$YUM's EPS excluding special items increased 14%, an improvement from 7% EPS decline in 1H15. Worldwide restaurant margins at company-owned stores were 18%, up 3 percentage points versus prior year and the EPS growth was impacted by foreign currency translation of nearly 6 percentage points, including unexpected devaluation of RMB in mid-Aug.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
