McDonald’s is the “best run major international company in the world,” Cramer told viewers on Monday. “It’s the one you should be buying.”
As bullish as the Mad Money host may be on Darden Restaurants and Brinker International, it is McDonald’s that he’s most excited about. MCD beat the Street’s consensus earnings estimates today by 4 cents per share; operating income climbed 11%. December same-store sales grew by 6%, with January, management said, keeping pace. So recession or not, this company’s performing well.
