  • McDonald's Is Bullish On 2014; Should You Be? [View article]
    First of all, their guidance as you call it is worthless. They would say they don't give guidance. The 3-5% sales growth and 5-7% earnings growth are just long term strategic goals in their "Plan to Win" which have been in their annual report every year for the last decade.
    Secondly, everyone that writes about the dividend fails to mention that
    they are slowing down the rate of increase in the dividend, and last time it was only a 5% increase. They are feeling some pressure.

  • The Rising Dividend Is The Only Reason To Buy McDonald's [View article]
    The fact that they eliminated their Angus burgers, means they have thrown in the towel in the premium burger market. They have given up and by doing so admit they can't compete with 5 guys, Smash burger, Red Robin etc. The king of burgers can't compete in premium burgers. WOW!

  • McDonald's Peaking: A Retrospective [View article]
    You might be referring to something like this "Notably, we will aggressively pursue growth opportunities in markets with great long-
    term potential. China, with 1.3 billion people and a growing economy, is a perfect example" This is a quote from their 2003 annual report.
