Shares fall

Yum! Brands’ share price fell 18% to about ~$68 per share after the company missed its key growth metrics in its 3Q15 earnings. Investors were disappointed, and the stock took a big tumble. The above graph clearly drives this point home.

Yum! Brands is heavily present in China, and much of its revenue comes from this region. Investors were concerned with the pace at which the company was making progress after the meat supplier issue that hit it almost five quarters ago.
