2017-05-19 COMMENT David Driscoll

This is up about 22% in the last 12 months, because they are trying to take advantage of technology to start to manage stores. Where they are now in bricks and mortar, they are going to get a huge amount of store growth. They are trying to maximize their ability to keep costs down. That is never the greatest idea to run a business. This is not expanding your revenues, it’s just keeping costs down.

2017-05-16 HOLD Lorne Steinberg

This has done an amazing job morphing its business. Coffee is the new growth area, which is very high margin. They have gotten good locations and understand the real estate game. If there were a big pull back, this is the kind of thing he would look at.

2017-05-04 BUY on WEAKNESS James Thorne

It has implemented the ‘Internet of Things’.  You can order without people.  They are getting great margins.  He would be a buyer on a pullback.  It is at a record high on a 20 year chart.

2017-05-03 BUY Kash Pashootan

Sold his holdings, but still likes it and is hoping to get back in. The company needed to reinvent itself, and did that by providing a 24-hour a day McDonald’s. The new CEO has done some great things by refranchising stores with a focus on technology. Trading at around 23X PE, which is not expensive given the good things that are going on. A low beta stock, and you need some of those in a portfolio. In a bad market, these are the names that hold up. Dividend yield of 2.6%.

2017-04-24 PARTIAL SELL Liz Miller

A perfectly good long term holding.  It had a recent pop and if you had a lot of profits she would recommend taking some off the table.  You expect it to grow in the US with GDP.  Internationally there is still room for them to grow further.  She thinks they are doing everything right. but it is a rich stock right now.

2017-03-14 PAST TOP PICK Kash Pashootan

(A Top Pick Jan 29/16. Up 8%.) The idea was that this was trading at such low levels. He started buying at about $100. The company needed to go through a transformation, and he had confidence they were going to do that. Sold his holdings. A lot of the easy money has been made and it is trading at fair value now.

(Market Call Minute.) If you are going to look at a quick service company, this is probably the one to look at.

2017-02-17 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

It has done very well.  But she prefers Yum Brands in that space.  She holds both the companies after YUM split.  MCD-N has brought in some growth with menu innovation.  They have room to grow outside of the US, but YUM China is a more direct play.  MCD-N is probably fairly valued.

2016-12-12 COMMENT Kash Pashootan

Starbucks (SBUX-Q) or McDonald’s (MCD-N)? He likes both. Has held this in the past, but sold it about a year ago, primarily because he felt he had capitalized on the 1st leg of the recovery. The share price has retracted since then, and he is taking a very close look at it and possibly stepping in again. This has a better yield and a better price to earnings ratio.

2016-12-07 COMMENT James Thorne

The numbers going to fast food restaurants is going down. All the McDonald’s are being automated. By taking people out, their labour costs are going down. It has probably had too much of a run for him and not enough dividend. He wouldn’t invest in this, but wouldn’t discourage people who want to. Dividend yield of 3.1%.

2016-11-30 DON'T BUY Gordon Reid

They’ve decided breakfast works, so they are going to make all day breakfasts. He is wondering why the market is rewarding them so fully for that. It is not a cheap valuation, so he would pass on this, until they come up with something that brings in more people.

2016-11-09 COMMENT Liz Miller

The fast food restaurant industry is very competitive. This stock has been struggling lately, which was partly on changing tastes in the US, and on diminishing returns. These companies sometimes get growth on product cycles, and they got them for a while on global expansion, but this is a very mature fast food company that exists globally now. They might have a few more places to expand, but fundamentally their business growth should be tied generally to the economic growth where they exist.

2016-11-01 BUY on WEAKNESS Kash Pashootan

This had a great run up. He sold his holdings in June at around $123. Had felt the juice had been squeezed in the early part of their recovery. There is no question this company is on a better path than a year ago, but feels a lot of that has already been priced in. If there was some weakness such as a 10%-15% pullback, or a catalyst for another leg up and share price, he would be a buyer.

2016-11-01 COMMENT Robert Lauzon

Very intriguing about 1.5 years ago when the stock was $90 a share. It has had a great rally. Have done a lot of cost cutting, brought in a healthier product line, and brought in the All-Day breakfast. That is now priced into the stock, and now we are back into just same-store sales. The stock is fairly valued right now. It is a dividend grower which he likes. He would like to see a little more visibility on what is ahead on new menu options, etc. He owns a small amount.
