Evercore’s David Palmer reacts to McDonald’s Q1 results

The stock is down 5.0% for the year. On CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”, Evercore ISI’s David Palmer said:

We see the stock creeping higher from here. Overall, you have a good dividend, its inflation protected, even more so than many of the so-called consumer staples. McDonald’s has been able to drive tons of price over the years. So, this will be well-positioned. We’re back to looking at MCD as an inflation-protected staple.

McDonald’s performance was particularly impressive considering tough comps, inflation, the Ukraine war, and the COVID lockdowns in China. Such macroeconomics factors, however, continue to be a headwind for the coming months.
