    Analytical review:

    • The Company has the biggest capitalization in the "Restaurants"sector among the issuers listed on the US stock market.
    • According to the latest report on the first quarter of the fiscal year 2016, the company's revenue amounted to 5.90 billion USD against a market expectation of 5.87 billion USD. MCD announced a net profit of $1.23 per share, which is better than a forecast value of $1.16 per share.
    • The Company's Return on equity and investments is the highest in the industry. Return on investments amounts to 15.96% and Return on equity - to over 60%, while the average values for this industry equal 9.35% and 14.74%, respectively.
    • The company's work efficiency is confirmed by high operating and net profit margins (29.74% and 18.99%, respectively) as compared to competitors' respective results (7.05% and 5.09%).
    • Another driver pointing at an eventual increase in the company's cost is P/E Ratio. MCD's P/E Ratio (23.64) is much lower than the average P/E in the industry (199.58) and in the sector (26.65), which suggests a further growth of the company's quotes.
    • More than 65% of the company's stock belongs to institutional investors. The biggest shareholders are Vanguard Group (7.02%) and State Street Corporation (4.92%).


    • McDonald`s Corp.'s recent report proves that the company's management has been working efficiently. The analysis of multipliers indicates the probability of the company's capitalization growth. Major part of the Company's stock belongs to big investment funds.
    • Thus, we expect that the company's quotes will be rising in the nearest future.
