17:30 EDTSBUXStarbucks is launching Mobile Order & Pay in the UK
Starbucks is launching Mobile Order & Pay in the UK, allowing customers to pre-order their favourite drinks and food in over 150 London stores and save time in the queue. The company said, "Rolling out from 1st of October, the new feature, available exclusively within the Starbucks App, offers customers greater convenience: the ability to customise their drink and food orders as well as time savings of up to 10-15 minutes. Using the App allows customers to order ahead from the Starbucks menu. Following confirmation, orders are immediately sent to the chosen local Starbucks store where baristas begin preparing the order and an approximate collection time is sent to the customer to pick up their order directly from their barista - skipping the queue. Users of the app are also rewarded with exclusive opportunities to earn Stars with the My Starbucks Rewards loyalty programme. The App has received a very positive response from customers in the United States where it has been available since December 2014. According to customer feedback, the App typically saves commuters and working people 10-15 minutes in their day; parents with young children find it easier to order ahead than stand in line, while speech and hearing-impaired customers have hailed the App as a 'game changer' in helping them to get their correct order, fast."

11:38 EDTPNRAMcDonald's rises as analysts weigh in on fast food sector
Shares of McDonald's (MCD) rose in morning trading after Credit Suisse upgraded the Big Mac maker to Outperform. Some McDonald's competitors were also active after Telsey Advisory initiated coverage on multiple companies in the quick-serve and fast casual restaurant space. WHAT'S NEW: Credit Suisse analyst Jason West upgraded McDonald's to Outperform and raised his price target on its shares to $112 from $110. West said that more improvements for the company are "forthcoming" even after CEO Steve Easterbrook announced positive operational and financial steps. The analyst added that checks suggest that U.S. same-store sales trends are beginning to turn as a result of operational and menu changes, as well as some new product wins. West said he sees 5%-6% possible upside to current 2016 expectations and views a favorable risk/reward of roughly 2%-3% downside as opposed to 20% upside, even if the turnaround is "fairly modest." NOTABLE INITIATIONS: Separately, Telsey Advisory Group analyst Bob Derrington initiated coverage of several companies in the restaurant sector, stamping Panera (PNRA) with an Outperform rating and a $225 price target. The analyst noted that the company's plan to become a better dining alternative continues to build traction and that same-store sales trends are likely to speed up in 2016 and 2017. Derrington initiated Jack in the Box (JACK) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $95, as he sees it being positioned for strong appreciation in the year ahead based on management's plan to revitalize and differentiate the Jack in the Box brand. The analyst also expects the company to further differentiate, improve the returns, and position its Qdoba brand for quick growth and recycle its franchise cash flow for better shareholder returns. Derrington initiated coverage of Chipotle (CMG) with a Market Perform rating and an $800 price target, saying that despite the firm's positive prospects due to better-than-most-peer same-store sales and revenue growth, the company's margin risk makes him take a more cautious approach to his rating of the stock. The analyst also tagged Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) with a Market Perform rating and a $220 price target, noting that the company's strong growth prospects seem to be reflected in its premium valuation. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, McDonald's shares rose 1.6% to $97.49, Panera shares gained 0.9% to $191, Jack in the Box advanced 1.1% to $78.24, Chipotle added 1% to $715 and Buffalo Wild Wings were 1.3% higher at $195.68.
