Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:

Starbucks Corp. and other Restaurant Companies are tracking well. Although (SBUX) is currently in a strong Rally it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics.

My Forecast is quite bright. That is if my Forecast for a General Market - Bearish Cycle / Bearish Inflection Point is delayed.! (I will be more specific upon request).

If you own or are considering owning Restaurant Companies, the securities have definitely been positive. Starbucks Corp. is currently strong Technically but I have mini - reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, however it on an Strong Bullish Forecast - "Alert."

My Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.

Fundamentally: My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (SBUX) are and remain positive. Plainly stated they are Flat but very positive.

Technically: Even with this outstanding Company, my Indicators are breaking down. The next rally, is coming soon and that will tell a compelling story as to the future direction of the price of (SBUX).
