MCD : Fools Panic Selling Makes This a Buying Opportunity

RobtheMarketBlind lives for these conditions. A stock has a great month. In this case, February, where world wide sales increased 7.5%. In the USA, sales increased a whopping 11.1%!!!

However, this was below 'analyst's expectations'. Please note that McDonalds, the King of Eateries,  doesn't provide guidance...so the analyst expectations were just naked guesses!

Already however, price targets are being increased. Sterne Agee raises McDonald's ( MCD ) price target  to $112/share from $109 and reiterate its buy rating

This was a great month for BigMac and it's intro to chicken bites was another food product winner!

Also expect a double digit increase in it's dividend again this year. Last year the dividend yield growth was 14.75%.

Big MCD is also a perfect RTMB stock. It's safe. It outperformed the market in the year 2008 funk. It even didn't experienced large fluctuations during the debt crisis in the third quarter 2011.

The dumb money is selling, the smart money and RTMB bandits are awaitng in the wings for some nice profit. In the meantime, try the bread at Panera ( PNRA ), a fellow 'participant' on this side is always drooling about it.

The most recent picks by «DiviMo» are:
A buy rating on Home Depot ( HD ),
a buy rating on Pacific Sunwear ( PSUN ) and
a buy rating on Chico's FAS ( CHS ).
