Starbucks Earnings

tomorrows_playbook_3.jpg

Starbucks (SBUX), which is down 32% this year, reports earnings Thursday after the bell. That leaves you one day to make your move. What is it?

Jeff Macke said the way to play this is to buy McDonald’s (MCD)!

He expects to hear about slowing growth and tough comps from the java giant on Thursday. “It’s a problem when you go in a coffee store and they try and sell you music,” he added.

All the traders agree and they are bearish on Starbucks ahead of earnings.
