Why Yum! Brands, Inc. Stock Is Worth Every Penny

17h investorplace
Kudos to Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM) for a third-quarter earnings beat that sent YUM stock up 6% on Nov. 2. Shares had been stagnant for months on concerns the fast food restaurant powerhouse was facing a stiff headwind and, though sales fell a bit, earnings as well as revenue were both better than anticipated.

Victory Formation Long/Short Portfolio Update - November 2017

2017-11-20 seekingalpha
I have made some changes this week to my long/short portfolio example listed on Wall Street Survivor. I have basically reduced the long S&P 500 ETF exposure in exchange for some regular individual company longs, covered a few shorts in favor of better scoring ideas, and traded the long Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) position for Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) shares. The net-long posture has been reduced closer to net-neutral as a result of the shuffling, after subtracting the precious metals hedge stake. (628-1)

Don't Let Home-Bias Investing Trip You Up

2017-11-18 seekingalpha
The total U.S. stock market has gained over 20% during the past year and is doing great. But for U.S. investors that are under-weighted to foreign stocks, it's not so great. Why? Because foreign stocks have convincingly outperformed U.S. equities, thereby causing a performance deficit. What's the problem? (338-1)

McDonald's (MCD) Presents at Morgan Stanley Global Consumer & Retail Conference (Transcript)

2017-11-15 seekingalpha
Good morning, everyone. Welcome back to the second day of our Global Consumer Conference. Our lead off this morning is McDonald’s, and I am joined with Kevin Ozan, the Chief Financial Officer at McDonald’s. I kind of thought we’d do this, I thought first we talk a little bit about the long-term plan of McDonald’s in terms of business model transformation, talk a little bit about whether it’s G&A reduction, CapEx and sort of what the steady state business model looks like, and then spend the bulk of our time talking about the Velocity Growth Plan that you’ve initiated earlier this year in terms of driving sales, and obviously we’ve seen some very positive early results from that.

Intel, Merck Sink DJIA on Friday

2017-11-10 247wallst
November 10, 2017: Markets opened lower Friday and never really gained much traction throughout the day. Disagreements among Republicans — to say nothing of opposition from Democrats — to the Trump administration’s tax bill has stalled buying for the moment. Energy and healthcare were the laggards Friday, with consumer staples posting the best gain. WTI crude oil for December delivery settled at $56. (27-0)

Ride the Momentum in YUM! Brands, Inc. Stock, But Be Prepared to Jump

2017-11-09 investorplace
With the emergence of the “fast-casual” sector, such as Panera Bread Co (NASDAQ:PNRA) or Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) before its food-poisoning scandals, pure fast-food plays have been suspect. Why eat at a McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) restaurant when other options offer a much better experience? Still, Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM) holds strong, and YUM stock holds even stronger. (70-0)
