McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) closed 2,0% higher after UBS upgraded the stock to buy from neutral, citing expectations for U.S. comparable sales strength and a risk/reward position that “skews significantly to the upside.” McDonald’s is set up to have “one of the more compelling and visible U.S. comp. catalyst paths” for the next several months and throughout 2021, given multiple sales drivers and business investments, according to analyst Dennis Geiger. New price target set to $240 implies a 16% increase from yesterday’s close.
