MCD: McLovin' It

Friday, 15 Aug 2008 | 11:11 AM ET
MCD CEO on Growth
Discussing McDonald's global expansion, with James Skinner, the CEO of McDonald's

McDonald’s is the kind of stock you can buy and then forget about, Cramer said during Thursday’s Mad Money.

Now he’s always been a proponent of tracking your holdings weekly – and the rule still applies to MCD – but he’s convinced that this company has some great long-term prospects.

CEO James Skinner appeared on the show today, lending credence to Cramer’s claims. He talked about the Olympics, the importance of having a talent-rich staff, how a strong U.S. dollar affects business, and even offered some advice on how Starbucks can turn itself around.
