    Taco Bell Vegetarian Menu to Be Tested in 2019

    How does the idea of a Taco Bell vegetarian menu sound to you? The taco chain, which is owned by Louisville, Kentucky-based Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM), announced that it will test a vegetarian menu sometime later this year. The goal is to bring in more consumers who may have been avoiding going to the company's restaurants due to their limited non-meat options. The idea of a Taco Bell vegetarian menu makes sense considering the fact that most fast food places make most of their income on meat-based products, yet the number of vegetarians in the U.S. has been rising, reaching 5% in a Gallup poll conducted on July 2018. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The chain has been historically helpful in accommodating its vegetarian customers, offering to replace meat for beans for free in its tacos and burritos for years. Such a move even garnered Taco Bell a positive reputation in the vegetarian community, with the American Vegetarian Association certifying some of the restaurant's vegetarian alternatives in 2015. The company said that the new menu will include a combination of existing vegetarian offerings and alterations, as well as some entirely new options. The decision could go a long way towards bolstering the restaurant's relationship with younger generations as vegetarianism is especially popular among Americans who are younger than 50 years old. YUM stock is down about 0.9% on Friday on the news, sliding a fraction of a percentage after hours as well. ### More From InvestorPlace * Morgan Stanley: 7 Risky Stocks to Sell Now * 10 Stocks You Can Set and Forget (Even In This Market) * The 7 Best Stocks in the Entrepreneur Index Compare Brokers The post Taco Bell Vegetarian Menu to Be Tested in 2019 appeared first on InvestorPlace.

    Apple and Starbucks Fell as Goldman Sachs Warned of China

    Apple and Starbucks Fell as Goldman Sachs Warned of China ## Apple and Starbucks Today, the stocks of the US tech giant Apple (AAPL) and coffee store chain Starbucks (SBUX) fell. At 11:15 AM, Apple was down 0.8% while Starbucks was trading with 1.3% losses for the day. While the broader-market weakness could be a factor driving these two stocks down today, let’s take a look at another important factor. ## Goldman Sachs warned of China Goldman Sachs (GS) analyst Karen Holthouse said in a note to investors, “The recent AAPL [Apple] announcement (while potentially also product-driven) cited trade concerns/macro, and MCD [McDonald’s] acknowledged softer trends in the region at a late November event,” reported CNBC. She added that Goldman Sachs’ “macro team also expects a continued slow down in GDP, at least partially driven by consumption.” Holthouse thinks Starbucks could be the next US firm to warn investors of China’s slowdown. She downgraded her rating of Starbucks to “neutral” from “buy” and also cut the price target to $68 from $75. On January 2, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, in a letter to investors, lowered the company’s guidance for the quarter ended December 29, citing weakness in China among other internal factors. A continued slowdown in China might affect the future growth of many other companies. Today at 11: 25, the S&P 500 Index (SPY) and NASDAQ Composite Index (QQQ) (VTI) both were trading with 0.4% losses. YUM! Brands (YUM) and McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) were down 1.7% and up 0.1%, respectively.
