During the quarter, Starbucks announced plans to raise drink prices by 5c-20c and announced a music partnership with Spotify. The company said it will close all 23 La Boulange retail locations, as La Boulange stores "are not sustainable for the company's long-term growth."

BMO Capital said it expects the company to exceed expectations over the next several years, and it kept an Outperform rating on the shares. BTIG recently initiated Starbucks with a Buy rating and $64 target. PRICE ACTION: Ahead of Thursday afternoon's earnings report, shares are down 0.4% to $56.47.
