Starbucks Corp (NASDAQ:SBUX) Earnings Model
Author: Anonymous Contributor 1001, Published: October 24, 2021 Category: Earnings Preview (Prior to the F4Q2021 SBUX Results)
Notes From the Model Developer: The market is expected to grow well over $400 billion in size globally over the next 3 years. Starbucks global revenue reached $7.5 billion in Q3, up 78% from the prior year, driven largely by the performance in the US, their largest market. I believe that the continued adoption of mobile ordering will be a big driver of revenue in the future:
- Rewards program drives average ticket price as mobile order transactions are trending upward to 25% in Q3 of 2021 from just 16% in Q3 of 2019.
- Increase in comp sales for the Americas
- Increase in operating margin (decreasing operating expenses as a percentage of revenue)
Multiple-Based Valuation: I have applied an average Price-Earnings multiple of 28x for fiscal year 2023 earnings. That resulted in a price target of $125 per share which implies a 2023 non-GAAP EV/EBITDA multiple of 17.7x.
ERP Model Assumptions: Now that inflation is running ahead of the Fed's long-term target, and the test has been met, I believe the Fed will be force to begin a semi-aggressive taper of security purchases and increase the Federal Funds rate. The rise in inflation will be persistent and not transitory. I believe the taper will not be immediate, beginning at the end of 2022, even if unemployment rates do not reach the intended goal.
