Has held it for many years. Recently sold it to make room for one of her top picks. A well-regarded quick serve company. The Chinese spinout has done better than the Yum! Brands that trades in New York. Saw better opportunities elsewhere.

That the ongoing legalization in cannabis in the U.S. will push munchies stocks like YUM. Likes it very much. Better if they fix their Pizza Hut issues. Great to own.

It's a buy under $100, so don't buy it now at $105. Restaurants are going down during lockdowns this winter.

(A Top Pick Nov 12/19, Up 6%) Big presence in China, and there's lots of potential there. Also in India and European markets, and you want this exposure to markets not fully developed. Recently bought a new brand, which they can grow and franchise out.

His top choice in the restaurant space as we head towards a vaccine-led recovery. KFC is doing well. KFC also fine. If they can improve their pizza business, the stock will soar.

She still owns YUM. Their brand are Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC. In China, they have a large presence -- it represents about 30% of their revenues. Since most locations focused on drive-thru they are doing okay. There is still good growth opportunities overseas and they are looking into India to expand.

Two issues right now. Pizza Hut turnaround, and coronavirus. Too early to say how coronavirus will impact it. One positive is they get franchise fees. Likes the long-term profile because of presence in China and other EM. Would wait for the $100 range for new money.

Now is a good entry point. They own KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, which are well-represented in China and emerging markets. A third of KFC's revenues come from China. Taco Bell is strong in the US, and will expand internationally. Pizza Hut is the laggard in America where pizza is competitive; are closing some PH locations. They just bought Habit Restaurants, a small California burger chain, which is another branch that YUM can grow. Prefers this to QSR.

They own Yum! Brands in this space rather than McDonalds. One of the issues is that traffic into stores has been slowing in US locations. Arguably, growth with come in other emerging markets.

They run three brands. KFC amounts to 50% of their revenue and is exposed internationally where the growth is; their growth prospects look strong. Also holds Taco Bell, which is mostly in the US, but plan to expand internationally. Pizza Hut is underperforming, which is fully mature in the US, so some PHs will close and transform some into drive-thrus. Good management. (Analysts’ price target is $113.36)

It is a great company, but for him it is too expensive at 5.7 times sales. He prefers Chipotle (CHP-N) at 2.5 times sales.

Bad headline news about Tim Horton's franchisees doesn't help QSR-T. She'd buy Yum! Brands (KFC, Pizza Hut) instead because of its presence in China and now India.

A wonderful restaurant company with a number of great brands, but too pricey for him. All these fast food companies are very dependent on margins. Commodity prices have been low, but could easily spike up with any kind of inflationary scare. There is very strong employment data, but with any kind of set back, that will discourage people from going out to eat.
