(A Top Pick Jan 29/20, Up 1%) He sold it last April during the meltdown. He saw danger signs of restaurants closing. Two-thirds of their business is drive-thru, but in-store dining looked vulnerable. But this has done well since then, so kudos to manager to maintaining their margins. No, he wouldn't have done things differently.

CMG vs. MCD - Why don't the stocks move in tandem if they're in the same business? CMG is going all-in with tech. CMG is more technologically savvy than MCD, though MCD is a good business. MCD is a dinosaur in comparison. MCD, though, is a great company.

Big store refresh. Share buyback program will take a bit to get going. Need to deleverage balance sheet. Can benefit as they shift business model to delivery. Key will be whether they see the drive-through traffic back. Not a terrible investment here. Peter Lynch's advice is to buy the stocks that you're already buying as a consumer. Yield is about 2%.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This fast food king has definitely benefited from the trend away from expensive restaurants. As we head into wave two of the pandemic potentially, this will continue to be on people's radar as an affordable break from cooking at home. Analysts at Bank of America just upgraded this to a $250 target. We would trade this with a stop-loss at $210. Yield 2.21% (Analysts’ price target is $221.52)

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)

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.
