  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "In line 4Q EPS into better than expected RLMs across all segments, particularly the US with lower commodities and pricing offsetting negative SSS. US SSS likely to stay negative in 1Q against a tough year ago comparison. More detail on '17 outlook to come at March Investor Day, but overall we expect growth to be fairly muted with re-franchising winding down. Maintain Hold with $115 PT." (1/24/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "McDonald’s shares have outpaced the Zacks categorized Retail-Restaurants industry year to date. McDonald’s has marked a turnaround in the domestic market driven by its all-day Breakfast platform and national value platform–McPick 2. It is trying to strengthen its position in the U.S. through initiatives like menu innovation, introduction of value meals, efficient marketing and improved service. As a result, 3Q16 marked the 5th consecutive quarter of positive comps growth in the region. Still, decelerating comps growth remains a headwind given the overall weakness in the restaurant space. Even so, focus on drawing customers in international lead markets bodes well while global comps at McDonald’s have been positive over the past 5 quarters. Yet, higher labor costs along with currency headwinds are likely to keep profits under pressure. Also, political and economic unrest in some parts of the world might harm revenue growth."
