Yum! Brands Is Still A Good Long-Term Pick

Yum! Brands (YUM) has been a great growth story in the past decade. Shares have increased more than 200% since the end of 2008, outperforming the S&P by over 100%, with a lower volatility (measured in terms of beta) and an above-average dividend yield until recently. From 2002 until the Yum! China spinoff, sales per share grew at a 6.85% CAGR, while EPS grew at a 9.83% CAGR, faster than revenue thanks to the moderate but constant margin expansion and the constant share buybacks.

The Yum! China spinoff also traces a line in Yum’s history as the company committed to a faster shift to a franchise model. In fact, by spinning off Yum China into a franchisee, Yum Brands moved to a 93% franchise ownership structure and plans to reach 98% by the end of 2018 through additional refranchising activity. As we have seen in the past two years, this strategic shift is affecting the top-line but driving margins up, due to the franchising model’s different revenue and profit structure. While the Chinese market has received much of Yum's focus from an investment standpoint in the past, the spin-off will allow the company to focus on Yum's other regions, many of which have been relatively underpenetrated.

Recent Results And Guidance

Yum! Brands posted good results in the first quarter of 2018. EPS grew 38% Y/Y to $0.90, beating Wall Street Estimates by $0.22, although the beat was driven by non-operating items, particularly a $0.16 noncash gain related to the company’s recent Grubhub investment and a lower-than-expected tax rate. System sales grew 4% and comps rose 2%. The management confirmed its full-year EPS, revenue and margin guidance despite some minor issues such as supply disruptions in the British division of KFC, which negatively affected results.
