    [$$] Stocks to watch: Berkeley, Sirius, Imperial Brands, BT, Starbucks

    Liberum called the news “a small incremental positive for Sirius” because it means the group has secured binding agreements in place for 4.7m tonnes of fertiliser a year, against a target of 6m-7m tonnes to satisfy lenders as part of stage-two project financing. Global same-store sales were up just 1 per cent for the fiscal third quarter due in part to the timing of promotions in the US, said Starbucks, which responded by promising more innovation and slowing its unit growth as well as boosting shareholder returns. Slowing Chinese sales played “only a very small role in the miss (we estimate only circa 10 per cent of profits) but deceleration was a negative surprise, and believing in the long term opportunity in China is important to the long-term thesis,” said Morgan Stanley, which downgraded Starbucks to “equal weight”.

    2 FTSE 100 Stocks That Could Spike This Week

    Had you splashed the cash on Ferguson a year ago -- back when the plumbing and heating specialist was still known as Wolseley -- you’d be toasting a near-20% share price jump up until today, outpacing the 1% rise that the FTSE 100 posted over the same period. After all Ferguson rebranded itself to adopt the moniker of its core US division in anticipation of rampant growth in the years ahead. Signs of these perky prospects have helped to drive the company’s market value to record high after record high over the past 12 months and, with third-quarter financials set to be released momentarily (Tuesday, June 19 to be exact), I reckon another share price spike could be mere hours away.
