Premarket Roundup: Goldman Sachs, Starbucks

The Associated Press

Despite a likely end-of-year slowdown in fixed-income trading, Goldman Sachs will top Wall Street expectations by cutting the percentage of sales it sets aside as compensation, an analyst said.

Starbucks Corp.'s cost control efforts and the likelihood of a key sales measure improving prompted an analyst to lift the coffee chain's rating and price target.

A surprisingly strong weekend opening for the second movie in the Twilight vampire series, "New Moon," led analysts to raise their box office forecasts and support a more upbeat outlook for theater chains.

Investors should begin buying shares of Met-Pro Corp. since the shares have fallen back to a level that makes them a good value, an analyst said.

A Jefferies & Co. analyst raised his rating on medical software company Eclipsys Corp., citing a better opinion on the company's prospects after a meeting with management.

Hewlett-Packard Co., the world's No. 1 personal computer and printer maker, was likely buoyed by a recovering PC market in the latest quarter but worries persist about the health of some of its other businesses.
