McDonald's (MCD) in Focus: Stock Jumps 8.1% in Session

McDonald's Corp.MCD was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 8% on the day. Shares moved up after the company beat third quarter 2015 estimates on both counts. This led to solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent trend for the company as the stock is now up 13.9% in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this restaurant industry stock were revised over the past 7 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

McDonald's has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

However, a better-ranked stock in the same space is Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc. Cla ARCO , sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
