McDonald’s is the world’s largest fast-food company. After reporting 20.9% revenue growth in 2021, McDonald’s revenue growth has dropped into negative territory in the past two quarters. Fortunately, the company’s same-store sales were up 9.5% in the quarter, and analyst Siye Desta says the company’s recent investments in mobile ordering and delivery will serve as tail winds for digital sales growth. Desta says inflationary pressures may also drive restaurant customers to more value-oriented offerings, potentially leading to market share gains for McDonald’s. Therefore, McDonald stock is a good long-term investment for long term investors.
