Finerman: I Would Not Jump Into Yum! Here

Shares of Yum! advanced as much as 5% in the aftermarket, after the parent of the KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut fast-food chains, reported higher quarterly profit Wednesday boosted by sales growth in China.

By the numbers, first quarter net income at Yum, based in Louisville, Kentucky, was $264 million, or 54 cents per share, compared with $241 million, or 50 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue was $2.43 billion, up from $2.35 billion a year earlier.

What's the trade?

Karen Finerman is cautious at current levels, “I own Yum! And I love Yum! But I would not jump in here. Good things are happening but its priced in.”

Guy Adami is on the same page as Finerman. "It's all good but I'm not certain the stock warrants the sharp move in the after-market. I'd be hard pressed to say you should get into this stock, tomorrow."

Tim Seymour is on the other side of the trade. He considers Yum! the McDonald's of Asia and says "for that reason alone you should want to own the stock. The valuation isn't terrible and they're more than giving you the growth."
