The company behind KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell was screaming in pain on Wednesday, when Yum Brands plummeted 18 percent following a large earnings miss. However. considering the damage done, Jim Cramer was surprised that the stock only dropped that much.
"Given the ridiculous timeline of information coming out of the company, I'm actually surprised its stock wasn't down even more; that's how bad the story and the dissemination of the woeful news truly was," the "Mad Money" host said.
While Yum is a large international company, its driver has mainly stemmed from China. For years, investors have ridden the wave of growth in the People's Republic, simply by buying shares of Yum.
