What are Wall Street analysts saying about Yum! Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yum! Brands stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Yum Brands’ shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. The company reported first-quarter 2020 results, wherein earnings met the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues beat the same. However, the bottom line declined 22%, while the top line rose 0.7% on a year-over-year basis. However, the company has been witnessing declining revenues at its Pizza Hut division. This along with decline in net new unit growth and low system sales has been affecting comps. Notably, earnings estimates for 2020 have declined over the past 30 days, depicting analyst concern regarding the stock’s growth potential. However, continued focus on digitization, delivery services and global expansion are likely to aid the company in the upcoming period." (5/30/2020)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We believe David’s financial and institutional knowledge made him a strong right-hand to Mr. Creed during a period of rapid change. During his time as CFO, Mr. Gibbs has had a strong role in the transformation of 77% franchised business in 2015 (pre- Yum! China spin) to a 98% franchised mix today. In addition, the company has been adept at reducing overhead (from 3.4% of system sales in 2015 to ~1.7% in 2019) while signing deals to bolster growth or capabilities. Lastly, we believe David has had a hand in making acquisitions or alliances with technology companies (GrubHub, QuikOrder), consumer insights consultants (Collider Labs), and brands (Telepizza) to bolster franchisee support or accelerate growth. In addition, Yum! Brands is on track to deliver on its targets of >$3.75 in EPS (from ~$2.20 in 2015) and 100% FCF conversion (from ~85% in 2015)." (8/13/2019)
