While there is certainly more competition out there nowadays, I really like what McDonalds is doing to be more customer-centric. The order touch screens are great. Your food being delivered to your table or car, really improves the guest experience.… More

The stock-market does not provide a good representation of the actual economy. Millennials are spending more than 2x as much as their parents did 20 years ago on healthcare, drugs, college, water, housing and entertainment. Simply put in the next few years this concept of using debt to buy things will be tested. The next economic downturn will be soon, but even in the worst of times, people will still need to eat. McDonald's is well run and provides cheap and affordable meals to even the poorest of citizens. This is a great recession-proof stock.

America is McFat. And I believe in America. Worldwide, McDonalds will help the common folk get fat as well. Which in turn, helps fatten our wallets. I think I'll go get a Big Mac.

While there is certainly more competition out there nowadays, I really like what McDonalds is doing to be more customer-centric. The order touch screens are great. Your food being delivered to your table or car, really improves the guest experience. I even had someone come around with a coffee pot and refill my coffee yesterday!

Steve Easterbrook's push toward remodeling and customer focus I think makes the McDonalds experience on par with Starbucks or Panera. I personally view a nicer McDonalds as an internet cafe, which cheap food, and a better option than Starbucks as a "third place" in some instances.

This is a good business that is getting leaner and pays a strong dividend. 20X forward earnings is a little more than i'd like to pay, but I think it should be a safe stock and potentially a market beater from here.
