September 2008 Issue & Supplement

As they say at McDonald’s, you deserve a break today–and now you’ve
got one, thanks to the recent sharp drop in oil prices. I won’t try to
tell you that lower fuel costs, alone, will cure the turmoil in world financial
markets. They won’t. But oil’s spill carries major implications for investors.
What are they? Who stands to benefit the most? Should you sell your oil
stocks right now–or buy more?
In this month’s visit, I’ll give you my straight-from-the-shoulder answers
to these crucial questions. Hint: While the drop in energy prices will
undoubtedly help put the U.S. and other economies back on a stronger
growth track, we aren’t going to be pumping $2 gasoline again anytime
soon. Lay your investment plans accordingly!

A TASTIER MENU AT MICKEY D'S

I’m not talking about the food — although we’ve already seen some improvement in that area over the past year or so. McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) is finally making the right financial moves to turn its business around.

MCD’s new chairman, Jim Cantalupo, unveiled his recovery strategy at an analyst meeting Monday in New York. Besides tweaking the hamburger king’s marketing message (to appeal more to families with children and to young adults), MCD will slash its capital spending 40% and close underperforming restaurants.
