Where is McDonald's headed?

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 ( MCD 0.21% ) 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.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
