Despite three days of gains, U.S. financial markets looked likely to continue to deliver volatility for the foreseeable future. The markets’ wild swings might be nauseating, but they also offer investors ultra-low entry points for high-quality stocks. Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) is one such equity that deserves to be on your buy list. SBUX stock has fallen 20% over the past week on coronavirus worries, but the firm looks likely to bounce back from the carnage when all is said and done.

Starbucks has already lived through one recession in 2008, which should give investors confidence that the coffee chain can do it again. Plus, Starbucks’ strong online presence, drive-through options and customer initiatives make it a great pick both during the coronavirus crisis itself as well as the recession that’s to follow.
SBUX Stock Has Staying Power
With roughly a third of the world’s population under lockdown, restaurants are understandably suffering. Starbucks is not immune to the challenge of lower foot traffic and reduced spending, but it looks like the coffee chain might be able to make the best of it and outperform peers.
While coffee isn’t strictly essential, it’s become a must-have morning pick-me-up for many people. As more and more states call for lockdowns in America, Starbucks has been able to continue serving customers via its drive-through locations.
Foot-traffic data shows that Starbucks actually saw the number of customers it served rise during the first week of March when worries about coronavirus in the U.S. ramped up. Of course, data from the remainder of the month is likely to show a decline, but it’s worth noting that people were unwilling to forfeit their cup-of-Joe even as virus fears increased — a good sign for Starbucks for the remainder of this crisis.
