What Wall Street Expects from McDonald’s 1Q18 Earnings per Share

Analysts expect McDonald’s (MCD) to post adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $1.67, which represents growth of 13.7% from $1.47 in 1Q17. The EPS growth is expected to be driven by an expansion of the EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases. Analysts are expecting McDonald’s EBIT margin at 41.0%, compared to 35.8% in 1Q17.
