A Raise and Free Lunch!



September 19, 2013 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD

McDonald's announced a dividend hike today! This makes 36 years in row of higher payouts.

This year's 4 cent bump from 77 to 81 cents per share, or 5%, was less than the last few years and didn't seem to excite the markets much; the stock was down more than the broad market average.  But, double digit raises can't continue indefinitely and 5% more is still a decent bump. More coin from the bigger payout should cover about one more McWrap meal every quarter.

Fool on!  Russ

Well grats on the raise.  Personally I sold out my Wendy's stock so I no longer care which fast food place wins now heheh.  I had no choice, I was up 89%.  However, now I will say on the record that I hate that red head commercial spokesgal for Wendys.  It is never good to make a spokesperson to act SMUG. Whoever they hired for advertisement should be fired. 

And while I am on that topic what market is M&M, Poptarts and Aflac trying to capture?  Yes lets make inanimate objects animate and then eat them.  A smiling talking worm is dropped by momma bird to let her chicks eat it alive.  Children have cried over those. Dumbest ads I ever saw.

As dumb at the quizno commercials with a poorly singing mouse?  A fast food place with a mouse on the advertisement?

Seriously Harry, what advertising agency is being hired?  My niece actually cried during the worm eating Aflac commercial.  Fired these bozos.
