More on McDonald's (MCD): The Golden Arches achieves the consistency it was looking for, but mainly on the downside as higher commodity and labor costs cut into earnings. Even after factoring in the effect of the strong U.S. dollar on results and decent numbers in Australia and China, the overriding theme is dominated by the sub-2% growth seen across major regions. Expect some Q&A on those "negative" October trends at the firm's earnings call slated for 9:00 AM EST. MCD -2.1%. (webcast)

    I think adding the calorie information to the menu, while in the interest of health should be applauded, will contribute to down draft in revenues as well.

    As a part of a value/income investment portfolio MCD should be one of the core holdings. I maintain approximately 5% in MCD and plan to continue long term.
