15:11 EDTFLFoot Locker technical notes before earnings
The stock is in a classically bullish uptrend, testing down to support ahead of earnings. If the news continues to be bullish, the first resistance level of note on the way up is the life high at $74.95. If that level is broken on the upside, a run to the $80 area or higher would be possible. Shares would however be extended on a short-term basis technically were that to happen. If the news is a bearish surprise, the first support level to watch would be at the bottom of the price channel at $71.06, the 30-day moving average. A breakdown below that support would snap the uptrend. Next support levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $68.50, $65.80, and $63.66.

06:12 EDTMCDStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
