11:33 EDTMCD, WDAYWorkday rises after reportedly winning record deal with McDonald's
Shares of cloud-based human capital management solution provider Workday (WDAY) are rising after the company is said to have won a deal with global fast food giant McDonald's (MCD) that would be the biggest in its history. WHAT'S NEW: JMP Securities analysts Patrick Walravens and Peter Lowry wrote in a note to investors this morning that the firm's checks indicate that Workday was awarded the human capital management business at McDonald’s, which the analysts said could be the biggest deal in the company’s history. The firm increased its estimate for Workday's Q2 billings to $185M from $182M, noting that both are above the company's guidance of $180M in billing for Q2. JMP maintains its Market Outperform rating and $126 price target on Workday, but the analysts noted that they like the stock over the longer-term, citing its market leading position in the Software-as-a-Service Enterprise Resource Planning space, which is set to triple from 2013 to 2020. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, shares of Workday gained $2.43, or 2.9%, to $86.34.

06:18 EDTMCDMcDonald's customization kiosks fail to reach drive-thru customers, QSR reports
McDonald's' new "Create Your Taste" kiosks in all its franchises, allowing for customers to customize their orders, may present a problem since they can only be accessed from inside the restaurants, and McDonald's allegedly receives as much as 70% of its sales from the drive-thru, QSR Magazine reports. The expensive new kiosks are expected to cost franchises between $100,000-$150,000 to install, the report says. "At a cost of $100,000-$150,000 per restaurant to implement, it has a limited upside," Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, told QSR. "I think this is more a stunt to appeal to Wall Street investors instead of being practical for the restaurant operator." Reference Link

Stephens said its checks suggest solid trends for Workday but a slightly more difficult selling environment this year compared to last, prompting it to reiterate its Equal Weight rating on the stock despite its recent selloff. The firm said the risk/reward for owning a "market leading" asset in the largest identified software market seems to be improving, but lowered its price target on the name to $85 from $100 due to multiple contraction.

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.
