A $60 handle on MCD would give it a dividend yield over 5%. That would give you utility company yield on a company with a 36% return on equity. At that price I'd sell the internal organs of relatives to load up on it. I think seeing that price is unlikely.

+1 rec for laying out your opinion.

FWIW, I think the only way MCD share prices reaches the $50-$60 range is if it splits.

Like chk99 said, the dividend yield and valuation would just be too attractive well before it dropped that far and I can't see business falling off enough to cut the share price nearly in half.

Disclosure:  Long MCD.
