Hey Bert, we appreciate your knowledge about YUM Brands, but the majority of use here on the YUM board are not interested in MCD, if we were we would go to the MCD board and find out for ourselves. Please help us keep peace & enjoy making money, wether YUM or MCD.
It's appropriate to mention MCD, CMG, WEN, and other fast-food restaurant stocks because they are peers. Also, The majority of my posts are about YUM, only mentioning MCD as an alternative to this stock since it is much cheaper relative to YUM, offers growth potential as it has fewer restaurants worldwide (and less than half as many restaurants in china), and has higher profit margins and earnings. Comparing the two helps prove my point that this stock is overvalued and analysts have raised their price targets well ahead of their EPS revisions (the valuation multiples just keep climing).
