Dave Sather of Sather Financial Group presented his in-depth investment thesis on Starbucks (NYSE: SBUX) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2018.

Thesis summary:

Starbucks is the premier roaster of specialty coffee with a brand name valued at $17 billion by Forbes, trading at fair value. For a variety of reasons, such as negative press attention, lower comparable store sales growth, and desertion by growth investors, Starbucks trades at the lowest point in three years. Management has raised its target for cash returned to shareholders to $25 billion through FY20, including a 20% dividend increase.

Trading at a market multiple, most investors are overly concerned with slowing U.S. growth. In reality, it is an international growth opportunity harnessing digital relationships via data analytics. SBUX is fairly priced based on conservative estimates. If anything goes right, the upside should accrue to the patient investor.
