‘Star Struck’ With Starbucks

In a recent report, analysts at BMO Capital Markets initiated coverage on Starbucks with an Outperform rating and a $56 price target. BMO, at the time, said the stock is an attractive long-term investment.

The company's "five-year plan margin assumptions may prove conservative," analyst Andrew Strelzik said.

Cowen also weighed in on Starbucks recently.

"[The] key to reaccelerating comps is growth in the SBUX Card and mobile payment, which fuels the company's digital initiatives. Mobile ordering will help expedite traffic growth while increasing the food attachment to boost ticket," the firm's analysts wrote.
