China's retail sales shot up 14.9% in October, providing companies selling in the region a reason to breath just a tad bit easier. The China Generak Chamber of Commerce estimates retail sales will surpass 20 trillion yuan ($3.21T) in 2012 and add another 15% to that mark by 2015.

Walking the tightrope: F, EL, YUM, SBUX, TIF, MCD.
