McDonald`s Corporations is expected to
report earnings on Tuesday 22 before market open, and the reported
EPS forecast for the fiscal Quarter ending September 2019 is $2,21
which is up from last years $2,1 for the same quarter.
So far this year, the stock is up 17% and that is 2% lower than the S&P 500. Nor is it as good as its restaurant peers. Earnings is expected to be $2,21 a share on revenue of $5,48 billion. Previous quarter, they had an earnings of $2,05 a share and revenue of $5,34 billion.
Analysts have praised McDonald`s use of
technology and their investments in AI, but also its experience of
the Future restaurant remodeling.
Earlier this summer, McDonald`s partnered with Doordash to expand new sales in the direct delivery market. A direct attack on Uber Technologies’ Uber Eats.
McDonald`s is the largest food
restaurant in the world and their move to adopt plant-based protein
patties for Beyond Meat can give McDonald`s a boost. This is a pilot
project and it doesn`t mean that fast food chains will stick to
keeping plant based products on the menu.
Beyond Meat is a huge success and
partnered with McDonald`s across 28 locations in Canada, but at the
same time the company`s burgers were pulled from locations in another
big regional Canadian fast food chain called Tim Hortons.
The demand for alternative proteins continues to skyrocket and analysts expect that the plant based products will take a huge bite of the traditional meat industry over the next decade. Barclays believe the market for alternative proteins could hit $140 billion by 2029.
It is the same players. The same people. Intelligent agency`s leaking to The Hate Trump Media Mob. Same reporters and same politicians in Washington saying that this is crazy. Impeach him. The president is unstable. He is unfit to do this job, and so on.
The players know that their Russia Hoax is dead and that`s why they started with this Ukraine story. They all know that Trump will be elected in 2020, so if they want to stop him, they need to do something now. It`s all a never ending witch hunt impeach him cycle.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) was reading from the transcript live on TV, but what he was telling was fabricated. Can you believe that? He said: “I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent.” But Trump never said that. That words was not in the phone call.
California Congressman Devin Nunes
(R-CA) said the Democrats are accusing Trump for crimes. They blame
on him for something he have never done. This is a serious issue.
They fabricate nonsens to impeach him.
Once the Democrats gets busted on it,
they laugh about it and say it`s just a parody. But nobody laugh
about it at all. This is serious. A poll made by Reuters said only
37% of the American people support this impeachment.
The biggest loser are the Democrates. Once a great political party with John F Kennedy and Bill Clinton. Now, just a shadow of itself. A party ruled by the Deep State and the Media Mob.
Porsche is out with a new car. Not an
ordinary car but an EV. Porsche presented its first fully-electric
sports car to the world a week ago. We all know Elon Musk`s Tesla
success but Porsche is the real big electical pioneer where the
electric powertrain is embedded deep in the Porsche DNA.
Ferdinand Porsche, later the founder of
the company of the same name, was fascinated by electicity even as a
teenager. As early as 1893, the 18-year-old installed an elctric
lighting system in his parents house. Over 100 years later, Porsche
is out with the brand new Porsche Taycan.
«The Taycan links our heritage to the
future. It comes forward the success story of our brand – a brand
that has fascinated an thrilled people the world over for more than
70 years,» said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of
Porsche has announced the name of its
first full-electric sports car during the official celebration of the
anniversary «70 years Porsche sports car» – Taycan. The name
translates as «living young horse», referring the center of the
«Our new electric sports car is
athletic and performance-oriented; a car that is capable of longer
distances, and represents freedom», explains Oliver Blume. Here
comes the first electric sports car with the soul of a Porsche, he
The first models in the new series are
the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo. They are at the cutting edge of
Porsche E-Performance and are among the most powerful production
models that the sports car manufacturer currently has in its product
The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from
zero to 100 km/h in 2,8 seconds and has a range of up to 450
kilometres. The top speed is 260 km/h. The Taycan is also the first
production vehicle with a system voltage of 800 volts instead of
usual 400 volts for electric cars.
This is a particular advantage for
Taycan drivers on the road; in just over five minutes, the battery
can be recharged using direct current (DC) from the high-power
chargin network for a range of up to 100 kilometres.
By 2020, Porsche will have invested more than 6 Billion euros in elctromobility. In other words; there are more to come.

Walmart is the world`s third largest
employer by numer of employees. 2,2 million worldwide last year with
1,5 million in the U.S and 700,000 international. Walmart Inc is an
American mutinational retail corporation that operates a chain of
hypermarkets, discount department stores and grocery stores.
The company is expedted to report earnings on Thursday 15 before market open. The report wil be for the fiscal Quarter ending July 2019. The consensus EPS forecast for the quarter is $1,22, and the report for the same quarter last year was $1,29.
As of April 30, 2019, Walmart has
11,368 stores and clubs in 27 countries, operating under 55 different
names. The company is the world`s largest company by revenue, with
US$514,405 billion. It is a publicly traded family-owned business, as
the company is controlled by the Walton family.
So far in 2019, Walmart is the largest
U.S grocery retailer, and 65 percent of Walmart`s US$510,329 billion
sales came from U.S operations. Their investments outside America
have seen mixed results. Its operations and subsidiaries in the U.K,
Central and South America, and China are highly successful, whereas
its venture failed in Germany and South Korea.
Their approach to Amazon`s busines
model and international expansion will continue to lift the company
further. The street is looking for a top-line growth of 1,7 percent
but there is concerns over the impact of trade war.
Many investors will watch out for the
margins on the report as the cost of some of the goods are changing.
JPMorgan has estimated in a report that the company could see up to
40 percent reduction in operating profit because of the tariffs on
Chinese imports. But that will have an impact on the next quarter.
The online sales is a success and its
going straight up. The e-commerce activity are up 37 percent YoY.
They compete with Amazon and they are both speeding up their delivery
times. In my recent article the headline was retail acopalypse, but
what about Walmart?
They have also closed a lot of stores
but Walmart has the best developed web grocery business with 2,450
stores offering curbside order pickup.
Walmart`s online growth has come at a cost to profitability, though. Gross margins of 24,3 percent were in line with analysts estimates but did mark a slight YoY contraction. That can be attributed to higher labor costs, plus online sales that typically deliver lower margins that in-store sales.
The company also said in a report that transportation expenses have eased somewhat this year. CFO Brett Biggs recently said; “Our first quarter results put us in a good position to achieve full-year goals.”
Progressive Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
likens anti-Israel resolution to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the
Soviet Union. The Media Mob say Trump is a racist and say nothing
about Omar who is supporting BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions)
BDS is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting various forms of boycott against Israel. Some «smart» people are often protesting against Israel but it is nothing more than anti-semittism. In other words; Hate.
