Motley Fool Money is a one-hour weekly business radio show syndicated to radio stations across America. The latest show features an interview with film critic Nell Minow about the just-released Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps as well as our analysts discussing what some of the week's business news means for investors.
Chris Hill: All right, guys, let's go around the table and talk about the stocks on our radar. Tim Hanson, we will start with you.
Tim Hanson: Well as everyone knows who has been investing, it has been a pretty dismal decade for stocks. They ended 2009, ended the calendar decade for the first time ever in the red, on a total return basis. This has been very bad news for the asset management business, and one of the stocks on my radar is T. Rowe Price
James Early: Chris, I am thinking of a greasy cesspool where one can rub elbows with all manner of humanity. In other words, McDonald's
Hill: Once again, I have to comment on what I can only assume is just great inner turmoil with you constantly eyeing these stocks that are the antithesis of the healthy, organic life that you live.
Seth Jayson: James: "On the one hand, they poison the environment and school children. On the other hand, the yield is 6%."
Hill: "What a nice dividend!"
Hanson: "Check out that return on capital!"
Jayson: McDonald's should also be one of those companies Tim likes, right? Because of all its international exposure?
Hanson: It's true. McDonald's is No. 1 in Brazil for hamburger sales. They are doing very well there. They have outlets all over Asia and Europe as well. It's a popular concept with a lot of staying power.
Early: And I think in Brazil, not to hammer home Chris' point, but I think that they chopped down the rainforest so they can graze cows for McDonald's beef, right? So that sort of ...
Jayson: Let's hope not.
Hanson: That I don't know, that I don't know.
Early: I think it is true.
Hill: Seth Jayson?
Jayson: I talked a little at the top of the hour about computers being one of the bright points in that durable goods order report, and so I have got a computer-related stock for you, Logitech
