What say you Mickey D's?


McDonald's (MCD +0.9%) will give one of the first real good reads on how the restaurant sector fared in November when it reports global sales figures on Monday.

In October, McDonald's missed estimates when U.S. sales only ran up a meager 0.2%. Analysts aren't expecting a blowout November for the company.

Sector watch: Lower Black Friday week traffic in the U.S. is a concern, although some East Coast-concentrated chains will run up against a soft Superstorm Sandy-influenced comparable. While McDonald's struggles with its scale and reliance on a value-oriented menu, chains such as Jack In The Box (JACK +1.2%) and Wendy's (WEN +0.6%) have cut store costs and seen success with premium items. Shares of Burger King Worldwide (BKW +0.3%) and Sonic (SONC +0.9%) could also take their cues from how McDonald's performed in the U.S.
