NEW YORK, Dec. 07, 2018 -- In new independent research reports released early this morning, Fundamental Markets released its latest key findings for all current investors,.
An improving macroeconomic picture, technology-driven sales, and sound fiscal health were essential topics management sought to communicate during the McDonald's franchisees' latest earnings call.
McDonald’s (MCD) posted adjusted EPS of $5.88 in the first three quarters of 2018, representing a rise of 18.5% from $4.96 in the first three quarters of 2017. This EPS growth was driven by the expansion of the company’s EBIT margin, its lower effective tax rate, and its share repurchases partially offset by a fall in its revenue.
The fall in McDonald’s revenue was largely the result of its strategic refranchising initiative. To make itself more efficient and stable, McDonald’s adopted a refranchising strategy at the beginning of 2015. In the first nine months of 2018, McDonald’s same-store sales grew 4.5%.
Of the 32 analysts that follow McDonald’s (MCD), 78.1% have given it “buys” as of December 4, and the remaining 21.9% have given it “holds.” No analysts have given the stock “sell” ratings. On average, analysts have given McDonald’s a 12-month price target of $194.44, which represents a potential upside of 5.1% from its current price of $185.04. John Glass of Morgan Stanley, who is optimistic about McDonald’s modernization efforts, upgraded the stock from an “equal weight” to an “overweight” on November 27 and also raised its price target from $173 to $210.
McDonald’s (MCD) stock rose 6.6% in November on investor optimism surrounding the company’s initiative to modernize its restaurants, which included the implementation of self-order kiosks, the remodeling of its restaurants, and the expansion of its deployment of the Experience of the Future initiative. The company’s stock price was also positively affected by Morgan Stanley’s upgrade on November 29. The upgrade led MCD to hit a 52-week high of $190.88 on the day.
