What are analysts saying about McDonald's Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about McDonald's Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "McDonald’s second-quarter adjusted earnings of $1.73 per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 6.8% and rose 19% year over year (y/y). Total revenue of $6.05 billion beat the consensus mark by 1% but fell 3% y/y. The company recorded the 8th consecutive quarter of global comps growth. In fact, McDonald’s grew sales and guest counts in each of its top nine markets, for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, shares of the company outpaced the industry year to date. Notably, McDonald’s is trying to reinforce its position worldwide via various sales and digital initiatives. Also, increased focus on refranchising is expected toreduce its capital requirements, thereby facilitating EPS growth and ROE expansion in the long run. Yet, higher costs along with currency headwinds may hurt profits while a soft industry backdrop in the U.S. and macroeconomic concerns in some parts of the world might limit sales growth." (7/31/2017)
- 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "material amount" of cash to shareholders as it plans on buying back shares worth up to 15 percent of its market cap.2. The 'Sweet Spot'Strelzik argued that McDonald's is currently sitting in a "sweet spot" to take advantage of an improving restaurant environment that will emerge in the bottom half of the year.In fact, the analyst's model doesn't even factor in any industry-wide improvements, which could add even further upside to the stock.3. McDonald's Can Beat Its TargetsFinally, the analyst even suggested that there is a possibility for McDonald's to even exceed its targets, given: a) favorable food costs, b) improved G&A expenses and c) greater capex efficiency and a flexible approach to balance sheet leverage.Bottom line, McDonald's stock is trading at around 14–14.5x forward-12-months EV/EBITDA, which happens to be the lowest valuation among highly franchised restaurants and this is not justified as the company is a "premium brand." (4/21/2017)
- 3. Sanford C. Bernstein analysts commented, "experience of the future" (4/18/2017)
- 4. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "McDonald's remains one of our top Outperform names through 2017. We continue to see reasons for improving market share in the US and the company's long-term growth algorithm is rapidly coming into focus, which we believe is very attractive relative to restaurants and large-cap staples peers." (3/2/2017)
- 5. 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)

Consensus Ratings for McDonald's Corporation (NYSE:MCD) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
