Getting the ball rolling on Thursday… We take a look at what drive's Expedia's ( EXPE ) stock value in the wake of its announced partnership with AirAsia. We also look at the planned makeover of McDonald's ( MCD ) restaurants. Wooden tables? Faux leather chairs?  Interesting decorative complement to a ball pit and yellow plastic slide. But I'll play along as long as they don't take away my Happy Meal and Oreo McFlurry.

Which channel contributes the most to Time Warner's ( TWX ) stock value? Find out in today's quiz. And have a look at our full model for Ford ( F ), today's free company.

Expedia - Company of the Day

Expedia, the world's largest online travel agency, recently announced an alliance with AirAsia to sell flights, hotel bookings and holiday packages in South-East Asia. The South-East Asian region is the world's fastest growing aviation and tourism market.

McDonald's - Forecast of the Day

McDonald's is undergoing a $1 billion makeover. By 2015, McDonald's expects to remodel its 14,000 stores in America. The remodeled store would be more like a mature version of the present stores, with wooden tables and faux leather chairs instead of fiberglass tables and steel chairs. Bright red and neon yellow interiors will be replaced with muted oranges, yellows and subtle greens.
