Starbucks (SBUX) Q2 profit dips 51%, misses estimates

Coffee chain major Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 today. The bottom line missed analysts’ expectations while the top line exceeded consensus estimates.

Starbucks posted a 51% dip in earnings for the second quarter of 2020 as the adverse impact of COVID-19 hurt the top-line by 5%. Global comparable-store sales fell 10% due to a 13% decrease in comparable transactions that were partially offset by a 4% rise in average ticket. The company experienced lost sales arising from the COVID-19 that include the effects of temporary store closures, modified operations, reduced hours, and reduced customer traffic.
