Several sales-building efforts, unit expansion and increased focus on refranchising are favoring Dunkin' Brands' (DNKN) revenue and earnings growth.
While the brand boasts that "America runs on Dunkin'," the company has stayed away from the Pacific Northwest. That might be about to change.
Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. announced that new espresso drinks will be added to the menu, made with new espresso equipment on Wednesday. The new items are an iced cappuccino and the iced Americano. They will be available nationwide starting Nov. 19. For the launch Dunkin', which dropped the "Donuts" from its name in September, will offer free samples for six weeks. On Friday, four-ounce tastings of the caramel flavored iced latte will be available, followed by the white chocolate flavored iced latte on Saturday. Other upcoming deals and promotions include medium lattes and cappuccinos for $2 all day from Nov. 19 to Nov. 25, and free Lyft rides for up to 25,000 customers on Black Friday to get them to their local Dunkin' location. Dunkin' shares have gained 12.2% in 2018 while the S&P 500 index is up 1.8% for the period.
With new state-of-the-art espresso equipment for optimal espresso bean extraction, a new recipe for a stronger and more robust flavor profile, and even a bold and bright new cup design, the brand that already keeps America running with great coffee is now determined to become the destination for the best lattes, cappuccinos, Americanos, macchiatos and more. To unveil its new espresso, Dunkin' will challenge espresso drinkers that sipping is believing with six straight weeks of special espresso samplings, offers and promotions.

While Dunkin' has no plans to stray from its roots in drip coffee, its newly revamped espresso offers it a gateway to reach younger consumers. 2017 was the first year in history in which consumers under 35 years old drank more espresso beverages than hot drip coffee, which ultimately pushed Dunkin' in to reevaluating its espresso. Dunkin' Brands DNKN is confident that its new espresso will lure coffee drinkers away from rival Starbucks SBUX .

Of the 33 analysts that follow Starbucks (SBUX), 45.5% are favoring a “buy” as of November 2, while 54.5% were favoring a “hold” rating. Analysts have an average price target of $63.52, which represents a fall of 1.2% from its stock price of $64.32.

Starbucks (SBUX) posted EPS of $0.56 in the fourth quarter. Year-over-year, Starbucks’s EPS rose 12.7%. The EPS growth was driven by revenue growth, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases, partially offset by a decline in adjusted EBIT margins.
For fiscal 2019, analysts are expecting Starbucks (SBUX) to post revenue of $26.15 billion, which represents a rise of 5.8% from $24.72 billion in 2017. The revenue growth is expected to be driven by the addition of new restaurants and positive SSSG (same-store sales growth). For fiscal 2019, Starbucks’s management expects its consolidated revenue to rise by 5% to 7%, which includes a 2.0% decline from streamline-related activities.
Why exactly would chains skip out on National Donut Day 2018? Well, that’s because there are actually two National Donut Days each year. Most donut sellers chose to take part in the first National Donut Day during the year, rather than this one.
Starbucks (SBUX) outperformed analysts’ Q4 SSSG (same-store sales growth) expectation of 2.3% with actual SSSG of 3.0%. The company’s SSSG was driven by an increase of 4.0% in average ticket size offset by a 1.0% decline in transactions.
The strong SSSG (same-store sales growth) in all three segments helped the company exceed analysts’ revenue expectations. Year-over-year, the company posted revenue growth of 10.6% driven by the favorable impact from the ownership change in East China, the net addition of 1,997 restaurants in the last four quarters, and the positive global SSSG of 3.0%.

Starbucks’ revenue was up everywhere else too, as were same-store sales.

Starbucks has been fighting its competitors – Dunkin' Donuts and McDonald's – for the top position as coffee king for several years. The company, which began close to 50 years ago with a single location, has experienced phenomenal growth and success. In Q4 2018 alone, the company opened 604 new locations, bringing the coffee behemoth's global store count to over 29,000. With a Starbucks on every corner, the company is often considered the go-to coffee place to work and socialize, a concept that corresponds to the company's marketing approach.
