Arcos: Still a Golden Opportunity

Today, Foolish analysts Austin Smith and Andrew Tonner talk about Arcos Dorados, a company with a weak year-to-date performance but is still an amazing opportunity. Big exposure to Brazil may be a drag in the foreseeable future, but with a modest penetration rate compared with McDonald's and cheaper valuations than many of its industry peers, Arcos Dorados is a screaming buy today.

Arcos isn't for the faint of heart, though. As a purely international company, its performance is volatile compared with strong domestic companies with an international presence.
