What should investors expect when Starbucks announces its Q2 results on Thursday afternoon? We take a closer look at the coffee giant's earnings estimates and history to get you ready for its Q2 report.
While Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) saw mixed fortunes in 2017 and data shows that almost half met less than favorable outcomes and failed despite jointly raising north of $6 billion, many large and established enterprises are now entering the blockchain and distributed ledger technology landscape.
The company's efforts to ratchet up same-store sales and accelerate growth in China are the two biggest things to watch -- but don't discount the importance of its aggressive approach to fight racial bias in its stores.
In response, Starbucks announced last week that it will close all 8,000 of its company-owned stores nationwide for an entire afternoon on Tuesday, May 29, to give all of its employees training in racial-bias reduction. After all, the company is sacrificing profits by paying employees for an afternoon of work while taking in no revenue and potentially losing goodwill from customers who show up for coffee and find the stores closed. Starbucks sent another encouraging signal by saying that it intended to evaluate the effects of the training.
For a company like Starbucks that is so widely known and patronized by loyal customers, if loyalty is measured in regular repeat business, its reputation is only average. People like the company well enough, but they don’t seem to love it. The Reputation Institute, the Cambridge, MA-based research company that scientifically measures the reputations of 7,000 companies globally, reports Starbucks’ US RepTrak score in 2018 was 66.6, well below the 72.5 points required to rank on this year’s list of the top 100 most reputable companies in America.
As of April 20, McDonald’s (MCD) was trading at $158.77. On the same day, analysts expected the company’s stock price to reach $185.54 in the next 12 months, which represents a return potential of 16.9%.

An ex-Starbucks shift supervisor in Los Angeles County claims the coffee-house retailer owes him back wages for off-the-clock work that was mandated by the company.
Analysts expect McDonald’s (MCD) to post adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $1.67, which represents growth of 13.7% from $1.47 in 1Q17. The EPS growth is expected to be driven by an expansion of the EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases. Analysts are expecting McDonald’s EBIT margin at 41.0%, compared to 35.8% in 1Q17.
