McDonald's closes in on triple digit return

  • Shares of McDonald's (MCD +1.3%) trade at their highest level since last July as the restaurant "staples" attracts renewed interest from investors.
  • A well-timed free coffee week at the restaurant chain helped to take the steam out of Taco Bell's national breakfast roll-out, note analysts.
  • Technical traders are making some noise about the move in McDonald's. A close of over $100 could add to the excitement.

    Triple digit return? What are you talking about? Make that: what do you think you are trying to talk about? Do you know what a return is? You are giving financial "journalism" a black eye it can't afford.

    Further proved the point which someone has made earlier that we can't trust news on SA since sometimes they are totally bait-and-switch(s) -- putting a whooping triple-digit return in the title.......

    Not much here to get excited about except the stock is closing in on $100. Definitely needs to polish up on terms, moving on to something else to read.

    This is just a write-up on a stock that is making a move...it's not an article where you get to tear the writer a new a$$hole for a typo or a poor word choice. If you bought the stock 5 years ago you would have a 100% return. Nobody at SA said anything about YTD or a 12-month return. The writer is telling you the stock has returned to a $100.00+ share price after being range-bound in the $90's for quite a long time. Anyone familiar with the stock knows exactly what the headline means.
