11:43 EDTYUMYum! Brands trades lower, levels to watch
The shares are trading close to session lows at $74.60 following news of a tainted meat scandal for KFC operations in China. Dragon TV of Shanghai reported that Husi Food Co. sold the company expired chicken repackaged with altered expiration dates. The $74 area is an important one technically for the shares. A breakdown below $74 would be bearish for future price. Holding price at $74 would put the stock back at the lows of the range since mid-February of this year.
