Prospective purchase of shares of Starbucks Corporation (SBUX) (consumer sector/restaurant business)

Global disadvantages and risks:

The shares of Starbucks were already under pressure from the COVID-19 pandemic factor, internal reasons for financial health, and then the political decision to leave Russia led to the loss of part of the profit and alienated several investors. But the most important, though not critical problems are the presence of negative equity, a high level of debt, and unattractive values of the price/profit ratio (P/E) of 19.58x against the value of 17.1x in the industry and 15.1x in the market, as well as the price-to-profit ratio (PEG), which is 1.4x. The debt ratio of $ 16.024 billion to equity is $ 8.761 billion, but at the same time, the company's debt is well covered by operating cash flow of 33.1% and is offset by EBIT coverage of 11.5 times. The high amount of debt was formed against the background of the repurchase of shares by the company. Due to the capital disparity, it is difficult to estimate the return on equity (ROE) of Starbucks. In general, no events of concern have been detected, nor have insider stock sales been observed over the past 3 months.


The company is currently profitable. Profit is projected to grow by an average of 14.1% per year over the next 3 years. Profit increased by 294.8% compared to last year, which is due to the actual end of the coronavirus pandemic.
