Shares of Starbucks Corp. fell nearly 2% late Thursday after the company reported mixed results for its fiscal second quarter. Starbucks said it earned $660 million, or 47 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $653 million, or 45 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned 53 cents a share, compared with 45 cents a share a year ago. Sales rose 14% to $6.03 billion, from $5.29 billion a year ago, the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected GAAP and adjusted earnings of 53 cents a share on sales of $5.93 billion. Same-store sales rose 2.2%, the company said. Starbucks reiterated its 2018 outlook but said the guidance excludes the yet-to-be determined impact on its previously announced plan to close more than 8,000 company-owned stores for half a day to conduct racial-bias training for its employees in the U.S. Comparable-store sales are seen up 3% to 5% globally for the year, and revenue growth is seen in the high single digits, Starbucks said. Per-share earnings are seen in a range between $3.32 and $3.36 in 2018, with adjusted EPS in a range between $2.48 and $2.53. The analysts surveyed by FactSet expect an adjusted 2018 EPS around $2.49. “We have a clear set of actions underway to improve profitability through a combination of comp and beverage growth and savings across (cost of goods sold), waste and labor as we move through the back half of the year,” Chief Financial Officer Scott Maw said in a statement. Starbucks shares ended the regular trading up 2.9%.
