McDonald's Still on the Value Menu

Stock Tickers

YUM KO MCD WMT

With weak third-quarter results coming out from Yum! Brands (YUM) and Coca-Cola (KO), McDonald's (MCD) investors are chewing their nails, anxiously anticipating what the fast-food giant will say on Monday. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the company's quarter-to-quarter performance though.

First and foremost, the struggles of the entire consumer discretionary space are nothing new. Even the so-called "recession-proof" stocks like Wal-Mart (WMT) have been hurt by weak same-store sales and reduced traffic. I don't believe there has been anything to suggest that these concerns will be immediately reversed as a result of the recent government shutdown.
