McDonald’s Vs. Wendy’s: Which Restaurant Stock Is The Better Pick?

MCD is trading at $213.53, closer to its 52-week high of $231.91 and far from its 52-week low of $124.23. It carries a Trade Grade of “B,” a Buy & Hold Grade of “B,” a Peer Grade of “D” and an Industry Rank of “B.” It places 18 out of 49 stocks in the Restaurants category and has an overall POWR Rating of “B” (for buy).

The Winner

While we certainly wouldn’t turn down a burgers-and-fries lunch from either establishment, it appears that MCD stock is the tastier offering for investors today. This is not to say that WEN has a good chance of taking on new strength as the year progresses, but for now MCD is the stronger choice of the two.

MCD shares were trading at $212.38 per share on Friday morning, down $1.15 (-0.54%). Year-to-date, MCD has declined -1.03%, versus a 2.45% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
