Yum! Brands made the following statement in a regulatory filing: "Since July 21st, Yum! Brandsí China division has experienced a significant, negative impact to sales at both KFC and Pizza Hut following adverse publicity regarding improper food handling practices by former supplier, Shanghai Husi, a division of OSI. As such, China division same-store sales for the third quarter ended August 31st are now estimated to be approximately -13% versus prior year. While sales are beginning to rebound, they continue to be negative. Our brands have proven resilient over time and we expect this to be the case with this situation as well. As previously reported, we will provide updated guidance on our expected full-year EPS growth on our third-quarter earnings call. The company plans to vigorously pursue legal action against OSI and Husi to recover damages from the incident."

12:02 EDTTSLATesla hits fresh life high, and then turns lower
The shares have gone negative on the day after hitting a high of $288 earlier in the session, which is a fresh life high for the stock. That high did not hold for long, with price now at $281.92. A look at a 5-day chart shows what is a relatively characteristic behavior for the shares. It tends to advance by gaps, consolidates, and then gaps higher the following session and in the process creates bear traps. On a longer-term time frame it would take a breakdown below the prior session gap at the $275 area for the shares to be in any sort of real technical trouble. Resistance is at $284.12, the prior day close.
