Good To Be The King
Shares of Burger King jumped Thursday after the company introduced new menu items and said it expects eps to grow by 15% this year. Is Burger King about to make that other burger giant look like a clown?
I think this company is a good operator, says Jeff Macke. They’re benefiting from a little drift down as the public leaves the casual diners.
I agree says Pete Najarian. And they have a lot of international growth in front of them. In fact, they could have more growth than McDonald’s . I like both stocks.
I recommend owning McDonalds, counters Guy Adami. They’re focusing on coffee which could be very profitable.
If you’re looking for a coffee trade look at Starbucks , exclaims Jeff Macke, not McDonald’s.
