From a technical standpoint, SBUX flirted with a major breakout earlier in the trading session after the stock traded above some near-term overhead resistance at $45. Since hitting $45.45, SBUX has pulled back under the breakout level at around $44.70. If SBUX fails to sustain a move and close back above $45 on high-volume, then this stock could be setting up to trade lower. Volume so far today is extremely light, so that intraday breakout looks to be setting up to fail. That would only change if SBUX can start to see better volume and a sustained move back above $45.
