    Global sales up 1%; US sales up 1%. So it's not what analysts wanted, but still UP. Get real: global and US economies are not exactly booming. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize there's a connection there

     

    MCD has shown growth, and these results are not in any way catastrophic or mind-bending or life-altering. Stock market overreations make me tired.
