    I got a buy order @$94.75. Until then the trend is down. I would short but I think they are going to replace the bobble head CEO.

    Silly time for a downgrade, but par for these useless analysts. The time to downgrade was before earnings LOL

    I cant believe someone had an outperform rating on MCD. For me it has been a hold for at least a year now.

    All these dividend income people jump into stocks like MCD. The dividend income bubble is going to pop.

    I've been hearing that for awhile.... some of these divvy plays have been gangbusters the last few years, especially JNJ.

    Just read all the blogs that have started the last year with the 20-30 year olds that plan on retiring before 40 by putting 70-90% of their income in dividend stocks.

    If I find value I'm buying. Why would I wait for an indefinite amount of time for a correction when I have half a century to collect and reinvest dividends? It's the people buying overvalued growth stocks with ridiculously high PEs you should be worried about.

    jump- come back to earth and reality. Most people I know put 70-90% of their income into everyday expenses- you know- high risk things like food, clothing and housing.

    In terms of historical quarterly yield. MCD is approaching the highest it's ever had in it's 38 year history.

    Brokers make their livings by our trades. It doesn't much matter which way the market moves so long as it moves.
    Long term investors love to hold MCD because of its consistent performance over many years. However, the alarm du jour published by their analysts may motivate some to sell or buy. More grist for their money mills.

    Yah, even if that turns out to be an exaggeration, even a 5% hit would impact revenues, earnings, growth, stock price, etc.

     

    Apparently it's hitting a lot of other companies as well.
