Cashing In On The Way Out

On September 12 McDonald's SVP Jeff Stratton sold MCD shares valued at
$2,870,869.00. In addition he exercised his option on 23,172 shares of MCD
purchasing them at $56.64 a share. If he were to sell these exercised shares at
today's closing price he would net another $860,100.00.

Thompson will probably go sooner than later. Thompson's luck is running out with too many bad decisions or lack of understanding of the business.
He suffers from not making a decision when time now is of the essence.
Competition is cleaning his clock and he does not know what to do. He needs to lead or get out of the way.

The short term future of this management team may be determined by the weather. Investors, analysts, and those in the media fail to grasp the impact of a severe winter such as 2013/2014. If the winter ahead is mild it should have a positive impact on McDonald's SSS and will be viewed as evidence that a turn around has begun.
