In China, Yum!'s Chicken Ain't Finger-Lickin'

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser, James Early, and Ron Gross.

In this segment, lower sales in China hurt Yum! Brands' (NYSE: YUM  ) fourth-quarter earnings. The company also lowered guidance for 2013. This combined with the company's recent "adverse publicity from the poultry supply situation" in China have made for a difficult quarter. The guys discuss whether this is a bad year or a buying opportunity.

The relevant video segment can be found between 11:00 and 13:10.
