In 1Q16, in $MCD's International segment, France continued to outperform the branded IEO market despite challenging macroeconomic conditions. Guest counts remain negative in Germany. In February, $MCD launched a new pricing structure. Initial results were in line with expectations but not sufficient to stand overall guest count declines.
$MCD stock rose more than 2% after it posted better than expected 3Q16 results, driven by global same-store sales growth. Meanwhile, earnings and revenue were lower than last year, hurt by refranchising efforts.
$RAI has received a $47 billion take over offer from British tobacco giant British American Tobacco! This is huge!
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
