10:26 EDTDNKN, SBUXBMO Capital upbeat on Starbucks, lukewarm on Dunkin'
BMO Capital initiated coverage of Starbucks (SBUX) with an Outperform rating in a note to investors, citing what it sees as the company's many growth opportunities. The firm was less upbeat on Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), as the firm said that the company faces tougher competition than Starbucks, and advised investors to wait for a more compelling entry point in the stock before buying. WHAT'S NEW: Starbucks' multiple growth opportunities make it somewhat unique among large-cap restaurant stocks, BMO analyst Andrew Streizik contended. The company's U.S. comparative sales have probably bottomed and could begin to reaccelerate, partly due to its innovation, higher food sales, and marketing strength, the analyst believes. Additionally, Starbucks' margin expansion could exceed its long-term guidance, partly due to lower than expected cost of goods and efficiencies from its expansion of food and day parts, according to Streizik. Starbucks could increase the amount of money it returns to shareholders or make accretive acquisitions, given its strong balance sheet, the analyst stated. He set a $56 price target on the stock. Conversely, Streizik said he was worried about the sustainability of Dunkin's U.S. comparative sales, as the company's U.S. comps are two to three times more volatile than those of Starbucks. Dunkin' is more exposed to competition than Starbucks, since Dunkin's drinks are less differentiated than the competition, the analyst stated. Dunkin's need to compete with fast food restaurants, which traditionally offer heavy discounts, makes it more dependent on discounts, added Streizik, who set a $52 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Starbucks added 0.2% to $48.25, while Dunkin gained 0.7% to $48.33.
