Slowing U.S. sales and comps.Comps in SBUX's Americas segment slowed quarter over quarter to 50 basis points below their two-year average. Looking ahead, large comps (+4%) will also challenge forward sales. Moderating food sales.The contribution that food makes to comps is moderating, down to 16% in the latest period from a previous 20%. Food's contribution to aggregate comps also fell to 2% from an earlier 3%. Earnings quality.The quality of Starbucks' earnings is less than meets the eye. The company repurchased about $1.6 billion of shares in its latest quarter, or more than triple the amount from a year ago. Without the buyback, SBUX would have earned just $0.38 per share, falling below Wall Street consensus. A weakening global economy.SBUX investors' greatest fear should be the possibility of moderating global economic growth (or even a recession). If either of those happen, demand elasticity for the coffee chain's premium-priced products will face pressure. The bottom line: Slowing growth at a peak multiple seems to like a bitter combination for investors to swallow.
SBUX has been pushing resistance the last 2 days and hasn't been particularly volatile post-earnings.
It looks like $60 will generate a breakout and yield a price target of $75.
