China Troubles Bite McDonald's: Chart of the Day

2014 started strong for McDonald's, but the U.S. fast food titan has seen shares falter on back to back earnings disappointments. Now, Mickey-D's, along with YUM! Brands, is battling back operational struggles in China, where a tainted meat scare is making for a more slender menu. Here, McDonald's is fighting off other burger making competitors, as well as Chipotle and Starbucks, both intent on cutting into the company's top line. TheStreet previews one stock that needs a summer rebound in order to satisfy shareholders, or perhaps a jolt to its menu, since it has so many new competitors.
