+ Watch MCD
on My Watchlist
With its universally recognized Golden Arches, McDonald's franchises and operates fast-food restaurants around the globe.
the basics are always a winner long term
The dollar menu new advertisement should be "It's a dollar, what did you expect?"I personally (age 30, 150 lbs) don't touch the stuff but would love MC'ds to bottle the special sauce and put it on the shelves at retail stores being that is someting I would buy.In the long run, and by looking around at people, I think MC'd will be fine. Honestly I think they should just bite the bullet, put a well made burger on the menu, charge me $7-10 for the thing and I'll gladly come back.Also, the whole commercial "see it's all white meat" is a fail. We do inspections at our company and everyone knows to shape-up a few days before the inspection. I highly doubt MC'd just dropped in unexpected asking to look around. I wasn't born last night and I can smell something akin to cow pasture at times passing your stores. Wendys is worse, oh god just freeze the things!
To big to fail, mcd will figure it out
Despite their shortcomings. They are still the number 1 fast food in the world with a great dividend
The stock is down 10% from its highs and down 8.1% in the past 3 months on concerns about U.S.competition in the resturant space (U.S. is 30% of total sales), possible weakenss in Europe (4% of sales) and, of course, the China chicken supply issues (23% of total sales). However, the company's cash return story and stock action make it an interesting value play.
Worthless driven company using addictive chemicals and Yeast Addictive sugars to make addicts.
I prefer Quiznos.
Div. (Yield) $3.24 (3.5%)
Dividends will become increasingly valued in the next few years
Fast food is being disrupted by Chipotle and others in the US. McD's reputation in growth markets like China is being hurt by quality concerns. They keep trying to branch out from burgers (salad, coffee), but aren't as successful as rivals.
Oversold and trading near its 52 week low. Management needs to realize Michael Bloomberg and his crowd will never be eating at any of its restaurants. They need to provide value meals to their base customers, simplify menu choices, and stop trying to be something they are not by removing low selling items from the menu. Give the people what they want! The stock should bounce from current levels regardless of management's action (or inaction).
Losing domestic share, growth tougher to come by as fast food continues to be disrupted and redefined. They'll return $19 billion to shareholders in the coming two years, but that won't be enough to outperform.
Despite a growing trend for healthier food in the U.S and abroad; there is no denying that MCD continues to be a strong leader in the fast food industry and this trend will likely continue to grow for not only years, but generations to come!I believe part of MCDs competitive advantage is that the company is recognized universally. Whether or not the food is "good"; their brand is as strong as it gets.Furthermore, while they are well known for their core products (ie: big mac, etc) they strive for international growth and tailor some of the product offerings to fit the needs of respective countries. I say wait for a slight pull back and MCD is a strong buy. I am bullish on it for 5 years and beyond. Plus, a nice dividend yield of 3.20% is another reason to rejoice.
They continue to be the leader in the Fast Food Industry. They continue to move into new international markets.
The Walmart of Fast Food Restaurants.
Fundamentals are good, Dividends are 3+%, dividends have grown 11% over the past 5 years. The entry point could be better. $95 would have been very good.
The innovation just isn't there.. yes it's a solid blue chip, but $WEN, $DNKN, $PNRA, $CMG and Taco Bell are all rapidly changing the landscape of the fastfood industry.
A solid company with a good business model, easy to understand.I remember standing at the walk up window at one of the first, no indoor seating.Their margins are great. They could well afford to treat their employees better,but they are no worse than there contemporaries.
