McDonald's earnings call preview

  • Shares of McDonald's (MCD) reverse themselves in early action to move 0.5% higher despite an earnings miss with the company's Q1 report.
  • Analysts are chomping on the bit to get a crack at execs on the firm's upcoming conference call. Question on food input costs and growth in China will be key. Also, watch for any color on if comp sales in Q2 are trending positive.
  • The company blamed severe weather in the U.S. for sales sliding in Q1. Which analyst will ask how Chipotle pulled off a double-digit comp during the same period amid the same tough weather?

    Well, after 40 years of always stopping at MCD when traveling, no more. They used to have the best fries. Now the fries are like deep fried flour and water.
