Company Overview and News

YUM! Brands' Food Is Indeed YUM-Tastic.

2018-07-17 seekingalpha
YUM! Brands (YUM) fits the millennial portfolio. The company claims two top 100 spots in the 'millennials favorite brands' list. Management is shareholder friendly and has a clear goal of increasing the ownership of existing shareholders by buyback programs. YUM! Brands' management shot the arrow exactly in the bull's eye with its partnership with Grubhub (GRUB). I prefer YUM! Brands over YUM China (YUMC) because it offers more diversity while still getting a license fee from its former Chinese subsidiary.

2018-07-12 investorplace
In business and in life, you are allowed leeway for certain mistakes. But some unforced errors are not only inexcusable, they are intractably damaging, perhaps crippling. Papa John’s (NASDAQ:PZZA) founder John Schnatter found this out the hard way. Inexplicably, Schnatter used the N-word during a May conference call.

The Key Questions Facing McDonald’s Stock

2018-07-11 investorplace
I was a skeptic toward McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) for some time. MCD stock took off in late 2015, not long after CEO Steve Easterbrook took over. MCD bulls pointed to strong same-restaurant sales numbers. But I argued through 2016 that the seeming improvement under Easterbrook was coming from easy year-prior comparisons, not necessarily a massive improvement in the business.
