NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Yum! Brands (YUM) shares are down -1.46% to $81.50 in after-hours trading on Wednesday after reporting second quarter earnings of 73 cents per share on $3.2 billion in revenue, both in line with analysts expectations.
TheStreet Ratings team rates YUM BRANDS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate YUM BRANDS INC (YUM) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated."
