Guru Investment Theses on McDonald's Corp

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on McDonald’s - Apr 14, 2016

As discussed in our year-end report, we sold our small remaining position in global quick service restaurant operator McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) as 2016 began. During the year plus that we owned the stock, it gained almost 30% and was among the strongest contributors to performance. We appreciate the board’s and management’s solid execution.

Longleaf Partners Comments on McDonald’s - Jan 22, 2016

During the quarter, we began exiting our successful investment in global quick service restaurant operator McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) and completed the sale in the first week of 2016. The stock was a strong contributor for the year, up 31%, and the last three months, up 21%. When we initially purchased the company in late 2014, we believed management could overcome short-term obstacles and turn around same-store sales in certain struggling markets. Additionally, we saw optionality in the value of the company’s real estate assets. Over the course of our investment, McDonald’s hired a new CEO, Steve Easterbrook, a move welcomed by investors. His plan to revive the business both operationally and structurally helped drive the stock price. Although management and the board decided not to monetize the real estate assets, the stock price reached our appraised value in an unexpectedly short period. Over the year plus that we owned the stock, it gained 34% and was among the strongest contributors to performance. We appreciate the board’s and management’s solid execution. We hope that Mr. Market gives us an opportunity to partner with them in the future.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on McDonald’s - Oct 22, 2015

Another top contributor in the Fund, McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) stock gained 5% in the quarter, demonstrating the resiliency we saw in 2008 when it was one of two stocks with a positive return in the Dow Jones. Since taking the helm of the company, CEO Steve Easterbrook has announced initial plans to reshape and turn around the business. Comparable store sales are showing broad signs of improvement in key international markets such as Germany and China. On the capital allocation front, the company continued to repurchase shares at a strong pace (7% annualized) and indicated that pace should continue. The company is also undergoing a review of its capital structure and working to re-franchise stores at attractive values.

Mason Hawkins Comments on McDonald's Corp - Oct 20, 2014

We initiated four new positions in the quarter: McDonald’s Corporation, Scripps Networks Interactive, Vivendi, and one undisclosed name. Food quality issues at McDonald (MCD)’s China supplier, minimum wage pressure in the U.S., Russian challenges, European macro concerns, and improvements at competing chains pressured the stock and enabled us to own the company’s valuable real estate and dominant breakfast business at a discount.
