Analyst: Sell McDonald's Corporation (NYSE:MCD)

Stock Traders Daily has placed a sell rating on shares of McDonald's Corporation (NYSE:MCD).  The stock has extended relative valuation levels and appears rich when earnings growth rates are compared to P/E multiples.  The high current PEG Ratios makes MCD look unattractive to value oriented investors, and we do not consider MCD to be a growth story.

Given market related risks we believe shares of MCD are particularly vulnerable and we would sell MCD to protect assets accordingly.

Te Dividend is okay, but it will not be enough to protect investors in our opinion and investors in MCD are likely to see assets shrink over the next 12 months.
