07:39 EDTYUMYum! Brands now a 'show me' story, says UBS
UBS noted Yum! Brands revised its forward guidance and was disappointed as it undermined the confidence in the pace of the China recovery. The firm feels the guidance could be conservative, but said Yum! Brands is now a "show me" story with less benefit of the doubt offered ahead of a demonstrated recovery. UBS reiterated its Buy rating and $85 price target on Yum! Brands shares.

16:22 EDTYUMYum! Brands CEO says 'firmly committed to double-digit EPS growth in 2015'
Greg Creed, CEO effective January 1, 2015, said, “We are firmly committed to returning to double-digit EPS growth in 2015, delivering at least 10% growth with the potential to do significantly better. We fully expect to bounce-back in China and benefit from tremendous sales leverage as sales rebound. We have solid plans to drive same-store sales growth and margin improvement in China, while continuing to open new restaurants with confidence in the world’s fastest-growing economy. Further, sustained momentum at our KFC and Taco Bell Divisions, and the recent relaunch of our Pizza Hut U.S. business are also expected to contribute to our double-digit EPS growth. Our brands are the global leaders in their respective categories, and we expect to build on this strength with breakthrough product innovation, insight-driven marketing and digital leadership in the years ahead. Overall, we expect to open over 2,100 new international restaurants next year, further strengthening our lead in emerging markets. We remain focused on the three keys to driving shareholder value: same-store sales growth, new-unit development and generating high returns on invested capital. I’m confident we’ll deliver full-year EPS growth of at least 10% in 2015 and produce consistent double-digit EPS growth over the long term.”
