"Not Lovin' It" - McDonald's Plunges On Heavy Volume

Tyler Durden's picture

McDonald's share price just plunged over 3% on massive volume. For now there is no clear catalyst for the move...

There is some inconformed desk chatter of a negative note from M Science in circulation with regard domestic comparable sales.

"Not Lovin' It!"

This MCD move is knocking 25 points off The Dow.

Of course, some have claimed that this weakness may be backlash from recent revelations about McDonald's employees saying they are encouraged to underfill cartons of fries.

'I worked at McDonald's and they taught me how to pinch the fry carton just right while putting the fries into them so that it looked full, but actually wasn't.


'I only had 1 customer call me out on it. He shook the fries out into his bag and poured them back into the fry carton himself and it only filled up half way, so I had to give him more fries.

However, the fast food giants have strongly denied the claims.

"Not Lovin' It" - McDonald's Plunges On Heavy Volume

My response: Maybe there are many who can no longer afford to eat at McDonalds anymore that will result in very poor same store sales figures in future financial news releases.

I did hear from people in my circle of influence that something else is brewing at the GOLDEN ARCHES and it is NOT GOOD. I will stop here. One phrase to give you a hint: Whole Foods and Amazon merger.

Uncle Warren blowing out of his MCD to cover his reinsurance losses.....

gmak's picture

Uncle Warren works hard to ensure that his insurance companies don't pay out, and delay, delay, and delay yet again until the beneficiary eventually dies or gives up. I doubt that he would be selling MCD to accomplish this. More likely he got insider information about something in the wind.

They're getting desperate -- today I ordered Chicken McNuggets that didn't include the Sweet & Sour Sauce, They told me that I need to buy the dip!

People are not going to give up on their salty fat laden food, and MCD has raised their dividend for 40 straight years. Anyone selling right now because the stock is three percent off an all-time high is not an investor.

I'll buy McD at 92 ish.

RE-insurance- read a book, dude.

"Insider information"?  LOL-  Hardee's making a new burger?  Oooooh......

scraping_by's picture

Insider information or insider action. Might just be some meaningless volatility to increase HFT revenues. A little nick on the way down, a little nick on the way up, it adds up to real money.

Be more specific...1% of what?

Mtnrunnr's picture

Your mom. What the fuck do you think?

jcaz's picture

1% of his $3500 IRA balance-  he's looking to score a sweet $15 today, after commish.....

Thats better than the dividend yield on gold miners. Playing their bullshit game better than they can.

are there futures on MCD stock-if so perhaps the banks are selling unbacked futures to drive down the stock price. Or maybe someone bought a chunk of puts.

You can bet your ass that a bunch of McD's execs were among the sellers if this is some sort of negative news just being found out at headquarters. Joe sixpack getting assfucked again.

Stock plunged right after Michael Moore announced he is going on a diet.

The only way for McD to recover is to promise to hire 10,000 refugees, preferably hepatitis- and TB-free ones.

Some someones know something. Not rigged against the little guy? Yeah, right. 

I agree, the whales are beached and the signs are down so no corporate "food" for a while.

The first to get in on the scam was from the most savvy Tribe.

"On February 27, 1992, Stella Liebeck, a 79-year-old woman from Albuquerque, New Mexico, ordered a 49-cent cup of coffee "

Better to spend the extra $2 and go to Denny's to get a better burger.

All I know is that I'm bulking up for winter in MN and those bastards keep cheaping out and not putting the cherry on top of the whipped cream on the mega sized chocolate shake.  It's always, sorry, we're out of cherries.  Need that extra boost to my insulin levels.
