    Hard to believe current share price

    I own other stocks. Agree about reinvesting divvys. But dividends don't make sense when you are losing principal. These fast food joints are cannibalizing themselves. Less than ten minutes drive from my home I have four McDonalds. Also have Wendys, Burger King, Taco Bell, Arby's, Chinese places, pizza shops, mall food court, grocery store food court, three or four Subways plus the usual selection of independent and chain sit-down restaurants (Appleby's, Cracker Barrel, Panera Bread, Chipotle). All are chasing a finite number of customers. While other sectors are consolidating the restaurant industry seems to be fragmenting more and more. I guess I just don't like the restaurant stocks at this point.

  • After the tanking on earnings a few weeks ago. I took a small profit and got out. Not sure why I bought in the first place except the nice dividend but what good is 3%-per-year when you can lose 3% of your principle in just a few weeks? MCD is a mature company and there is nowhere to base value other than earnings and dividends. MCD - way way too big to be considered a growth company I don't care how many locations the expand into. Fast burgers are a commodity subject to boom and bust cycles that are just too difficult for me to figure out. Again, I sold yesterday.

    Sentiment: Sell
