Professional Outlook, Will EU's Deal Hold the Markets? - Equity Research on Caribou Coffee Company, Inc. and Yum! Brands, Inc.

MACAU--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - Today, announced its research report highlighting Caribou Coffee Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBOU) and Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM). Full content and research is available at

Markets are starting to step in the right direction, with the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) increasing from $600 billion to $1.4 trillion, a significant move to strengthen the safety net in place for Europe's most troubled countries.

It is likely China and the IMF will contribute to the bailout fund, with Greece alone receiving $180 billion in fresh aid. The remainder of Greece's obligations were halved in the process, with private bondholders of Greek debt settling at 50% -- allowing banks to recapitalize at a healthy 9% reserve and bring Greece's debt burden down to 120% of GDP by 2020.

An important consideration is political commitment to this road map and probability of ongoing support for European Central Bank (ECB)'s recent deal. Currently the global community appears to be on point with ECB's initiative, an outlook that should be sufficient to support markets around current levels.
