    McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Returns: 7 Things to Know

    McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) announced that it is bringing the Shamrock Shake back to its locations.Source: FlickrHere are seven things to know about the company's decision: * The drink will be out sooner rather than later, despite the fact that we are still more than a month away from St. Patrick's Day. * McDonald's said that you'll be able to get your Shamrock Shake through March 24, which is about a week after the traditional Irish holiday. * The holiday shake has been around for roughly 50 years since it had its debut in 1970. * The color is off-putting to some, while others love it as it is light green. * The McDonald's Shamrock Shake is made from a combination of vanilla soft serve ice cream, a minty syrup to give it its color and distinctive taste, as well as a whipped cream topping. * Unfortunately, the burger chain will not be offering the drink in all of its locations, so make sure you check with your local store to find out whether or not you'll have the opportunity to try it out. * As you can imagine, having the McDonald's Shamrock Shake make its return has people talking plenty about it on social media, with some considering it the best time of the year to visit its locations, while others would rather not see it at all.MCD stock is up about 1.9% on Friday.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips More From InvestorPlace * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher * 9 U.S. Stocks That Are Coming to Life Again * Should You Buy, Sell, Or Hold These 7 Medical Cannabis Stocks?

    Starbucks: A Stock So Strong Even Its Founder Can’t Kill It

    Howard Schultz may be under the biggest presidential delusion since Herbert Hoover's re-election run -- but that doesn't mean the company he founded is suffering. * 10 Stocks That Every 20-Year-Old Should Buy Howard Schultz Since the start of the year, Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) stock is up 7.4%. Shares that were trading near $50 in August are now trading near $70.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn its most recent quarterly report, sales were up 9% year over year, comparable store sales were up 4%, operating margins were 22% in the Americas and, in China, sales were up 18%. Net income came in at $760.6 million, 61 cents per share, on revenue of $6.63 billion. Other than uniting voters against him, this may be Schultz' most impressive achievement. Since stepping down as SBUX executive chairman last summer, the company hasn't missed him. A Stronger FranchiseIt's a stark contrast to Schultz' first retirement, in 2000, when he was forced to swoop in and rescue the company. He closed all stores for three hours to retrain the staff, then set a new strategy, clearing out the executive suite.This time, his long-term strategy of technology, geographic expansion, and huge Roastery stores seems to be working. CEO Kevin Johnson is a former Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) executive and he has moved the company decisively away from the Schultz "personality cult" into a sustainable franchise whose China operations have even growth investors interested. Starbucks now has four women on its board, most recently COO Rosalind Brewer, and enough self-confidence to feel it can beat a Chinese Starbucks clone called Luckin, even while Luckin considers itself a U.S. IPO. This Should Not BeGiven the growing competition, Starbucks stock should not be doing this well.Coffee has been discovered by Wall Street to be as potent an ingredient as sugar -- something you can buy for a few bucks per pound and get hundreds of dollars for in the form of finished drinks.Germany's Riemann family, through JAB Holding, has been buying up every non-Starbucks breakfast joint it can find, doing a partial spin-out of Keurig, as Keurig Dr. Pepper (NYSE:KDP), to bring public investors into the party. Brazil's 3G Capital bought Tim Horton's, the Canadian chain, as part of their Restaurant Brands International (NYSE:QSR).The woods are also still full of new coffee entrepreneurs and there are thousands of one-off stores, including many that have managed to extend their hours with beer, wine, and even music, in ways Starbucks failed at.Starbucks has changed America as no restaurant chain has since McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), and Schultz is the founder (even if he didn't found it).All this continues to fuel the fire of Starbucks bears, who insist the company is slowing down despite a lack of evidence. Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) downgraded Starbucks recently, with a price target lower than its February 8 opening bid of $69.14. The Bottom Line on Starbucks StockHoward Schultz is a divisive character, even in his hometown of Seattle. Like a figure in an Aaron Sorkin screenplay, he's a man convinced of his own righteousness, even while he appears out of step with the times.So while your barista insists "Howard doesn't work here anymore", take a moment to admire what he built, and what continues to build there. Starbucks packaged coffee products now have global distribution, and I have been guilty of pounding the table, for the stock during its recent run-up. At its current price Starbucks is fully valued, at nearly 31 times trailing earnings. But the dividend is fully backed by profits and pays 2.1%. It has risen 50% over the last five years. * 7 Forever Stocks to Buy for Long-Term Gains You may be criticized if you bet on "Schultz for President," but you're not stupid to own this stock.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    McDonald’s Breakfast Menu 2019: Say Hello to MCD Donut Sticks

    The McDonald's breakfast menu (NYSE:MCD) is constantly changing as the restaurant seeks new ways to attract consumers to its locations for something other than burgers and fries.Source: FlickrAnd while the burger chain has experienced success with its meat, egg and cheese McMuffins, it is always thinking of new ways to add more breakfast customers to its fold. The latest McDonald's breakfast menu will feature Donut Sticks, which are exactly what they sound like.The new item consists of doughnut sticks that are dusted with cinnamon and sugar, which the chain hopes will help it take the lead in the breakfast wars over other fast food giants. The new Donut Sticks will be available at most company stores around the nation starting on Feb. 20 and they will be available for a limited time.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOther chains have rolled out similar items in recent years, including Dunkin, which rolled out its own Donut Fries for a limited time last July. It makes sense for McDonald's to try out a similar item as Dunkin has had success with its own product-rumors of the Donut Sticks have been incoming since the beginning of 2019."We initially tested them in select Illinois restaurants in early 2018, and then again in October 2018," said Linda VanGosen, McDonald's vice president of menu innovation, in a statement. "We looked at several donut shapes, tested a variety of doughs and even worked to get the amount of cinnamon sugar just right for the recipe."MCD stock is sliding about 0.3% on Monday following the news.
