The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, Yum! Brands is down about 5% after announcing that same-store sales in China fell further than expected due to some of the company's chicken suppliers in China being under investigation. The guys talk about how this affects McDonald's by extension, just how big of a problem it is, and whether or not investors should see this as a potentially lasting headwind.
