As a very small investor, you would probably be better off owning VTI. There's no commission to buy or sell (if done through Vanguard), management fee is a ridiculously low 0.05%, you get maximum diversification all in one convenient package, and it has been outperforming MCD by a wide margin in recent years. I sold MCD at $100 and put the money into VTI at $92.
Theyre off the $1 coffee, now it's $1 any size drink! Such a deal- but the losers will be crying they have to pay ~$1.39 now for a large coffee, instead of $4.50 for a venti at their beloved Starfux...
i love when i go to coffee or pizza and the have the promo for any size one price. when its coffee i say, do you have a thimble i could use, when they look at me peculiar i say, give the the biggest thing you effen got, ITS COFFEE ! same for pizza. is anyone really going to take the small for the price when you get a LARGE PIZZZA dam it. coffee and pizza is like beer, you want it all !
my grandfather bought bank of italy in 1922. it split so many ways, turned into BAC, transamerica, and united california bank. he did so well with it. when i was a kid we were going over it in the 80s. he said. i bought this stock cause i thought it would make me rich. stock will never make you rich. if BAC did not do it for him, my thoughts were what stock will. i have still been trying to get rich off stocks, but papa tony might have been right, hehe!
hehe! i have 20 shares of this stock somewhere in a retirement account. but not sure who is the dumber or the smarter at this point. JACK would have been a better buy for me at the time minus the dividend.
The program wasn't sustainable from the start. I'm not sure why they bother putting it through. The demand clearly outstrips the supplies.
This program no longer exists at ANY McD's I visit. I get a Large and so the price of my McD coffees went up by 50% just about everywhere. So we get less coffee at McD.
So what IF...MCD took a page out of KO's book and decided to take a stake in or even outright buy NDLS. Build the brand and spin out the company in a few years. Almost a carbon copy of CMG. Why not. What else is MCD going to do besides lose market share over the next 5 years.
I agree. I don't see MCD going down to 84 anytime soon even if there was a serious drop in demand.
