14:43 EDTSBUX Starbucks Coffee October weekly 77 straddle priced for 3.1% move into Q4
13:43 EDTSBUXEarnings Preview: Starbucks sees Q4 adjusted EPS of 73c-75c
Starbucks (SBUX) is scheduled to report fourth quarter results after the market close on Thursday, October 30, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Starbucks purchases and roasts whole bean coffees and sells them, along with brewed coffees, Italian-style espresso beverages, cold blended beverages, food items, teas, and beverage-related accessories and equipment, primarily through company-operated retail stores. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 74c on revenue of $4.23B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 73c-75c on revenue of $4.18B-$4.3B. LAST QUARTER: Starbucks reported third quarter EPS of 56c on revenue of $4.2B, beating estimates for $66c and $4.14B, respectively.Starbucks said global comparable store sales increased 6%, with Americas comp growth of 6%, U.S. comp growth of 7%, EMEA comp growth of 3% and China/Asia Pacific comp growth of 7%. Looking ahead, the company forecast Q4 adjusted EPS 73c-75c and narrowed its fiscal year 2014 EPS view excluding items to $2.65-$2.67, against estimates at that time of $2.67. Starbucks sees fiscal year 2015 adjusted EPS growth of 15%-20% over FY14 and FY15 revenue growth of 10% or greater. The company sees FY15 global comparable store sales growth in the mid single digits. NEWS: On its Q3 earnings conference call, Starbucks forecast long-term annual EPS growth of 15%-20% and said its FY14 operating margin is likely to be up 200bps over FY13. During the quarter, Starbucks announced it would acquire the remaining 60.5% of Starbucks Japan for $913M; the company expects this transaction will be immediately accretive on a non-GAAP basis. Starbucks said it will introduce for the first time Mobile Order and Pay in stores within the Portland area before the end of the calendar year, which will enable customers to place orders in advance of their visit and pick them up at their selected Starbucks location. On December 5, Starbucks said it will open the interactive Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room dedicated to roasting, coffee education and increased availability of their small-lot Starbucks Reserve coffees. The consolidation of small-batch roasting will allow the company to expand their Starbucks Reserve coffee line to 1,500 locations globally as well as open over 100 stores designed to highlight these coffees. Ken Langone, CEO of Invemed Associates, said on CNBC that he initiated a new position in Starbucks. STREET RESEARCH: Oppenheimer believes that Starbucks can meet the consensus Q4 comp sales growth outlook of 6% and beat the consensus 2015 comp sales growth outlook of 5%. The firm believes that commodity cost fears for the company are overblown. Wells Fargo expects the company's Q4 same store sales to come in at 6.3%, driven by strong traffic trends, higher prices and gains from food. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Starbucks shares are down about 2.3%. Ahead of tonight's earnings report, shares are up 0.7% to $77.09.
12:42 EDTSBUXStarbucks technical notes ahead of earnings
In the past three months the shares have traded flat to down, underperforming the broader averages. The trading range in the period has been wide, with a recovery off earlier lows that brought the shares up to flat. The range has been from $71 at the low to $78 at the high. Those two extremes may help in understanding where post-earnings price reactions could go. If the news is positive, a breakout above the high of the range and close to where shares are currently trading would have resistance at $80.45 and then at $82.50, the 52-week high and life high for the stock. A bullish consideration is that on a very long term chart the price action of the last year resembles a bullish pennant pattern. A breakout above $80 would see the pattern become active and would have bullish implications for future price. Without resistance above the life-high, the $85 area could be probed. If the news disappoints, the counter-reaction could be just as strong but in the opposite direction. First support would be at $74.12 with a test of the range low at $71 next as a possible downside target. A move below $71 would void the bullish pennant.

16:36 EDTOCNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a report showed existing homes sales hit their fastest pace in a year during September and Apple (AAPL) gave a better than expected sales forecast for its December quarter. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales beat estimates in September, rising 2.4% from the prior month to a 5.17M rate. In China, GDP slowed to 7.3% year-over-year growth pace in Q3 from 7.5% in Q2, though that was slightly better than expected. Chinese industrial production expanded at a 8.0% rate in September, which was well above projections and up from 6.9% growth in August. China's retail sales grew 11.6% in September compared to the prior year, which was nearly in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple rose $2.71, or 2.72%, to $102.47 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and gave a better than expected forecast for its sales during the holiday quarter. Following last night's report, analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald said the iPhone maker "executed impressively" in Q4 and provided a strong outlook for Q1. The firm, which believes investors should "start thinking more boldly" about the company, raised its price target for shares to $143 from $123 and kept a Buy rating on the stock... Five of the Dow's 30 members reported on their quarterly results this morning and Coca-Cola (KO) was the clear loser in the bunch. The soda giant's shares dropped $2.61, or 6.03%, to $40.68 after its revenue missed expectations, it warned that it now expects to be below its long-term EPS growth target for 2014, and the company announced new cost-saving measures. Among the other four, McDonald’s (MCD) fell 0.63%, Verizon (VZ) added 0.43%, United Technologies (UTX) gained 0.49%, and Travelers (TRV) rose 1.12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were medical equipment manufacturer Waters (WAT), which rose $9.63, or 9.87%, to $107.17, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which advanced $4.27, or 7.31%, to $62.65. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocwen Financial (OCN), which plunged $4.78, or 18.2%, to $21.48 after the company was called out by the New York Department of Financial Services for erroneously dated letters to borrowers. Benjamin Lawsky, the Superintendent for the NYDFS, stated in his letter to the company that if his department concludes it cannot trust Ocwen's systems and processes, "then it cannot trust Ocwen is complying with the law." Also lower following their earnings reports were Mexican restaurant operator Chipotle (CMG), which fell $45.48, or 6.96%, to $607.55, and defense contractor Lockheed Martin (LMT), which slid $2.92, or 1.66%, to $172.61. INDEXES: The Dow gained 215.14, or 1.31%, to 16,614.81, the Nasdaq advanced 103.40, or 2.4%, to 4,419.48, and the S&P 500 rose 37.27, or 1.96%, to 1,941.28.
