Shares of Yum! Brands (YUM), which owns the KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut restaurant concepts, are rising after the company reported mixed fourth quarter results, but reaffirmed its fiscal 2014 profit growth view of at least 20%. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Yum! Brands reported fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of 86c and revenue of $4.18B, compared to expectations of 80c and $4.26B, respectively. The company reported same store sales in its China division fell 4%, while U.S. SSS fell 2%. Despite the mixed results, the company's CEO David Novak said, "We are confident we have the people and resources to deliver at least 20% EPS growth in 2014 and re-establish our track record of double-digit EPS growth. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors this morning, research firm Stifel said Yum! Brands should be bought into strength. Stifel thought that fears about the company's China business were overblown. The firm kept a $95 price target and Buy rating on the stock.

PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yum! Brands soared $5.47, or 8.3%, to $71.63 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. The stock is up over 11% in the past twelve months.
