What are analysts saying about Starbucks stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Starbucks stock:

  • Buckingham Research analysts commented, "We are reiterating our NEUTRAL rating and lowering our PT to $54 from $59. SBUX continues to grow same-store sales, expand already impressive margins, improve returns, generate attractive FCF and grow EPS in a very challenging environment. The company also continues to offer significant LT growth. Unfortunately, it is also undeniable that the business is slowing. First quarter comps increased only 3%, the slowest rate of growth since the financial crisis. We now have increased conviction in our earlier view that there was downside risk to guidance and are lowering our EPS estimates further below the forecasted range. Accordingly, we see valuation contraction continuing for this consensus-long." (1/27/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Starbucks is strengthening its portfolio with significant innovation around beverages and core food offerings. Starbucks’s operating fundamentals remain strong – solid global retail footprint, successful innovations, best-in-class loyalty program and digital offerings. Again, digital initiatives like mobile order/pay, delivery services and third-party loyalty partnerships can stimulate stronger sales trends in the Americas. CPG growth across the world as well as China/Asia expansion will also enhance value creation.Starbucks’ shares have outperformed the Zacks categorized Retail-Food & Restaurants industry in the last six-month period. However, business in Europe is clouded by the economic uncertainties in the Northern region and deflation in the Eurozone. Accelerated global employee and digital investments can keep profits under strain." (1/20/2017)

  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "Another heavy year of partner wage step-up."We also believe Yum China's digital success ($1 billion in cashless payment sales representing 20 percent of total sales, with >64 million loyalty members in less than one year) is a positive read-through for Starbucks. We hope to hear about initial adoption results during the upcoming earnings call," (10/19/2016)
