State of play:

• Didi forced Uber out of China in 2016. Uber then retreated from Southeast Asia this year, refocusing on the U.S., Europe and Latin America.

• Didi pursued Uber across the Pacific, buying Brazilian ride-share startup 99 in January and launching in Mexico, one of Uber’s largest markets.

• Didi plans to launch in other cities in Mexico, where Uber has an 87% share of the country’s ride-hailing market, per my colleague Sherisse Pham.

What’s More: Didi is in talks for a multibillion-dollar IPO as early as this year that could value the company at $70 to $80 billion, per WSJ’s Julie Steinberg.

    It’s too early to call it a comeback, but Starbucks’ (NASDAQ:SBUX) business is clearly on the mend. The coffee titan just opened its new fiscal year by continuing — and in some cases improving on — the encouraging trends that drove its strong close to fiscal 2018.

    For a long time, Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) has billed itself as a “third place” for customers — a place aside from the home and workplace where they can feel welcome. However, that notion came under assault just weeks ago when two black men were arrested for “trespassing” in a Philadelphia Starbucks as they refused to order anything, though they were waiting for a friend in the cafe. The two men were detained for nine hours, and the news sparked outrage and calls for boycotts against the coffee chain.

    Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) has a lot going for it as an investment. The coffee chain controls one of the world’s most valuable consumer brands, for one. Some customers make several visits to its cafes each day, and they usually don’t mind paying up for premium beverage products.
