On today's edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:
- Inflation in China is at a three-year high. So what does it mean for U.S. investors? And what does it mean for companies such as Yum! Brands
and TTM Technologies (NYSE: YUM) ? Our analysts explain. (Nasdaq: TTMI)
- And while Yum! Brands may have some popular restaurants in China, one of our analysts just returned from China, where he considered a different kind of menu item: live scorpion on a skewer.
- 7-Eleven is celebrating its unofficial birthday by giving away millions of free Slurpees. What can businesses learn from the lure of free giveaways? More importantly, how much do our analysts (and our listeners) know about 7-Eleven? Listen to a 7-Eleven quiz that can only be described as "Shrekalicious."
