Yum Brands

The restaurant company is scheduled to report its first-quarter results on April 17. Analysts, on average, anticipate earnings of 73 cents a share on revenue of $2.7 billion.

"We now rank SBUX as our favorite given high visibility for above average 20%+ earnings growth through C14, followed by MCD based on the strength of the US business offsetting volatility in Europe, and our former favorite YUM third, now trading at a near record (even on raised US driven estimates) 400bp multiple premium on C13E to MCD and now above $70, within our $69- $79 sum-of-the-parts analysis," JPMorgan analysts wrote in March 23 report.

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.6%

Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin decreased from the prior year.

Yum Brands has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.67, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 15.67% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $90.66.
