+ Watch MCD
on My Watchlist
With its universally recognized Golden Arches, McDonald's franchises and operates fast-food restaurants around the globe.
Simple. Kids love McDonalds and always will. McDonalds is everywhere. There will be occasional missteps which offer buying opportunities. Over long time horizons this is a foundation investment for your portfolio. Gives stability for the inevitable economic downturns over the years. McDonalds is a lot sexier investment when poor market conditions prevail. Dividends rule.
Older part time worker supply, lower food costs, belly flop union attempts. MCD isn't over priced. I'd grab a quick spike buck but I'm betting play money it won't fall as much as the S&P
I bought this fine equity as a core dividend holding in my Roth IRA. Consistent growth in revenue and cash flow, consistent dividend increases, international dominance and an ability to change with the times makes this an ideal core holding for the long term that will most likely outperform the broad market. Also, Morgan Spurlock is a self-righteous windbag.
Going to lose share in America with turn to healthy food
McDonald's is a American icon that will become a Global STOCK THAT WILL DOMINATE IT'S COMPETITION!!!
it has the right product mix for most customers
Timeless brand - on sale thanks to a quarterly revenue hiccup. Back up the truck.
International marketing strategy is sound, cannot "over-invest" in one particular region.
already saturated a market that will be declining in coming years, little room for expansion, will be hit hard by health care costs and health concerns of population, brand name will lose value with more negative conotations
This account is an experiment to see if good customer service reviews on www.yelp.com for public companies which have locations in or near Vista, California (my hometown) will lead to market-trouncing results. Any business that gets a 2.6-5 star rating will get a green thumb, and any business that gets a 0-2.5 rating will get a red thumb. For businesses with multiple locations in Vista, I will take the average of all of those location’s ratings. This isn’t intended to be exhaustive…I’ll probably only rate 100 tickers at absolute max – this is simply intended to be an experiment. It’s a flawed one, I know, but hey I might as well have some fun here. :)Currently, the 30 closest McDonald's in and around Vista have an average 2.267 star rating on Yelp, thus this company gets a red thumb.
A US staple, aggressive advertising, continues to innovate, I still get drawn in to eat there when traveling - nostalgic
MCD downgraded to a 3 star s&p rating (hold): July 22, 2013S&P LOWERS RECOMMENDATION ON SHARES OF MCDONALD'S TO HOLD FROM BUY (MCD $97.68 ***):- We trim our '13 EPS forecast $0.04 to $5.59, but raise '14's by $0.01 to $5.95.- We keep our target price at $110.- Q2 EPS of $1.38, vs. $1.32, misses our $1.41 estimate.- Same-store sales rose 1.0%.- We lower our forecast for 2013 same-store sales growth to 1.0% from 2.0%, reflecting weak consumer spending and increased competition for valued-oriented consumers.- Despite the early success of premium products such as McWrap, we think MCD is losing its appeals to the millennial generation.- We see margin pressure near term, as MCD tries to retain market share.
Good entry point.
MCD is a stalwart in the US and is rapidly expanding overseas. It pays a great dividend and is keeping up with the changing art of fast food business!
Menu innovation and lower food input costs provide plenty of dividend friendly cash flow growth.

Booming. Great management. Innovative Menu. Good Dividend. Good buy.
I don't know, this is my first one. I used to work there and they are one of the stable big names so just thought I would see how it does. I might well make a fool of myself while making a "Fool" of myself. :)
