I would buy MCD except I worked there a long time ago and cannot bring myself to invest for personal reasons.
@Max 2.0 My SBUX stock, on the other hand\, has been a very profitable investment.

11 straight years of dividend increases for SBUX and a 5 year DGR of 17.61%, which is 10% higher than MCD during that same time frame. And a much, much better performer over the last 10 years.

@Josh Borenstein -- yet, for income investors, $MCD may be a better choice due to its higher yield. For investors in accumulation (like myself), $SBUX probably is the better choice! I'm hoping to focus on $SBUX soon.
Established a HON position last year. Holding a substantial (for me) OGE position already, but it looks pretty tempting to add more here.

Excellent report. Thanks, FerdiS.

I used to own McDonald's ($MCD). Now I'm a Starbucks ($SBUX) man. They are in similar enough businesses that I don't really want to own both if I can avoid it, although I have thought about doing just that at times.

I'm quite intrigued by Riverview Bancorp ($RVSB). I like the little banks. I will have to have a look at this one.

Thank you so much for doing these reports!

@wildpitcher -- thanks Dave! I own both $MCD and $SBUX. I've owned $MCD longer, and it has delivered annualized returns of 26%, vs 24% for $SBUX. ($SBUX dropped a bit recently!)
Starbucks ($SBUX) was founded in 1971, not 1985. That's the whole point of its current 50th anniversary Starbucks Rewards game:

@Nescience -- thanks for pointing out the error! I'll submit a fix.
Keep them coming. Thanks for the article. TTEK pays almost nothing
but for those who were patient in the mid 20s, it sure paid off. A stock
not discussed much.

@AlieGee -- cheers! All the best with your investments!
Good article, I'm looking at LSI, already have MCD. Thanks
@Kurt Licherovsky

Life storage is a solid well respected reit. LSI is it steady but not spectacular.
Holder since 2008 has returns 71% in dividends cost basis is 32.65 the adjusted cost basis is 9.44. I will not sell because of the capital gains. If you buy in below 112 you'll get 3% yield. imho
