Just last month, one of those bulls, BACnumber1, touched on McDonald's still-very tasty growth prospects:

I love the expansion. [McDonald's] is doing everything right by expanding their addicting food into places like Russia, India, and other parts of Europe, and of course, China. ... Expect the profits to continue pouring in, and a stock price of 150 in 2 years. Best stock I see right now is [McDonald's]. That is why it's my first new pick for 2013. Yep. I came back to [CAPS] just for this pick.
