Restaurants' Value Menu Looks Unappetizing as Market Sentiment Outruns Fundamentals

Sean Dunlop Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Sean Dunlop |

We expect sluggish sales growth to represent the key issue for the restaurant industry in 2023, following a year of investor concern regarding inflated input costs and margin compression. Though we see modest upside in wide-moat Domino's and view wide-moat Chipotle shares as fairly valued, the industry trades at a 5% market-cap weighted premium to our fair value estimates, suggesting that current entry prices are less than salient.

Company Profile YUM

Business Description

Yum Brands is a U.S.-based restaurant operator featuring a portfolio of four brands: KFC (26,930 global units), Pizza Hut (18,380 units), Taco Bell (7,790 units), and The Habit Burger (310 units) at year-end 2021. With $58 billion in 2021 systemwide sales, the firm is the second-largest restaurant company in the world, behind McDonald’s ($112.5 billion) but ahead of Restaurant Brands International ($36 billion) and Starbucks ($25 billion). Yum is 98% franchised, with the largest franchisee, Yum China, created via a 2016 spinoff transaction (after which Yum China agreed to pay 3% royalties to Yum Brands in perpetuity). Yum is the newest evolution of Tricon Brands, formerly a division of PepsiCo, and generates the bulk of its revenue from franchise royalties and marketing contributions.

YUM’s stock style is Mid Core.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
