What to expect when McDonald’s (MCD) reports Q4 2019 earnings

McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE: MCD) is slated to report fourth quarter 2019 earnings results on Wednesday, January 29, before the market opens. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $1.96 per share while revenue is expected to rise by 2% to $5.30 billion.

This will be the first earnings report since Chris Kempczinski took over as CEO after the abrupt exit of Steve Easterbrook. It will be worth watching if any new strategies or changes are revealed. The strength in comparable sales can be expected to continue this quarter as well.

The company’s investments in store development, delivery services and menu innovations are likely to help boost results and drive growth going forward. However, the fast food chain faces tough competition from the increasing number of delivery services that are now available in the market.
