StockCall Early Morning Insight into Wendy's, Yum! Brands, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean Cruises PR Newswire LONDON, April 18, 2013 LONDON, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumer spending is the backbone of the U.S. economy. Post the financial crisis of 2009, as unemployment rate rose sharply; consumers scaled back their spending, especially on discretionary items. However, the labor market, notwithstanding last month's disappointing jobs report, has shown signs of improvement since late last year. If the recovery in the labor market continues then consumer spending on discretionary items can be expected to rise, benefiting companies such as The Wendy's Co. (NASDAQ: WEN), Yum! Brands Inc. (NYSE: YUM), Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL), and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL). Shares of all these companies, except Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., fell in Wednesday's trading session as the broad market came under pressure following some disappointing earnings reports.
