McDonald's sales edge up on better US results

FILE - In this Dec. 20, 2010 file photo, McDonald's signs sprout from the restaurant's parking lot in New York. McDonald’s says a key sales figure edged up modestly in July, 2013, as the Dollar Menu and Big Macs in the U.S. helped offset declines in other parts of the world. The world’s biggest hamburger chain says global sales rose 0.7 percent at restaurants open at least 13 months. That included a 1.6 percent increase in the U.S., where it said “everyday value offerings,” breakfast and staples such as the Big Mac drove up results. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, file)
