Mickey D's Earnings



October 24, 2011 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD

McDonald's reported earnings last Friday.  Highlights include:

 - Revenue growth in every region of operations around the world

 - Earnings beat

 - Commodity prices squeezing margins a bit.

 - Continued success tailoring the menu to market demands.

Combine a good earnings report with last month's dividend hike and - presto - new all-time high on Friday.  The stock did give a little of that back today.

Even at current above-market valuation, I believe MCD is one of the best dividend growth stocks out there.

Feel free to share your opinion here or at the article.  Is MCD a good value or has it climbed into over-priced territory?

Fool on!

It is a great stock, but it will fail if it doesn't change its thinking.  Eventually people will not eat at McDonald's if it hurts their health.  Eventually, the Altria Group will also be a footnote in history because it hurts people's health. 

In the meantime, they'll take advantage of people's ignorance and profit until it blows up in their faces one day. 

I won't interfere with you turning a profit, but I care about all of you enough to warn you not to consume their goods.  If you eat McDonalds once in a blue moon, okay, but if you or your family eat the stuff on a regular basis all the Dividends in the world won't help you.
