By Davit Kirakosyan
Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX ) shares fell more than 3% after-hours following the company reported Q1 results , with comparable sales missing the Street estimates as weak performance in China offset strong sales in North America.
Q1 EPS came in at $0.75, worse than the consensus estimate of $0.77. Revenue grew 8% year-over-year to $8.7 billion, compared to the consensus estimate of $8.78B.
Global comparable store sales grew 5%, primarily driven by a 7% increase in average ticket, partially offset by a 2% decline in comparable transactions.
