Used to own it. Doesn't see them increasing revenues. Cheap gas hasn't been the tailwind as expected, and now he expects increases in gas prices. Consumers are scared of the pandemic so aren't buying at MCD. Restos that rely in dine-in are less off than pick-up and delivery.

The business model isn't what it was 6 months ago. Does the stock price reflect the fundamentals of July 2020? Business is heavily challenged by government regulations for Covid.

This is one of the ones he deployed cash into recently. It will be a survivor in the restaurant and fast-food industries. They were generating good sales through COVID. As incomes were being hurt, people could still afford to go to McDonalds. For a lot of independents, they could be out of business if they aren’t already. (Analysts’ price target is $202.60)

The share price has come back nicely. Delivery sales are way up and drive-thru's, too. MCD will endure and succeed, but expect an earnings dip.

MCD vs. Starbucks Can they increase locations and sales per location? MCD is saturated, so they are trying to increase the latter. Starbucks is doing both. MCD makes money from franchise fees. They're equal, leaders in their field. He can't choose one over the other.

In the quick-serve restaurant space they have done well with drive thru business still doing well. More traffic will return, but they will need to make changes in seating first. A high quality name.

An excellent business. He's owned this since 2003, but sold last summer when the yield curve steepened and the CEO turned over. Now looks like a buying opportunity. Inevitably, he comes back to MCD. MCD owns their real estate, so they have the best locations. MCD outperforms when investors look for defensive stocks, but it underperforms when the market takes on more risk (like now). They've added beverages very well in Canada, namely coffee.

He wouldn't buy McDonalds unless it dropped down to $90, which is substantially lower than were it's trading. It's only a good buy for the long term if you can buy it at the fair market value.

Missed on earnings in October. He doesn't own it quite yet. It's a good stock that still owns the sector and brings in customers. A defensive stock. If it goes below $191, he would get out. He's looking to buy this in the next couple weeks. (Analysts’ price target is $222.63)

In their October report, earnings missed by 10 cents/share. In North America, MCD is cannabilizing their menu; with all-day breakfast, then what about lunch and dinner? He doesn't like food retailers in general. Decent dividend growth, but flagging sales are a red flag. Meanwhile, peers are building new stores internationally.

They own Yum! Brands in this space rather than McDonalds. One of the issues is that traffic into stores has been slowing in US locations. Arguably, growth with come in other emerging markets.

Relatively defensive position, and the market's rotating more towards cyclicals. A great company. Likes it very much. It will have its time in the sun and its time in the shade. Growing earnings and cashflow very smartly. Be patient and let it work over a long time.
