Brian Sozzi, CEO of Belus Capital Advisors, has speculated that Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) may team with Uber to create a delivery system for lattes.

With store traffic dropping for Starbucks, Sozzi feels a partnership with Uber would be mutually beneficial, providing a bigger footprint for Uber and an efficient and cost-effective delivery infrastructure for Starbucks. Sozzi feels that Thursday's Investors Day may bring further clarity to the plans for growing the delivery business.
