucks has run into a speed bump, and in the past, whenever the stock has pulled back it has been a buying opportunity," Cramer said.
