Currently there are 20 analysts that rate Starbucks Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and six rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Starbucks Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the positive front, Arcos Dorados Holdings ( ARCO), up 4.2%, Canterbury Park Holding Corporation ( CPHC), up 2.1%, and Premier Exhibitions ( PRXI), up 2%, were all gainers within the leisure industry with Tim Hortons ( THI) being today's featured leisure industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the leisure industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Leisure&Entert ( PEJ) while those bearish on the leisure industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
