Nowadays, it's hard to go down the street with out facing the beckoning call of the Starbucks (SBUX) siren. 

The coffee giant will report third-quarter fiscal 2019 results on Jul 25, after the closing bell.

In Starbucks' last earnings report, the company reported an earnings beat with 75 cents per share with a record $4.6 billion in North American sales. Global revenues rose 9.2% to $6.63 billion.
