07:50 EDTCMG, PNRA, YUM, BKW, MCDFast food chains want to be "fast casual," WSJ reports
Looking to draw more sophisticated consumers, fast food chains are adding fancier ingredients such as portabella mushrooms, citrus-herb marinated chicken and pepper bacon, reports the Wall Street Journal. Behind the move is a growing foodie culture as well as the success of chains like Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and Panera Bread (PNRA), a category called "fast casual." Customers order at the counter but pay for food above a hamburger, fries and a shake. Reference Link

13:46 EDTMCDEarnings Preview: McDonald's sees 15c-20c hit to EPS from China supplier issues
McDonald's (MCD) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings before the open on Tuesday, October 21, with a conference call scheduled for 11:00 am ET. McDonald’s franchises and operates fast food restaurants globally.EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.38 on revenue of $7.19B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.31-$1.51 on revenue of $7.03B-$7.35B. LAST QUARTER: McDonald's reported second quarter EPS of $1.40 against estimates of $1.44 and revenue of $7.18B against estimates of $7.29B. McDonald's also reported global comparable sales relatively flat, with U.S. SSS down 1.5%, Europe SSS down 1% and Asia/Pacific, Mideast, Africa SSS up 1.1%. On its earnings conference call, the company forecast a 4c-5c negative impact on EPS from currency in 2014. The company said it did not anticipate any material changes to the operating environment in the second half of 2014, but said near-term results would likely remain "muted." NEWS: During the quarter, the company said it expected to return $18B-$20B to shareholders between 2014-2016 and that $3.2B year-to-date August had been returned. McDonald's also raised its quarterly dividend 5% to 85c per share. McDonald's said China supplier issues would negatively impact the quarter by 15c-20c largely due to a combination of lost sales, expenses associated with its recovery efforts and the impact of these items on the Q3 tax rate, which is expected to be above the company's outlook for the full-year tax rate of 31%-33%. McDonald's recently announced that Russia temporarily suspended nine of its restaurants in the country. STREET RESEARCH: UBS said its recent survey indicates McDonald's does not have a brand image issue, but rather an execution problem, which will need to be fixed to increase traffic. The firm has a Buy rating and $110 price target on shares. Morgan Stanley downgraded McDonald's to Equal Weight from Overweight due to weakening fundamentals combined with U.S. market share loss, and international pressures. Wells Fargo said McDonald's 5% dividend increase was below the Street's 7%-9% outlook and portends badly for the company's operating cash flow, willingness to increase leverage ratios and its capital intensity plans heading into 2015. PRICE ACTION: McDonald's shares are trading down almost 8% over the last three months and are near flat today ahead of the Q3 earnings report.
