Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

With a modernized restaurant real estate footprint after $9 billion in remodeling investments, McDonald’s is well positioned to take advantage of evolving digital ordering habits.

Bears

Franchise economics could deteriorate if commodity and wage inflation continue to outpace sales growth, particularly in markets like California. This could blunt development appetite for new store growth.
