Seymour believes there are three major obstacles the company has to overcome: currency volatility, a CEO change and a slowdown in China. And issues in its China sales have been a problem for the company over the past three years. He expects Yum Brands will have a disappointing quarter, but that will give investors a chance to buy the stock.
"Look at the levels, $70 is a long-term level the stock has held over the last two years," Seymour said. "This is a level I think the stock will trade back down to, because they've disappointed the last three earnings numbers."
Seymour recommends taking profits at about $80 a share, while using the $65 level as a stop out. Over the past year, shares of Yum Brands are up about 10 percent.
