The stock of Starbucks (NAS:SBUX, 30-year Financials) is believed to be significantly overvalued, according to GuruFocus Value calculation.

Starbucks (SBUX)

We exited our initial investment in Starbucks in January 2020, and opportunistically repurchased a stake in the company at a highly attractive valuation during the March market downturn. Management has handled the COVID-19 crisis incredibly well, which we believe will enable the company to emerge even stronger following the pandemic. At the company's current valuation, about twice the price we paid one year ago, our expected returns from owning Starbucks are below our long-term targets. As a result, we recently sold our stake. Below we summarize our thoughts on the company. Despite the sale, we expect that Starbucks

The hedge fund manager doubled down on his favorites stocks to improve returns

In 2014, Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio) made one of the biggest mistakes of his career. He started buying shares in the healthcare company Valeant (now named Bausch Health Companies Inc. (BHC)).

The investor and manager was incredibly enthusiastic about the group's business model and CEO, Michael Pearson. Pearson, it seemed, had managed to pioneer the perfect business model. Valeant would acquire pharmaceutical businesses with vast amounts of debt and then slash costs and research and development spending to maximize cash flow after the deal.

Initially, the strategy worked, but then the company came under

The company is an excellent long-term buy, given its growth initiatives and relative valuation

Yum China Holdings Inc. (YUMC) is a good franchise selling at a discount on Wall Street, according to Quo Vadis Capital President John Zolidis.

Last week, the operator of KFC, Pizza Hut and other fast-food brands in China reported fourth-quarter earnings of 35 cents per share that beat analysts' expectations of 24 cents per share.

But it warned of "significant headwinds" in the first quarter of 2021 due to a Covid-19 resurgence in some areas of China.

Wall Street took this warning seriously, sending the company's shares on a roller coaster following the report.

Still, Zolidis thinks Yum China is

The company's business model and strategy create a great deal of value for consumers, but they don't capture value for stockholders

Shares of Chinese coffee chain Luckin Coffee Inc. (LKNCY) could become worthless, according to Quo Vadis President John Zolidis, who has been following the company closely.

"We believe there is a very significant probability that the equity will have no value after a restructuring, based on the company's current secured creditors and unquantifiable legal obligations," Zolidis said.

Luckin's shares were trading near $7 on Friday (down 45%) after filing for bankruptcy protection. At $7, the market cap willstill be close to $2 billion.

Zolidis says that "the value of the business is still extremely suspect given that last year's Ebitda

A look at the company's first quarter financial results

Coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) reported results for its first quarter of fiscal 2021 last week.

Revenues for the quarter declined 5% to $6.7 billion, which reflects the continued impact of the pandemic on the company's global operations. Global comparable store sales (comps) fell 5% in the quarter, with a 19% decline in traffic offset by a high-teens increase in average ticket. As shown below, while the mid-single digit decline in comps still leaves room for improvement, it's meaningfully better than results from the past few quarters.

Despite beating Wall Street's earnings forecasts, the coffeehouse chain is still on the road to recovery

After the markets closed on Jan. 26, Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) reported earnings results for its first quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended on Dec. 27, 2020.

Although the coffeehouse chain beat Wall Street's forecasts on the earnings front, it missed on the revenue front, and business levels remained depressed compared to a year ago. Shares were down approximately 1.6% in after-hours trading following the news.

Earnings results

For the quarter, Starbucks posted GAAP earnings per share of 53 cents (down 28% year over year) and adjusted earnings of 61 cents per share (down 22%) compared to the 55 cents that

Starbucks' (SBUX) sales trends improved substantially relative to the second calendar quarter, led by markets that were further along the post-COVID-19 reopening path, particularly mainland China. While the Company has experienced a challenging year due to the effects of the pandemic, Starbucks has quickly adapted and made investments that should move it into a better competitive position as society returns to normal. For example, it has ramped up opening more stores with drive-through and pick-up capabilities, in addition to continued digital and loyalty program expansions. We also think the Company has the opportunity to drive higher margins over the

Activist investor adds to position in real estate company

Billionaire investor Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio) disclosed late last week he boosted Pershing Square Capital Management's stake in The Howard Hughes Corp. (HHC) by 23.37%.

The guru's New York-based hedge fund is known for taking large positions in a handful of underperforming companies and pushing for change in order to unlock value for shareholders. While he has found success recently with Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG) and Starbucks Corp. (SBUX), one of Ackman's most well-known activist targets, which did not end well for him, was Valeant Pharmaceuticals. He also pursued an unsuccessful short of Herbalife Nutrition Ltd.

The coffee company has strong revenue and earnings growth, but its shares are significantly overvalued

Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) is ready to return to the good old days of strong revenue and earnings growth.

That's according to a rosy forecast provided by the company's management in an analyst day last week. For 2021, Starbucks reiterated its GAAP earnings per share range of $2.34 to $2.54 and non-GAAP earnings range of $2.70 to $2.90 (both inclusive of a 10-cent impact attributable to the 53rd week).

Wall Street seems to share management's enthusiasm. The company's shares have gained 21% in the last three months, compared to the S&P 500's 10% increase.
