    McDonald's (MCD) is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across more than 36,000 outlets. Founded in the United States in 1940, the company began as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald. In 1948, they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth.

    A McDonald's restaurant is operated by either a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself. The McDonald's Corporation revenues come from the rent, royalties, and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. In 2012, the company had annual revenues of $27.5 billion and profits of $5.5 billion. According to a 2012 BBC report, McDonald's is the world's second largest private employer—behind Walmart—with 1.9 million employees, 1.5 million of whom work for franchises.

    McDonald's primarily sells hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken, french fries, breakfast items, soft drinks, milkshakes, and desserts. In response to changing consumer tastes, the company has expanded its menu to include salads, fish, wraps, smoothies, fruit, and seasoned fries.

    McDonald's Japan launches Big Mac with 3 times the meat

    McDonald’s Japan is launching two new supersized sandwiches on Wednesday -- the Grand Big Mac and the Giga Big Mac.

    Both are similar to the classic McDonald’s sandwich with beef patties topped with lettuce, cheese, pickles, and special sauce. However, according to Japan’s RocketNews24, each one is essentially an enlarged version of a Big Mac.

    The Grand Big Mac has two beef patties that are larger than in the original, upping the meat content by 30%. It will be sold for 52 yen, or $4.60. The Giga Big Mac has almost three times the amount of meat as a regular Big Mac with four beef patties packed into one burger. McDonald’s has described it as a suitable option for patrons who want “a satisfied sense of accomplishment.”

    With great sandwiches come great sides -- which is why McDonald’s Japan is also launching “grand-size” soft drinks and French fries, a size bigger than the largest usually offered.

    This new lineup will go on sale at McDonald’s restaurants in Japan on April 6, but only for a limited time. It will be removed from the menu towards the end of the month. Locations will also only be serving a limited number of these items each day.

    McDonald’s Japan is known for adding crazy, limited-time-offer items to its menu. Last November it sold 48-piece buckets of Chicken McNuggets, and in January it introduced “McChoco Potato,” which was just French fries topped with chocolate sauce.

    According to a recent Facebook post, a McDonald's (MCD) franchisee in Missouri is undergoing a remodel to his restaurant that will outfit it with large touch-screen ordering kiosks that allow for customized burgers, walls painted in earth tones, couches, digital menu boards and pendant lighting that looks fresh out of Ikea. The restaurant, which is scheduled to open on July 26, will even have table service and offer unlimited fries.

    This is becoming an alarming tradition. They don't seem to mind though.

    McDonald's is quietly testing a huge change that everyone is underestimating
    McDonald's is quietly testing fresh, never-frozen beef patties. The test is small — limited to just 14 restaurants in Dallas — but it has major implications for the future of the company, and right now investors are totally underestimating " just how seriously McDonald’s is evaluating" a larger rollout, according to Nomura analyst Mark Kalinowski.

    looks a good short candidate here. Yesterday's inverted hammer didn't do much to stop bleeding, but some TA shows bearish signals

    I am not skilled at starting threads so maybe Cy can lend me a hand.


    MCD reports Tuesday morning -- 7/26. After consolidating for four years the stock finally broke out of range late last year.

    It has room up to $137~ on continued market strength. Its a bit overextended on all time frames, but then again, this has been the case for AZO and a number of other stocks for years.

    Its only a $110B company with a global presence and brand recognition. The breakout we saw late last year -- 2015 may be the beginning of a bigger uptrend. May add a quarter before earnings and add on strength or on a measured pullback.

    If the market is set to trade absurdly higher, then funds have to deploy capital into MCD. This stock has been kept under rug for too long. Its got a 2.78% yield to boot while you wait for the stock to perform. Slow and steady grower. APAC region is still largely untapped. Its Mickey Ds time.

    Because I recommended buying it over the weekend. I have the opposite effect of Midas. JK (maybe not).
    I think its a blip. I have a bid/ask of $128.14 - $128.54.

    US sales continue to drag performance. Over the next year world sales should make up for the decrease. Same store sales increased for a second consecutive quarter. Overall it was a decent quarter.

    $120 offers initial support. If that does not hold, $114 is next. Break that level and its back down to $100.
    $137 still offers a reasonable upside target.

    Clearly their taking out all stops, no questions asked. Its about inflicting pain and forcing you to your knees.

    Trying to hold $120 but its proving difficult. This week's engulfing candlestick points to more sideways trading before and if any upside is offered. Time to take a pass on MCD. On watch.

    You have a sophisticated palate. Most people don't. Their fries with a really cold Dr. Pepper is tasty ever now and then, though.

    People are not buying MCD burgers, their not buying organic food from WFM, so where are they eating? Looks like KR and CPB, in-home dinning is the preferred choice. Although I've seen a lot of people ordering pre-cooked meals form companies like MED and WTW.

    Mcd is a good long term hold. Short term, may remain range bound. Call it $100 - $128.

    I was going to say CMG, but even that has been taking a dive.
