Time to Buy McDonald's?

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jim Gillies and Jason Moser, discuss the top business and investing stories.

For the first time in almost a decade, same-store sales for fast food giant McDonald's (NYSE: MCD  ) took a 2% dip. Is this a symptom of bigger problems under the surface, or just a small pothole on an otherwise pristine highway? The guys take a closer look at McDonald's numbers at home and abroad, and talk about where they think the company's really headed.

After making investors rich in 2011, one small drop in same-store sales for McDonald's is something we should hardly bat an eye at, right? Except the company's stock has been one of the worst performing blue-chip stocks this year. What is behind this trend, and is it ready to head skyward again, or not? Our top analyst on the company will tell you whether you should be worried by this trend, and he'll shed light on whether McDonald's is a buy at today's prices.
