The whole tech sector has been facing a sell-off, and while some of the restaurants stocks have fared somewhat better, they have not been spared, with share price declining 2.67% over the last month. Yum! Brands is down 4.15% during the same time, and is heading into the earnings with analyst price target of $140.8, compared to share price of $119.8.

One way to find opportunities in the market is to watch for generational shifts in the economy. Almost every company is slowly finding itself becoming a technology company and facing cybersecurity risks and as a result, the demand for cloud-native cybersecurity is skyrocketing. This company is leading a massive technological shift in the industry and with revenue growth of 70% year on year and best-in-class SaaS metrics it should definitely be on your radar.
