I assume that staying home is part of your parole terms and if you leave, your ankle bracelet will beep the police and they will put you back in a cell where scammers belong.
wow! ultimate stock alerts has helped my account tremendously. Lots of people hate on them but they have been making me money with their nyse and nasdaq alerts. (no pennies thank god) search them up.
Right on, and don't forget about the whining employees and their attitudes towards their fellow man when it comes to provide "service"... the entire McDonald's experience is a horrible one
They don`t even put mustard, mayo, or catsup on both buns!!! I stopped eating that killer food along time ago!!! And I am very surprised any parents at all let their kids eat that #$%$!! SELL, SELL, SELL!!!
I DO NOT want to see any of these low level, near minimum wage people post drivel about..
benefits, mean supervisors, getting to work on time, getting more hours, how to apply for a part time position, how much can they earn if they start sweeping floors rather than cleaning the urinals (by the way, take a bite of the green urinal cake, maybe it will help weed out the gene pool), and so forth. Take these gripes and issues to the Employee Assistance Helpline or whatever free government sponsored therapy you might be getting. This board is now been claimed by investors. All others? UNWELCOME.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
We've been selling a decent burger for a few months, time to make em eat the same old #$%$ they've beeen stuck with for 40 years.
Nice post from a guy who sees the problem. WW been talking about it and laughed at on these boards for years. The stock is still the same price it was 2 years ago and folks wondering why. A Buyback Plan doesn't fix THE PROBLEM. But the good news is, they don't need to spend any of that money buying back stock. It's just a plan. And they haven't realized it is the WRONG one just yet. So I'll pose a different solution to you. It's the one I described many times over on here already.
MCD should consider adopting the KO strategy and acquire some of these 'new brand' restaurants. They were on the right track with CMG but were too closed-minded to let the business grow by itself. The key is to seed them and sit back as an investor. Like you, as a parent watching their child stumble around a bit with you as a parachute. One, if not many of these concepts, will likely stick over time. Overpay IF need be. It can't be received any worse than what they've already proposed to shareholders. While implementing this strategy, their core business continues to wane, or strengthen during recessionary times as usual. But there's no sense bringing franchises back online if they don't want to. You want them to bear the risk that we see anyways. And then take them back at a discount down the road IF you want to. It fits the strategy perfectly since you could even use the rebought real estate to expand one of those new brands.
So while Easterbrook stumbles around with Dressing up his turd burgers, a Hamburglar makeover and a wasted BB plan, WW continues to wait...with a parachute.
There timing is simply the best! I shorted the market prior to it plummeting and made money, and went long when I received there daily video saying to buy at the bottom and again bigtime in the money on both calls! There daily video its free, and maybe it can help you like it has helped me.

I agree. The food sucks and the only good thing are the new chicken wraps. Otherwise I need to puke right after I eat.
Are your two kids Chinese? The growth will be in rest of world, as US growth fluctuates. Remember when bread was the no-no a few years ago, now there's Panera. I wouldn't count out the company that created Chipotle. You pay money for 2017 puts- while I get paid 6 or 7 more dividends during that time, increasing every year. Let's see who comes out ahead...
Very good ideas but the results are far from guaranteed. Would simply changing the colors and space be enough to change the way MCD has been viewed? They do need an image makeover but it has to be drastic enough to reach the desirable results. Maybe they should completely change the brand name as I don't see any other way to escape the unhealthy stigma associated to MCD.
The Greece deal is being priced in as we speak. It is fairly clear what the market expects from this deal. If the opposite happen, there will be a lot of red.
Love this stock because of the low wages paid to its workers, I dont think so...
But as these large investors would allow MCD to move to slave labor countries if give the chance ..
The smart money will get rid of this mindset!!!
