Yum Stock Trade Ahead Of Earnings Ends With A Loss – Feb 4 2016

On Wednesday Feb 3 after the markets closed YUM Brands reported earnings that beat estimates but saw revenue that disappointed. They beat estimates by 2 cents to 68 cents a share on revenue of $3.95 billion, below estimates of $4 billion. Sales out of China grew 7 percent year over year. Operating profit though, jumped 207 percent for the strongest quarterly growth not just in the China Division but throughout all the Yum Brands restaurants.  Again exchange rates impacted the profit by about $107 million.

I set up a new trade ahead of those earnings which unfortunately ended with a loss. This is not the first loss my portfolio has taken in this quarterly earnings season. I do not expect it will be the last.

This article outlines the trade and explains what happened, how large the loss was, how the trade might be improved and some thoughts on recovering the trade loss…This Yum Stock trade alert and discussion is for FullyInformed Members.
