Yum Brands' (YUM) Q4 earnings are due out after the bell today, with analysts expecting that EPS rose to $0.82 from $0.75 and that revenue inched up 0.1% to $4.12B. Investors will be particularly interested in the impact on Yum's earnings of a scandal in China over the use of chickens that were allegedly given dangerous hormones. The affair could have hurt same-store sales by 6% after they increased 9% in the first nine months of 2012.
