Burger King will launch a plant-based burger imitating meat called the "Rebel Whopper" in Brazil in November, the company said on Tuesday, amid an international rush for mass-market chains to cater to vegetarian and vegan diners. Burger King will sell the vegetarian burgers developed by meatpacker Marfrig Global Foods SA for 29.90 reais ($7.26) in Brazil, representatives of the two companies said at a press briefing in Sao Paulo. The launch of plant-based products comes amid heightened consumer concerns over health, the environment and even animal welfare, forcing companies to adapt to consumers wanting to eat less meat.

HONG KONG/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Tab Food Investments (TFI), the biggest worldwide franchisee of Burger King, has asked Citigroup to help to sell a minority stake in the business in China and Turkey, a deal which could fetch at least $200 million, two sources familiar with the matter said. Istanbul-based TFI, founded by the Kurdoglu family, operates nearly 1,700 Burger King outlets in Turkey and China. TFI began investing in China in 2012 and now has a network of more than 1,000 Burger King restaurants in more than 150 Chinese cities, according to its website.
Restaurant Brands stock has jumped 47% year to date but it’s probably not because of the Popeyes chicken sandwich that is lighting up social media.
(Bloomberg) -- Burger King’s China franchisee is weighing a Hong Kong initial public offering after earlier scrapping plans for a U.S. share sale, people with knowledge of the matter said.TAB Food Investments is considering a listing of the Chinese business, which runs more than 1,000 Burger King outlets in the country, as soon as early next year, according to the people. It could seek a valuation of about $1 billion for the operations, one of the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.The Istanbul-based company could raise at least $200 million from the share sale, though it hasn’t set a precise fundraising target, the people said.TAB Food has been benefiting from China’s growing middle class and consumers’ increased appetite for foreign cuisine. It competes with Yum China Holdings Inc., which manages Pizza Hut and KFC operations in the country as well as local restaurant chains such as hotpot chain Little Sheep.A deal could help provide a boost to the Hong Kong bourse, which has seen several Chinese enterprises shy away from listings as a wave of protests hit the city this summer. Some companies are still pushing ahead, with Chinese artificial intelligence startup Megvii planning to submit a listing application as soon as this week, people with knowledge of the matter said. No final decisions have been made, and details of the potential transaction could change, the people said.Popeyes Rollout“We always assess IPO possibilities,” TAB Food Chairman Erhan Kurdoglu said by phone Friday. “However, there’s no concrete development on that front as of now.”TAB Food is the biggest franchisee for Burger King globally, managing close to 1,700 restaurants in Turkey and China, according to its website. Its China business, which started in 2012, is present in more than 150 cities.The company said in February 2018 that it was postponing a planned U.S. IPO of its global operations, without giving a reason. TAB Food will continue to evaluate the timing for a proposed offering as market conditions develop, it said at the time.TAB Food is also a franchisee of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Inc. Last month, the company signed an agreement with Popeyes to open more than 1,500 fried chicken restaurants in China for the chain over the next decade.\--With assistance from Taylan Bilgic.To contact the reporters on this story: Vinicy Chan in Hong Kong at firstname.lastname@example.org;Crystal Tse in Hong Kong at email@example.com;Manuel Baigorri in Hong Kong at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Fion Li at email@example.com, Ben Scent, Amy ThomsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

I know it can be hard to stick to your investing plan when the market is making wild swings on a daily basis. But some stocks are outperforming the market, and giving their investors plenty of good news; the key is to know where to find stocks to buy.So, let's take a quick look at current events, and you'll see why you shouldn't join the kneejerk sellers -- rather, stick with what's working.The market action has been driven primarily by more headlines about the escalating trade spat between the United States and China. After the Trump administration announced more tariffs on Chinese goods, China devalued its currency and noted that it would halt purchases of U.S. agricultural products. In the same breath, however, China also stated that it would levy tariffs on U.S. farm products in August. Talk about a mixed message.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe reality is that the United States is the breadbasket of the world, and foreign producers cannot compete with the efficiency of U.S. corn, soybean and wheat farmers. And, U.S. farmers tend to beat out the foreign competition on price, too, because U.S. farms are often larger and automated. So, since China is the largest consumer of soybeans, it cannot avoid U.S. soybean farmers for very long.Considering China's recent actions, the Trump administration labeled China as a currency manipulator. Previous U.S. administrations have been reluctant to give China this label, but the Trump administration is clearly exasperated with the ongoing trade negotiations. So, China is now being scrutinized by the IMF and may be reluctant to impose retaliatory sanctions on American goods.Then came news that our own U.S. tariffs on certain Chinese imports will be postponed from September to December. That being said, the negotiations are far from over. Wall Street remains distracted by the trade tensions, as well as escalating anti-government protests in Hong Kong. And given that it's August, the market remains particularly susceptible to these wild swings. After all, Europe and New York are on vacation and there's low liquidity in the stock market.So how do investors navigate this?You might be expecting me to say, "Buy U.S." - and you'd be right. Trade war or no, the ultra-low and even negative interest rates overseas are attracting capital to the United States nonetheless. I often say in my Growth Investor service that the U.S. market is the oasis, and the latest figures on second-quarter earnings prove this:According to FactSet, about 90% of S&P 500 companies have announced earnings and sales from the most-recent quarter. Of these companies, 75% has topped analysts' earnings estimates and 57% have beat sales forecasts. Average annual earnings growth has declined 0.7%, while average annual sales growth is running at a 4.1% pace. So, despite last week's gyrations, the foundation under the U.S. stock market remains very strong.But not all American companies are stocks to buy (especially at at time like this). My specific advice is to buy dividend growth stocks. You're looking for elite businesses that actually pay a good yield - and can sustain that dividend over time, while offering good stock performance along the way.That's the dream, for any investor…and at Growth Investor, our Elite Dividend Payers Buy List is enjoying 15% growth overall - while paying a 3.8% average yield. All because we're looking for income in the right places. Stocks to Buy: What You Want to See from Your Income InvestmentsBG Staffing (NYSEAMERICAN:BGSF) is a great example of an Elite Dividend Payer. Income stocks have a boring reputation but do not have to be boring -- and with a roughly 10% gain since last week's earnings report, BGSF is anything but. In fact, the stock was up for four days straight thereafter (which is pretty extraordinary, given the trade-war sell-off!)In the earnings report, the temporary staffing company posted a 4.1% year-over-year increase in revenue to $73.9 million, which was slightly less than Wall Street had projected. However, earnings per share came in at $0.37, which topped forecasts for $0.29 per share. So, BGSF posted a 27.6% earnings surprise.But more importantly, in a world where even the S&P 500 large-caps stocks are paying just 2%, BGSF pays a much fatter dividend - 6.3% - and that is the attraction here.So, we've already checked off two of the boxes I mentioned above: a good yield, and good stock performance.As for sustaining the dividend, BGSF is running at a three-year annualized dividend growth rate of 2%. It's paid dividends for 17-consecutive quarters, and it's expected to pay $1.20 per share over the next 12 months. Most recently, it went ex-dividend on August 9, so shareholders of record on August 12 will receive a $0.30 dividend on August 19. So, purchasing BGSF now would earn you an expected forward yield of 6.3%. And I've Got More Where That Came FromThis is why it never hurts to balance those more powerful (and potentially volatile) stocks with bulletproof stocks like my Money Magnets.To earn this distinction, a stock has to earn an A from my Dividend Grader tool - which assesses stocks much the way we did with BGSF above. Plus the stock has to earn an A from my Portfolio Grader - which assesses a stock's buying pressure from big institutional cash on Wall Street, and on 8 fundamental factors.After I run these numbers and find these AA-rated stocks, a select few stocks to buy will be added to my Elite Dividend Payers Buy List.And if you give Growth Investor a try today, you'll get instant access to my newly updated list of Money Magnets: 10 A-Rated Stocks to Buy Now.Click here for my free briefing on the warning signs I do see in the current climate. Given that we are seeing plenty of volatility, deserved or not, now is the time to own Money Magnets in YOUR portfolio.The post Stocks to Buy: 3 Factors of All the Best Stocks Today appeared first on InvestorPlace.

Shares of Restaurant Brands International Inc. fell 4.3% in morning trading Friday, after the parent of the Burger King and Tim Hortons restaurant chains disclosed that shareholder 3G Capital Partners intended to sell 20 million Restaurant Brands shares. At current stock prices, 20 million shares would be valued at $1.47 billion. The sale comes after the stock closed at a record high of $78.01 on Wednesday--it has now lost 6.1% since then--and has run up 40.1% year to date. In comparison, the S&P 500 has gained 16.2% this year.
