Starbucks executing $5B accelerated share repurchase program

As part of Starbucks' previously announced plan to return $25 billion to shareholders in the form of share buybacks and dividends through fiscal 2020, the company is currently executing a $5 billion accelerated share repurchase program, or ASR, of the company's common stock with the assistance of two financial institutions. The company used proceeds from the recently completed transaction with Nestle S.A. to execute the ASR, effective October 1, 2018. Initial delivery of shares represented approximately 80% of the total shares that will be repurchased under the ASR, which is expected to be completed as early as February 2019 and no later than March 2019.

Tigress reiterates Neutral on Coca-Cola after 'bold' Costa acquisition
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth reiterates a Neutral rating on Coca-Cola (KO) shares following the company's acquisition of Costa. The deak positions Coca-Cola "in the center of the very competitive coffee-based beverage business" where it will compete head-on with Starbucks (SBUX) and Nestle (NSRGY), Feinseth tells investors in a research note. The Costa acquisition is a "bold move" by Coca-Cola as it continues trying to expand outside of its core beverage business and increase its retail presence, the analyst adds. He believes, however, that "intense" competition in the beverage industry, coupled with ongoing changes in consumer tastes, creates "significant Business Performance headwinds" for Coke.

Wedbush checks point to Q4 U.S. SSS growth in 2%-3% range at Starbucks
Wedbush analyst Nick Setyan told investors in a research note that recent checks are pointing to Starbucks' U.S. SSS growth tracking in the mid-2% range for Q4, slightly below the 2.8% consensus. While the analyst says a 3% comp in Americas "is possible," a rounded-down 2% comp "may be just as likely" particularly due to the adverse weather in the mid-Atlantic. He views new digital initiatives, including the ability to take advantage of mobile pay without being a loyalty member, as an incremental 1%-2% SSS growth driver in FY19. While he no longer sees growing risks to lowered expectations through FY19, Setyan also does not expect drivers of positive revisions to materialize, and maintains a Neutral rating and $53 price target.
