Earnings Preview For Yum Brands (YUM) Stock

Video Length: 00

Today’s quick video takes a look at Yum! Brands (YUM - Free Report) heading into their earnings report. The company, which is best known for its Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and KFC divisions, has been on a nice run so far in 2016, and it actually hasn’t missed earnings estimates this year either.

The stock has also moved out of ‘sell’ territory and it is now a ‘hold’, while the earnings ESP suggests that the most recent estimates have been positive. This is definitely a good sign for YUM heading into the release, but let’s not discount the impact from a sluggish industry. The overall space is ranked in the bottom 25%, so it may be difficult for YUM to breakout given these trends.

Starting on November 1st, Yum China will be available for purchase on the NYSE under the symbol ‘YUMC’. Any additional details regarding this spin-off are likely to weigh on the report, and especially since the China division seems to have rebounded a bit following the food scare from a few years ago. Is it still a good idea to eject the China division given that this could be a high growth area for the future? We will have to see on the report this week, making this a stock that could see some seriously volatile trading in the days and weeks ahead.

Yum! Brands reports on October 5th after the bell and we are looking for earnings of $1.09/share from the company.
