Yum! Brands (YUM - Get Report) said Monday that fourth-quarter profit fell 5% and it warned that it expects earnings for the year to decline amid a controversy over its chicken suppliers in China.

Yum!, which operates KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants, said for January and February it expects sales at restaurants open at least a year in China to drop 25%.

The stock was cut to neutral at Baird on Tuesday and its price target was reduced to $60 from $72.


BP (BP - Get Report), the energy giant, said fourth-quarter earnings fell 79%, largely because of payouts related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

BP said net profit fell to $1.62 billion in the fourth quarter from $7.69 billion a year earlier. BP recorded a charge of $3.85 billion for its settlement of all federal criminal charges with the U.S. government related to the spill.

The fourth-quarter results topped analysts' expectations.
