Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
Starbucks Corp. and other Restaurant Companies are tracking the Marketplace well. Although (SBUX) is currently in a strong Rally it is also an excellent Company to Forecast for accuracy of future price movements and contributor to my overall 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 - maybe at even higher prices?
Fundamentally: My Analytics (weighting 40%) 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 comparatively very positive.
Technically: Within this outstanding Company, my Indicators are not breaking down like with so many other Companies. It is only currently slightly off its highs of $77 selling for $77. The current rally, has lifted (SBUX) by over 10% and that is impressive but is also in line with my Forecasted projections.
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (SBUX) !
