“They beat, but the beat wasn’t as big as needed to keep the mojo going," says Fast Money trader Guy Adami. "They’re a victim of their own success. They needed to crush and they didn’t do it. But growth is still accelerating. On the pullback, I think the Starbucks is a buy.”
The concerning metric involved sales from Europe – they fell 1 percent. Analysts polled by Consensus Metrix were expecting same-stores sales to rise 2.2 percent in Europe.
Also, Starbucks Chief Financial Officer Troy Alstead said the economy in Europe is "challenging".
