"Food commodity prices to increase for several years"
".. In October, the stock price for shares of Yum dipped after MCD and CMG each missed analysts' expectations in the third quarter blaming higher commodity and labor costs.
And the National Council of Chain Restaurants said in a recent study that using corn for a fuel source in America could add up to a $3.2 billion cost for the food service industry."
The last two and took numbers down for next year. Can not think of a worse sector to be in if Obamacare starts and you have food inflation and high unemployment. Restaurants will be killed by Obamacare.........and this one is already at a premium price and is not the low cost provider. Bad news if you ask me. Only thing holding this up now is mgt is buying the stock to try and save the EPS....wont last imho.
