What are Wall Street analysts saying about Mcdonald's stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mcdonald's stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "McDonald’s shares outpaced the industry in the past year. Notably, growing guest count remains McDonald’s top priority and it is undertaking various sales and digital initiatives to this end. Increased focus on delivery, enhancement of digital capabilities, and accelerated deployment of Experience of the Future restaurants in the U.S should drive growth too. Efforts to attract customers in International Lead & High Growth Markets also bode well. In fact, global comps at McDonald’s have been positive over the past eight quarters. Yet, high labor costs and currency headwinds might keep profits under pressure. Earnings estimates for the current year have declined over the last two months raising concern. Even so, augmented focus on refranchising will cut the company’s capital requirements and facilitate EPS growth and ROE expansion in the long run." (4/19/2018)
  • 2. Longbow Research analysts commented, "Our expectations for MCD to report better than expected U.S. same-store sales growth in 3Q17 should drive both earnings and multiple upside," the analyst concluded. "Furthermore, the company has a couple of key initiatives that could drive further comp upside in coming quarters." (9/28/2017)
