Starbucks slips after announcing more store closures, cutting Q3 SSS view

Shares of Starbucks (SBUX) are trading lower in after-hours trading after the coffee giant announced a set of strategic priorities and operational initiatives to accelerate growth and create long-term shareholder value, with CEO Kevin Johnson saying the company's recent performance is "not acceptable." STRATEGIC PRIORITIES: In an effort to optimize its U.S. store portfolio, Starbucks said it will increase the closure of underperforming stores in its most densely penetrated markets to approximately 150 in FY19 from a historical average of up to 50 annually. In addition, the company is expanding its digital relationships with current and new customers and expects newer digital initiatives to contribute one to two points of comp growth in the U.S. in FY19. The company also noted it is making progress toward closure of the Global Coffee Alliance transaction with Nestle (NSRGY) to accelerate and grow the global reach of Starbucks brands in Consumer Packaged Goods and Foodservice. CAPITAL RETURNS: As a result of its new strategic priorities, Starbucks now expects to return roughly $25B in cash to shareholders in the form of share buybacks and dividends through fiscal 2020, an increase of $10B from the cash return target announced in November 2017. As part of the accelerated return, Starbucks' board approved a 20% increase the company's regular quarterly and declared a cash dividend of 36c per share. GUIDANCE SHIFT: As part of the strategic update, Starbucks cut its Q3 global comparable store sales view to 1% from its previous view of 3%. Following the press release, the company said at the Oppenheimer Consumer Growth and E-Commerce Conference that it was reducing its FY18 adjusted EPS guidance to $2.39-$2.43 from its previous view of $2.48-$2.53. Analysts expect the company to report FY18 EPS of $2.49. PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, Starbucks shares were lower by 1.6%.

Schultz leaving a loss, but Morgan Stanley says change can benefit Starbucks too
Morgan Stanley John Glass said Howard Schultz stepping down from his role of executive chairman must be considered a loss for Starbucks, but he added that change can have some potential benefits as well. Glass contends Starbucks is at an important crossroads in its strategy and he believes this event perhaps could further accelerate this process as the new leadership team put the company on a path toward the future with their own ideas. Glass maintains his Overweight rating and $72 price target on Starbucks shares.

Starbucks has no 'meaningful initiatives to improve sales', says Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh kept his Equal Weight rating and $58 price target on Starbucks after its Q3 update, saying the 1% comps growth forecast implies a slowdown from the 3% start that was mentioned in the company's Q2 conference call. The analyst notes that he remains concerned about the lack of "meaningful initiatives to improve sales trajectory" at Starbucks, which would support its valuation expansion.

Nestle acquisition of Hain makes sense, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst John Baumgartner believes a Nestle (NSRGY) acquisition of Hain Celestial (HAIN) would make sense. Bloomberg last night reported that Nestle is among the companies exploring a purchase of Hain. Nestle would likely be a good fit for Hain's baby food, skin care and tea businesses, Baumgartner told investors earlier in a research note. The analyst sees "tax leakage" as a headwind for any deal and keeps a Market Perform rating on Hain with a $38 price target.
