Getting Ahead of EDS and Starbucks

graphic_take_position.jpg

Java giant Starbucks (SBUX) and tech titan Electronic Data Systems (EDS)both release quarterly earnings after the bell Thursday. That leaves you only one day to make your move.

Tim Strazzini says IT is very strong right now and EDS is well positioned, however he thinks this quarter will be underwhelming. He recommends investors own EDS for the long term. Tim expects to see about 30% upside over the next 9 months.

Onto Starbucks, Jeff Macke doesn’t want to own this stock. On Thursday he’ll be listening for any indication that the company is growing, organically.

Eric Bollings adds SBUX could have weaker earnings because of higher milk prices.
