Starbucks price target raised to $81 from $72 at Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer analyst Brian Bittner raised his price target for Starbucks to $81 from $72 on valuation as he remains confident in drivers behind healthy same-store sales. Nonetheless, the analyst recognizes that multiple expansion is difficult to justify in near-term. Bittner reiterates an Outperform rating on the stock, particularly ahead of an accelerating earnings scenario he envisions in 2020.

Chipotle price target raised to $700 after restaurant sentiment survey at Stifel
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull said his recent survey of investors indicated that 33% think restaurant fundamentals deteriorated during Q1 relative to their initial expectations at the beginning of the quarter. McDonald's (MCD) was the only large-cap restaurant stock voted to outperform heading into earnings season while Chipotle (CMG) and Domino's (DPZ) were investors' top small-to-mid-cap picks for earnings outperformance, noted O'Cull. Among large-cap stocks, the largest number of investors surveyed pointed to Starbucks (SBUX) as most likely to underperform in the near-term, the analyst added. O'Cull raised his 2019 and 2020 EPS estimates for Chipotle based on his view that Q4 momentum has likely built in early 2019 and increased his price target on the shares to $700 from $500, but he maintains a Hold rating on Chipotle shares.

Starbucks downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Dennis Geiger downgraded Starbucks to Neutral from Buy while raising his price target for the shares to $78 from $72. The stock closed Friday up 68c to $75.03. The risk/reward on shares "appears balanced" with the stock up 55% since June, Geiger tells investors in a research note. He believes Starbucks is better positioned going forward with improved same-store-sales momentum and streamlined operations. However, the shares "reflect this and expectations are now elevated," says Geiger. The analyst adds that while repurchase activity and upside to forecasts "could support further multiple expansion," he sees risks from "downside to more elevated sales/earnings expectations as an offset.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Stephen Tusa saying with the stock up 38% year-to-date, many investors are underestimating the severity of the challenges and underlying risks at GE, while overestimating the value of "small positives." 2. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Dennis Geiger saying the risk/reward on shares "appears balanced" with the stock up 55% since June. 3. Boeing (BA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ronald Epstein citing the company's announcement that it will cut 737 production rates to 42 per month from 52 per month, which he takes to likely mean that the 737 delay could last longer than previously expected. 4. Micron (MU) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Karl Ackerman saying his field work indicates Micron's profitability will decline again in calendar year 2020. 5. Roku (ROKU) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Mark May saying the stock is up 110% year-to-date and near all-time highs. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Starbucks price target raised to $70 from $60 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Nicole Miller Regan raised her price target for Starbucks to $70 from $60 and keeps a Neutral rating on the name following March channel checks. In March, our Starbucks checks were steady in the positive mid-single-digit range, Regan tells investors in a research note. She notes, however, that her Starbucks checks, on average, have been approximately 120 basis points below actual results over the last four quarters. As such, the analyst is maintaining her positive 3% fiscal Q2 same-store sales estimate for the Americas segment. Regan remains Neutral rated on Starbucks with an "incrementally positive bias." It appears the potential overhang related to sales momentum and/or operational execution in the Americas segment has been partially removed, says the analyst.
