Despite Chinese Growth, Bernstein Downgrades Starbucks On Slower American Business

Despite Chinese Growth, Bernstein Downgrades Starbucks On Slower American Business

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) reported fiscal first-quarter earnings last week, disappointing some Wall Street analysts due to poor performance in the North American unit, but fueling optimism in others over the company’s prospects in China.  

The Analyst

Bernstein’s Sara Senatore downgraded Starbucks’ stock rating from Outperform to Market-Perform with a price target lowered from $67 to $64.

The Thesis

The case for being aggressive on Starbucks’ stock at a time of disappointing metrics in the U.S. is based on the company’s prospects for China, where a new store is being opened every 15 hours, Senatore said in a Monday note. (See the analyst’s track record here.) 

But the business mix shift isn’t happening at a fast enough pace to offset the domestic problems, the analyst said. 

Starbucks’ prospects in China are comparable with Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM)’s aggressive growth in China, which picked up momentum in 2004 and prompted the company to spin its China-business into a new stock, Yum China Holdings Inc (NYSE: YUMC), Senatore said. The difference: unlike Yum’s business back in 2004, Starbucks’ business remains “meaningfully more weighted” to the U.S., she said. 

The Chinese contribution to Starbucks’ segment EBIT in fiscal 2017 was 8 percent and it’s expected to grow to 13 percent in fiscal 2020, according to Bernstein. In contrast, Yum’s China contribution to segment EBIT back in 2004 was 16 percent. 

Starbucks’ business mix continues to shift to China which does represent a “powerful long-term story,” the analyst said. The issue is that it is happening at a pace that is “not fast enough” to offset softness in the North American business. 

Price Action

Shares of Starbucks were trading lower by nearly 1 percent ahead of Monday’s market open.

The Current US Economic Divide Is “The Founding Fathers’ Worst Nightmare Come True”

 

The Current US Economic Divide Is "The Founding Fathers' Worst Nightmare Come True"

Courtesy of Zero Hedge

Authored by Chris Hamilton via Econimica blog,

I have made the case that as goes housing starts (blue columns below), so goes jobs creation and more broadly the US economy.  And as goes interest rates (black line below) and deficit spending (on an annual % change basis of total debt (essentially as a % of GDP), red line below), so goes new housing. 

Simply, when deficit spending accelerates and interest rates are declining, America builds new housing and the broader economy hums.  However, debt grows far faster than the resultant economic activity, and debt to GDP soars (yellow line).  Conversely, when deficit spending is decelerating and rates are rising (as they are now), new housing creation decelerates/declines and economic recession is imminent.

*When showing the change in deficit spending, I'm showing the year over change in actual federal debt (as per the Treasury), not the White House deficit numbers which do not reflect actual increases to federal debt.

But many people rightly state that federal deficit spending is currently at a half trillion and likely to surge back above a trillion dollars in the near future.  So what am I talking about decelerating deficits???

To help clarify my point when I say deficits are decelerating, the chart below shows total debt (red shaded area), annual federal debt spending in dollars (black line, on a quarterly basis) and annual federal debt spending in % terms (yellow line, also on a quarterly basis).

So the current change in federal debt, on an annual basis, is currently a half trillion dollars and likely set to grow to a trillion plus relatively soon based on demographic changes (slowing SS receipts, larger outlays, Medicare/Medicaid spending, etc.) plus tax cuts reducing tax revenue.  However, it is the correlation of federal debt growth in % terms (yellow line in above chart, representing rate of growth) which seems to have greater impact.

As the total debt grows (total debt now essentially equals GDP), the denominator is larger and the resultant debt spending must be that much…

Turkey Demands US Forces Leave Syria’s Manbij Immediately

 

Turkey Demands US Forces Leave Syria's Manbij Immediately

Submitted by Brecht Jonkers and Andrew Illingworth via Al-Masdar News,

As Turkish and allied militant forces from the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) advance further upon Kurdish positions in northern Syria, Turkey has called upon the United States to vacate its military bases in the Syrian district of Manbij. Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Turkish foreign minister Melet Cavusoglu said that Ankara is calling upon the US, its official ally in NATO, to cease any and all support to Syrian Kurdish forces and militias.

Cavusoglu’s statement came mere hours after an official telephone talk between Turkey’s Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin and US National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond McMaster about the ongoing Turkish invasion of Syrian soil.

Though unconfirmed by officials in Washington, the US-funded Voice of America reports that McMaster "pledged to stop giving arms to YPG Kurdish forces in Syria" during the phone call. However, it is unclear what this would mean on the ground as the Pentagon has in the past attempted to make a linguistic distinction between the YPG per se (Kurdish "People's Protection Units") and the Syrian Democratic Forces (the former comprises the bulk of the latter), as well as a distinction between YPG operating in Afrin Canton and the rest of Kurdish forces in Rojava.

Voice of America reports the following of the high level phone call between McMaster and Erdogan's presidential spokesman:

Turkey said Saturday that Washington has pledged to stop giving arms to YPG Kurdish forces in Syria, as Turkey's offensive against the U.S.-backed group there enters its eight day. Turkey's presidency said in a statement that U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster spoke Friday with Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. McMaster confirmed in the phone conversation that the U.S. would not give weapons to the YPG militia, the statement said. There has been no U.S. confirmation.

While both Turkey and the United States are in violation of international law by entering Syria with military forces without permission by Damascus or a UN mandate, both countries have vastly different interests in the country.

The United States has for years supplied weapons and training…

What Will Cause The Next Recession?

 

What Will Cause The Next Recession?

Courtesy of Zero Hedge

Authored by Daniel Lacalle via The Mises Institute,

The most recent consensus estimates for global Gross Domestic Product growth show a healthy “synchronised” development in most economies.

Expectations for the major economies are much stronger than what economists expected at the end of 2016 for the next three years. Seems all concerns about a global slowdown and subsequent recession have disappeared. What has changed?

China

The first major driver of this newfound optimism is China. The Chinese economy has not slowed down as aggressively as predicted nor has the Yuan devalued as much as feared. The counterpart is that deleveraging and structural reforms have vanished from the China debate. Chinese total debt has surpassed 300%. In the first ten months of the year, money supply has increased by 9.2%, significantly above estimates. From January to October 2017, China has added more debt than the UK, EU, US and Japan together, and that should be a cause of concern in the next months.

Bond yields are already rising in China and the stubborn decision of the government to “print” an official growth above 6% is also creating significant imbalances in the economy that will be more difficult to solve if ignored.

Political Catalysts

The second factor behind the current wave of optimism can be found in the excessive risk attached to political catalysts in the past two years. As economists, many of us were concerned about the different events in the political calendar, from Brexit to the Trump presidency, to the French and German elections. None of these events have generated a dramatic negative effect on the major economies.

The feared “rise of protectionism” did not happen, and trade growth rose above expectations, and economic recovery accelerated throughout the year. In effect, many were wrong attaching too much risk to political events, but this has led to an opposite effect. By the end of 2017 what we can read out of consensus estimates is that political risk has been all but ignored.

Inflation Expectations

The third relevant factor has been the gradual increase in inflation expectations. For many, it does not

    Hola people! 

    Futures opening just as crazy high as they closed – ain't no stopping us now.  

    Trade of the Year/Maya – That's a good question because I wanted it to be LB but then LB took off too fast before Thanksgiving and, officially, I switched to HBI.  Both have pulled back a bit and I do like LB better and it was simply a positioning issue.  So the trade we have in the Money Talk Portfolio, when I was on in Sept, was our original LB trade and, since we reset the other portfolio in Dec (before the drop in Retail), we didn't have a chance to get back into either at low prices yet (though we are still hopeful earning will disappoint or the market simply corrects).  

    NAK/Maya – Ouch, that totally sucks! 

    Good quote Naybob.

    Speaking of the Money Talk Portfolio, I'm on the show Wednesday and I've got to write up a review:

    From a $50,000 start we're up 74% to $86,975 in our first year.  These are very much "set and forget" trades as we have never even made an adjustment and they represent trade ideas that were made on just two shows – one in January and one in September.  

    As with many of our Philstockworld trades, we use very little cash for our initial positions, saving that firepower for adjustments if a trade goes south but, when they don't – they can be money-gushers.  These trades, of course, follow our strategy of "Be the House – NOT the Gambler" in which we sell more premium than we buy, giving ourselves a tremendous edge every time we make a trade.  

    AAPL – This is a $30,000 spread that cost us $6,100 in cash to initiate and the margin required on the short puts is $8,541 but worth it as we had very little fear Apple would fail $140 so the risk was deemed low.  Currently, the spread is net $13,550, which is up $7,450 (122%) but we still have another $16,450

Illinois Unveils Another Shocker: Sell A Record $107 Billion In Debt To Fund Insolvent Pensions

 

Illinois Unveils Another Shocker: Sell A Record $107 Billion In Debt To Fund Insolvent Pensions

If there is such a thing as financial hell, it is probably Greece… with Illinois coming in close second.

For those unfamiliar, here's a quick recap: Illinois (rate just one notch above junk) is drowning under a mountain of debt, unpaid bills and underfunded pension liabilities and it's largest city, Chicago, is suffering from a staggering outbreak of violent crime not seen since gang wars engulfed major cities from LA to New York in the mid-90's, while rising taxes have prompted a mass exodus with the state lost 1 resident every 4.3 minutes in 2017. 

Here is just a small taste of some of our recent posts on Illinois' challenges:

Seen in this light, any irrational actions undertaken by the near-insolvent state would almost make sense, if not be expected. Actually make that irrational and utterly bizarre, such as a proposed offering of a mind-blowing $107 billion in debt - a never before attempted amount in the world of munis - to "fund" the state's insolvent pension system, which would also assure that Illinois would default (even faster) in the very near future.

According to Bloomberg, Illinois lawmakers are so desperate to shore up the state’s massively underfunded retirement system that "they’re willing to entertain an eye-popping wager: Borrowing $107 billion and letting it ride in the financial markets."

If that number sounds oddly large, is because it is: an offering of this size would be by far the biggest debt sale in the history of the municipal market, and amount to roughly 50% more debt than bankrupt Puerto Rico accumulated in the run up to its record-setting insolvency.

Putting the proposed deal in context, Illinois had…

S&P Rally Continues to Fire as Dow Breaks Out Again

Courtesy of Declan.

Another firm round of gains across all markets kept things buoyant. The Dow managed a fresh breakout from channel resistance on higher volume accumulation.  This has the look of yet another channel acceleration as the chance for a parabolic blowout increases.







The Nasdaq finished at new highs but hasn’t yet made it into the 10% zone of historic extreme Nasdaq action going back to 1971.





Action in the Russell 2000 has made managing a short position at bearish wedge resistance difficult as whipsaw remains the risk. However, the relative performance of the index continues to deteriorate which means if selling picks up then the Russell 2000 is likely to be the index to lead markets downwards.





The Semiconductor Index experienced a heavier sell off last week but on Friday managed to make back most of this lost ground. The break of 1,342 is holding but if this can’t breach 1,393 soon then look for weakness to spread to high flying Nasdaq and Nasdaq 100.





For Monday, watch the Semiconductor Index for leads. While the Russell 2000 is typically viewed as the leading market sentiment indicator (given its more speculative nature) the Semiconductor Index is experiencing an increased divergence to the Nasdaq/Nasdaq 100 – as shown by its weak relative performance to the latter index. If Semiconductors struggle then the Nasdaq and Nasdaq 100 will be vulnerable to profit taking, leaving Large Caps as the last of the high flyers.

Weekly Market Recap Jan 20, 2019

After entering the week quite overbought, indexes took a small retreat Monday before hurling back upwards.  This is typical of the “V” shaped moves up after any significant selloff, we’ve seen most of the past decade and watching them unfurl is quite amazing actually.  Thought maybe this time would be “different” but not so much.  So two week’s ago we asked “Has the Fed solved all the market’s problem in 1 speech?” – and thus far the market has answered resoundingly yes.  The word of the year thus far in 2019 is “patience” as that simple insert into a speech change the whole complexion of everything.

Everyone Else Is Selling Stocks, So Is It Time To Buy?

By Michelle Jones. Originally published at ValueWalk.

After a difficult few trading days in the beginning of the year, U.S. stocks are bouncing back with meaningful gains on Monday following Friday’s strong rally. The S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq 100 were all up by more than half a percent by midday. It looks like investors could be taking advantage of the end-of-the-year declines, but is this a wise time to be buying?

Trying to time the bottom of the market will almost always be a fool’s errand, but one firm suggests equities could have much farther to fall before they hit bottom in 2019.
