    You are correct in recognizing that MCD is no longer a growth stock. However, I would watch very carefully if/when interest rates start going up. Dividend stocks usually get hammered. Have an exit strategy. You can always get back in after the "professional investors" have calmed down.

    Sentiment: Sell

    At 8 times that puts COP under $30. Proportionally the dividend would be about $1.50 at current yield. Of course Jones could be overly pessimistic in their analysis.

    Well, it's always an honor to hear from one of the Great Thinkers of our New Age of Enlightenment. I guess we can all learn a thing or two from rwh4fshg.

    Manuel, you got it mostly right. It happened in Japan, not china. But you 100% right about another bad news day for the golden arches.

    Wouldn't be my first mistake in the market. I fully expect that COP will recover at some point, the trick is to figure out when. I no longer have the stomach or investment horizon to mess around in commodity driven stocks. I just never seem to get the timing right. Bought COP before the PSX spinoff so I've been through the entire cycle once and do not intend to hang around and go full circle again. I DID make some money so, yeah, I'm convinced I did the right thing. Isn't making a profit the whole point of this exercise? The stock market is what it is, I don't like to make a moral issue out of every trade.

  • How does the price of oil get cut in half and COP is still trading in the high 60's? It does not make sense to me. Every commodity driven stock I've ever looked at the share price was driven by the price of the underlying product. Take a look at gold or copper miners the past few years. What am I missing? Someone posted that the dividend is in danger - another a negative that the market seems to be ignoring. I've sold my COP shares and would not touch another oil or oil services company at this time.

    Sentiment: Hold
