Starbucks Corp. /zigman2/quotes/207508890/composite SBUX +3.21% was upgraded to buy from hold at Deutsche Bank, with analysts anticipating growth in China for a long time to come. Analysts maintained their $127 price target. Deutsche Bank initiated Starbucks coverage last month. Analysts also expect Starbucks to return "a ~low to mid-teens percent of its equity market cap" in dividends and share buybacks over the next three years.
