Analysts react in a lukewarm fashion to news that McDonald's (MCD) grew global same-store sales at a 3.7% pace in August. S&P Capital IQ analyst Jim Yim forecasts a difficult sales climate ahead for the company and notes results were boosted by extra weekdays in the month compared to last year. Also striking a cautious tone is Morningstar's R.J. Hottovy who sees macro headwinds sustaining and a dearth of notable product launches for H2.

    probably the only way these "analyst" can get in print is to be critical of success.

    By definition, analysts follow.

     

    If you don't know that MCD will prosper, then you don't know.

     

    I suspect that MCD will prosper, so I'm following MCD.
