    It's starting...and this is only the beginning

    • People still watch SNL?

      Sentiment: Buy

    • They were just "horsing" around. I believe they only have three Taco Bells in the UK so earnings are probably safe. I once ate at Taco Bell and I will never return but that has no bearing on the horse meat scare. YUM food is going to eventually have to address the suitability of their food offerings to a public that will some day have to pay health premiums based on their body mass index. This will come but it is down the road a bit (at least I think it will take some time). YUM and MCD will not have a choice. MCD is equally offensive to the body mass index but they have a corporate DNA that seems to favor this kind of adjustment. I am not long MCD so there is not hidden agenda here. I just don't want to see people inditing YUM for suppliers that "this time" they really did not have previous knowledge of wrong doing (at least I think they did not know).
