    Analysts Expect McDonald’s EPS Growth to Slow in 2019

    McDonald’s Stock Is Up 8.2% since Its Last Earnings: What’s Next? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Analysts’ EPS expectations for 2018 In the first three quarters of 2018, McDonald’s (MCD) adjusted EPS rose 18.5% to $5.88. An expanded EBIT margin, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases drove the company’s EPS during the period. However, some of the growth in its EPS was offset by a fall in its revenue. During the period, the company’s EBIT margin improved from 38.4% to 43.6% due to increased revenue from a more profitable franchised business and sales leverage from positive SSSG (same-store sales growth). The company’s effective tax rate stood at 25.7% compared to 32.8% in the previous year. McDonald’s repurchased 26.7 million shares for $4.3 billion in the first three quarters of 2018. In the fourth quarter of 2018, analysts expect McDonald’s to post adjusted EPS of $1.89 to take its total EPS for 2018 to $7.75, a rise of 16.4% from $6.66 in 2017. During the same period, McDonald’s peers Starbucks (SBUX) and Wendy’s (WEN) are expected to post EPS rises of 13.6% and 32.6%, respectively, while Jack in the Box’s (JACK) EPS are likely to fall 1.8%. ## Analysts’ EPS expectations for 2019 Analysts expect McDonald’s EPS growth to slow in 2019. For 2019, McDonald’s is expected to post adjusted EPS of $8.23, an increase of 6.2% from $7.75 in 2017. This EPS growth will likely to be driven by the expansion of its net margins and share repurchases. Analysts expect McDonald’s net margin to expand from 28.8% in 2018 to 30% in 2019. At the end of the third quarter, the company had $7.98 billion left under its share repurchase program. Share repurchases drive a company’s EPS by lowering its number of shares outstanding. In 2019, Starbucks, Wendy’s, and Jack in the Box are expected to post EPS rises of 12.8%, 16.2%, and 15.0%, respectively.

    McDonald’s Stock Is Up 8.2% since Its Last Earnings: What’s Next?

    McDonald’s Stock Is Up 8.2% since Its Last Earnings: What’s Next? ## Stock performance As of January 8, McDonald’s (MCD) stock is trading at $180.22, which represents a rise of 8.2% since the company’s announcement of its third-quarter earnings results on October 23. The company is trading 22.7% higher than its 52-week low of $146.84 and 5.6% lower than its 52-week high of $190.88. In the third quarter, McDonald’s outperformed analysts’ EPS and revenue expectations. Also, the company’s same-store sales growth for the quarter came in at 4.2%, beating analysts’ expectation of 3.6%. Along with the company’s impressive third-quarter results, investors’ optimism surrounding its initiative to modernize its restaurants—including the implementation of self-order kiosks, the remodeling of its restaurants, and the expansion of its deployment of the Experience of the Future initiative—drove the stock’s performance. The company’s stock price was also positively affected by Morgan Stanley’s upgrade on November 29. The upgrade led MCD to hit a 52-week high of $190.88 on the day. ## Year-to-date performance In 2018, McDonald’s stock price rose 3.2%.
