Bernstein would have liked to see Yum! take more steps to lower its risk, but the firm keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

12:24 EDTYUMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages have moved in a narrow range as the price of crude continues to fall. Near noon, WTI crude was down another 5% to roughly $60 per barrel. The weakness is effecting equities, as investors are concerned the oil price weakness is indicative of the slowing global economy. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., House and Senate lawmakers reportedly reached a deal on a nearly $1.1T bill to fund most of the government through September and avert a shutdown. The EIA estimated crude oil supplies grew 1.5 Mmbbls last week, while consensus expected a 2.7 Mmbbls decrease. The Treasury budget statement for November is expected at 2:00 pm ET, with the consensus expectation for a deficit of $63B. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan (JPM) declined 2% after guidelines proposed yesterday by the Federal Reserve would likely result in the firm managing to a higher capital buffer. Additionally, JPMorgan CFO Marianne Lake, speaking earlier at a Goldman Sachs conference, said the bank sees its Q4 reported markets revenues down by a "high teens" percentage and that its "core" markets performance in Q4, excluding the sale of physical commodities and allocation of preferred dividend expense, is indicated down 4% to-date compared to last year's quarter. Lake became the latest bank executive to discuss a Q4 trading slump, after Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan, speaking yesterday at the same financial conference, said the bank expects its Q4 trading revenue to be down on both a linked-quarter and year-over-year basis. Also yesterday, Citigroup (C) CEO Michael Corbat estimated that the bank's Q4 markets revenue would be down year-over-year by about 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Analogic (ALOG), which rose 12% after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. Also higher was Novadaq (NVDQ), which gained 11.5% after the company signed a multi-year distributor agreement with LifeNet Health that analysts at Canaccord said could potentially be a big deal and materially help its near and long-term prospects. Among the noteworthy losers was Yum! Brands (YUM), which dropped nearly 5% after the owner of the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands issued a negative preannouncement on its China business and provided lower than expected 2015 EPS guidance. Also lower were shares of Krispy Kreme (KKD), which sunk 8% after the donut maker reported weaker than expected earnings and revenue. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 164.41, or 0.92%, to 17,636.79, the Nasdaq was down 32.79, or 0.69%, to 4,733.68, and the S&P 500 was down 17.43, or 0.85%, to 2,042.39.

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.”

12:13 EDTSBUXStarbucks hits 52-week high after analysts applaud five-year plan
Shares of Starbucks (SBUX) are climbing after a number of analysts were upbeat about the company's long-term guidance, which it announced yesterday. WHAT'S NEW: After Starbucks yesterday estimated that its revenue would approach $30B in fiscal 2019, up from $16B in fiscal 2014, research firm Piper Jaffray analyst Nicole Regan wrote in a note to investors today that the stock could more than double within four years. The depth and breadth of the plan that Starbucks unveiled yesterday in conjunction with its guidance is "particularly impressive," she contended. Regan was upbeat about the company's plans to double its U.S. food business, launch new technology initiatives, and significantly grow its store count. Following Starbucks' update, the analyst has increased confidence about its ability to generate continued top-line momentum. Regan now believes her previous forecast for the stock to double within five years could be conservative. The analyst reiterated a $100 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. Meanwhile, JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe was impressed by the company's store expansion plans, sales driving initiatives, and margin enhancing measures, he wrote in a note to investors today. The company looks poised to increase its profits 15%-20% through 2016, and arguably through 2019 as well, Ivankoe stated. Starbucks is a classic, long-term core growth stock, added the analyst, who raised his price target on the name to $89 from $82 and kept an Overweight rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Starbucks gained nearly 3% to $83.58. Earlier, the stock set a new 52-week high of $83.92.
