    • Shares of Dunkin' Brands (DNKN -10.2%) are sharply lower after the company issues guidance at its Investor Day event.
    • The restaurant operators expects EPS of $1.87 to $1.91 this year to fall short of the $1.92 consensus mark of analysts.
    • An early read on traffic and comparable-store sales for Q3 also came in lighter than expected.
    • Another factor for Dunkin' Brands is the hurricane in the Atlantic which could potentially threaten the Northeast where the company has a high concentration of stores. Dunkin' saw a noticeable quarterly sales drop after Hurricane Sandy.

    • Shares of J.M. Smucker (SJM +1%) and Dunkin Brands' (DNKN +2.9%) are both higher after the two companies sign a deal to broaden distribution for Dunkin' Donuts K-cups.
    • J.M. Smucker is handling distribution to grocery stores and club chains, while Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR -0.1%) will cover office supply stores and specialty stores.
    • Perhaps the most important aspect of the new distribution deal is that Dunkin' K-Cup packs will now be sold online.
    • The K-cup shakeup isn't expected by most analysts to have a major impact on Starbucks (SBUX +0.2%) which is also a Keurig partner. Smaller coffee brands could suffer though.
