In this video, as part of the Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Fool consumer goods analyst Mark Reeth takes a question from a Fool reader, who writes: "Do you still consider McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) a core stock at this time? In light of third-quarter results posted [recently], plus the fact that McDonald's is losing market share particularly in the U.S., do you still consider this a core stock, or do you like Chipotle (NYSE:CMG) or Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM) better?"
