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

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yum! Brands stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Yum! Brands have outperformed the industry in the past three months. We are encouraged by the company’s solid prospects despite the fact that it missed earnings estimates in the fourth quarter. Moreover, Yum! Brands’ endeavors to drive growth by employing greater focus on the development of its three iconic global brands, increasing its franchise ownership, and creating a leaner and more efficient cost structure bode well. In an effort to enhance guest experience, the company has been focusing on deploying technology to more restaurants. Over the next three years, it expects to return an additional $6.5-$7 billion to its shareholders and predicts EPS of at least $3.75 in 2019. However, high costs of restaurant operations and soft sales due to refranchising are near-term concerns for the company. Estimates for current-quarter and year have been stable over the past 30 days." (4/22/2019)
