What are Wall Street analysts saying about Starbucks stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Starbucks stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Starbucks posted better-than-expected earnings but failed to meet the consensus mark for revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. The company also lifted its full-year profit view considering the new U.S. corporate tax cut. Earnings and sales grew 25% and 6%, respectively, in the quarter. Its global comps growth was disappointing at 2%. The U.S. comps growth was 2% as holiday promotions and merchandise did not perform well. Given the muted start to the year, full-year comps are now expected at the low end of 3-5%, with improvement expected in the second half banking on operational and sales-driving efforts, innovation around cold beverages, tea, and plant-based milks. Meanwhile, China remained the fastest growth market, with comps growth of 6%. Overall, we are encouraged by its best-in-class loyalty program, digital offerings and higher strategic investments in China, while trimming down non-performing U.S. units." (1/30/2018)
- 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We are lowering our rating on CarMax to Perform from Outperform. For some time, we have highlighted KMX as one of the most innovative omni-channel business models in the Hardlines sector. Our upbeat, longer term outlook for KMX is unchanged. That said, in the near term, shares of KMX have tended to swoon on even modest changes in underlying fundamentals. As we study carefully the back half of FY17 (Feb. 2018), we are increasingly concerned that despite significant internal and external tailwinds, more challenged used car unit comp comparisons could disrupt recent top- line momentum at KMX and spur a re-setting lower of current Street forecasts."

Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
