Shares of McDonald's (MCD -0.1%) are back over the $100 mark bringing the question of valuation back onto the radar of some investors concerned about the restaurant operator's soft global sales trends. A quick snapshot look at the sector still shows McDonald's trading at lower forward p-e ratio than peers while generating more cash. Despite the recent runup in share price, McDonald's also boasts a higher dividend yield than Burger King, Yum Brands, Jack in the Box, and Sonic.

    Valuation should be a concern for a company that had only 2% rev gwth, 1.7% earnings growth last year, and not doing better this year , with negative SSS in Jan and Feb and facing currency headwinds. Who wants to pay almost 19 times trailing earnings for that kind of growth, while forward earning estimates have been on a steady downward path for a year.
