McDonald’s is positioned to weather pandemic related
headwinds due of its focus on value, improved
access (mobile ordering, drive-thru, delivery), new
marketing approaches, and franchisee health.
McDonald’s global average unit volumes (more
than $2.5 million) and new restaurant cash-on-cash
returns (above 20%) exceed most QSR chains.
OWith a dividend yielding more than 2% and nearly
$17 billion in capital expected to be returned to
shareholders over the next three years, we see
McDonald’s as attractive for income investors
looking for exposure to global middle-class consumer
growth. Source Morningstar/Charles Schwab
