Quibi's performance…

Quibi's performance since launching last month has led to advertisers seeking to defer payments and the company looking to cut expenses, Benjamin Mullin and Suzanne Vranica of the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the situation. Advertisers, including PepsiCo (PEP), Yum Brands' (YUM) Taco Bell, Anheuser-Busch (BUD) and Walmart (WMT), have asked for the changes reportedly because of concerns about low viewership or the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Quibi initially struck advertisement deals valued at $150M before its launch. Reference Link

JPMorgan analyst John…

JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe raised the firm's price target on Yum! Brands (YUM) to $91 from $81 and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares. The analyst believes the Restaurants and Food Service Distribution sector is near fair value "with few, if any, compelling near-term opportunities." High-traffic, destination oriented, bar-focused businesses without drive-throughs or meaningful delivery will likely have the most difficulty recovering previous peak customer counts, Ivankoe tells investors in a research note. McDonald's (MCD) and Wendy's (WEN) are the analyst's two Overweight-rated stocks in the global quick service restaurant space.

Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull upgraded Restaurant Brands (QSR) and Yum! Brands (YUM) to Buy as part of a broader research note on Restaurants, stating the rating changes reflect his "increased appetite" in fast food names offering a durable business model and improving consolidated operating performance potential. The analyst is citing his survey of "heavy sit-down restaurant users", with about 67% expressing concerns about returning to a sit-down restaurant because of the lack of social distancing and cleanliness. O'Cull believes that Restaurant Brands and Yum! Brands stand to benefit as all of their brands rely heavily on either drive-thrus or delivery service.

Wells Fargo analyst Jon…

Wells Fargo analyst Jon Tower raised the firm's price target on Yum! Brands to $94 from $85 and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares. The analyst sees a number of ways Yum! Brands is uniquely positioned to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis stronger and as an outsized share gainer, namely its ability to work with franchisees to shore up liquidity positions, a combination of franchise consolidation and lift in off-premise, and exposure to international markets with more extreme mandated business shutdown/a higher independent mix that could translate into outsized competitor closures and opportunities for the company to gain share.
