I just ate a double 1/4 pounder with cheese and am ready to take a healthy dump - will report back with details in an hour !
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Nothing. Nothing new to the menu. I may not have to do any research except for verifying the menu plan. Thanks for answering without answering Azzwips.
So, here we are, six+ months later and what has changed? Pretty much nothing.
I warned last year that if the board replaced the CEO with an internal promotion no material change was likely.
Looking at today's "turnaround" plan proves my theory. Different clown, same suit.
Wholesale change is the only thing that will stem the tide - calling a new sandwich "artisan" is just stupid and insulting, especially when it's a tad rubbery.
Maybe, MCD should just become a REIT given there cast real estate holdings and triple the dividend. I'd take that and a some fries over the "new" plan.
Still a SELL.
I'm amazed. Is this the best the multi-million-$$$ brains at MCD could come up with? It looks like the same old, same old BS that got MCD here. I realize that the problems are too big and complicated to address in a 3 minute presentation by the CEO, but this is pathetic! Easterbrook is one of the least inspiring public speakers I've heard in ages. (I'll have to remember to save that video for when I have trouble falling asleep.)
Say goodnight! Buybacks won't even keep this pig afloat very soon,fair value $84.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
MCD is next on my list to short long term but I won't be able to do the research until Wednesday. All I care about are menu changes. Can anyone tell me any good news they heard about menu changes?
Culvers is the best in breed right now. McDonalds is on their way out. It's been 30 Years since Culvers hit the scene, and they have dominated since! The main problem with all the fast burger joints Hardees, BurgerKing, Wendys, McDonalds is their absolutely disgusting burgers. THEY SUCK, YOUR BURGERS ARE DISGUSTING AND SUCK HORRIBLY, OH MY GOD VOMIT EATING THAT #$%$! I'M GOING TO VOMIT JUST THINKING ABOUT YOUR DISGUSTING BURGERS YUCK! Please change your burgers, and your buns oh my god your buns are just gross, they are so bad, blah!!!!!!!!!!!
Next, the people working at your counters, what the hell. I',m sick of it! Am I in the untouchables part of India, when visiting McDonalds? Where the heck do you find these people, and they are so stupid. I make my order, clarify my order, and return to the counter to get the stuff that was not in my order.
What the hell is wrong with these people. Are the people working in the McDonalds store a reflection of the people running the corporate side, no wonder the burgers are disgusting mush, and have not changed in 30 years! You must be a bunch of mindless morons who can't even take an order. I'm guessing people visit McDonalds allot less just because of their terrible counter experiences!
What has McDonalds done right in the last 30 years? They have upgraded their stores, they offer wraps, they offer salads. BUT I REALLY WONDER WHO THE HELL IS HANDLING MY FOOD, YUCK, IF THEY ARE AS BAD AT HANDLING MY FOOD AS THEY ARE AT TAKING MY ORDER, THEN DOUBLE YUCK! McDonalds has WIfi, fancy coffee, they have upgraded their stores, and double drive-through.
Listen McDonalds, you desperatley need to upgrade your burgers, and your staff taking the orders. McDonalds will be where Hardees is in the next 30 years. There is a very clear opportunity for a smarter fast food chain to step in McDonalds place!
We will pay 100% your cost for insulins....glucophage....diabeta....amputations......heart attacks....obesity......
if you can proved that this side effects came from McDonald's healthy diet ????
that's a plan...lol
I'm a basic person. Forget Panera and in and out. If I eat out, I go to McDonald's. For the most part, I just eat at home
