Investors are flocking to McDonaldโ€™s stock (MDC), considering it an appetizing choice in both challenging and prosperous times. According to Andy Barish, an equity analyst at Jefferies, McDonaldโ€™s remains a top choice in the fast-food restaurant sector, outperforming competitors like EAT, SHAK, WEN, and CMG. Barish rates the stock a โ€œbuyโ€ and sets an enticing price target of $330.

During a recent CNBC interview, Barish highlighted McDonaldโ€™s strategic plans for global expansion as a potential catalyst for significant financial growth in the coming years. Despite a summer sell-off due to GLP-1 drugs headwinds, he expressed confidence in the companyโ€™s revival, stating, โ€œThe uncertainty over the August-September period took a bit of wind out of the sales, but I think the company is regaining momentum and confidence in the investment community, who will probably use that as a buying opportunity should the stock weaken.โ€

Blaming the companyโ€™s recent market lag on the dynamic impact of GLP-1 drugs, he indicated that the situation is improving and that the investment community is gaining confidence in the companyโ€™s future prospects. Barish further projected growth for the entire restaurant industry despite potential caloric consumption challenges related to GLP-1 in the years to come.

Alongside McDonaldโ€™s, Jefferies also designates other fast-food restaurants like Bloominโ€™ Brands (BLMN), Dave & Busterโ€™s Entertainment (PLAY), and The Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) as โ€œbuys.โ€
