Multinationals Booming As Dollar Hits Record Low Against The Euro; Procter & Gamble (PG) To Report 3rd Quarter Earnings Tuesday Before The Bell
Dylan asks if US investors should be worried about Europe’s lack of worry about the currency issue.
Tim Strazzini says the European companies are worried (because it makes their goods more expensive in America.)
Meanwhile, the panel is bullish on PG and Guy is also bullish on Hewlett Packard (HPQ) and McDonalds (MCD).
AMAZON BOLDLY GOES:
The headline: Amazon.com (AMZN) Led By Aspiring Astronaut Jeff Bezos, Sees Shares Soar 38% On Blowout Earnings
Tim Strazzini says the jump is illogical and believes the stock is overvalued. Jeff Macke agrees that the stock is ahead of itself. Eric Bolling adds that Google (GOOG) had the same earnings and they’re only up 8%.
The headline: Burger King (BKC) Shares Surge 3% As Earnings Rise On New Menu Items
Burger King Chief Executive John Chidsey joins the guys on the fast line to discuss the company's strong earnings.
Dylan asks why BKC has been so profitable without so-called “healthy” products.
Chidsey says the company tailors products to their “super-fans” which are people 18-49 and they want indulgent items. He adds Burger King also has a veggie burger and salads on their menu.
Jeff Macke asks how long can the company keep turning great earnings results.
Chidsey believes they can keep earnings strong for the next 5-7 years.
Jeff Macke says the challenge BKC faces is the consistency of the Burger King experience from store to store – because most stores are franchised. He asks if that’s improving?
Chidsey says yes – it’s improving dramatically. He adds outside the US (which is where 80% of new restaurants are being built) that’s far less of an issue.
Dylan asks about the company’s international ambitions.
Chidsey says outside the US, BKC has about 4,000 restaurants while McDonald’s has 20,000– so he sees plenty of growth potential.
Dylan asks the guys what they think of BKC.
Jeff Macke says he likes it more and more. Tim Strazzini is far less excited and thinks all fast food stocks are ahead of themselves.
