Pokemon 25th Anniversary & McDonald’s Happy Meals | McDonald’s Stock A Buy Or Hold?!

Gotta catch them all – Pokemon!  Yes, the nostalgia is real and Pokemon is now ringing in the 25th Anniversary of the brand.  I used to own the Blue version and definitely had a stellar collection of the base set Pokemon cards, which is no where to be found now (no, I didn’t have a Charizard, but I did have plenty of 1st Edition holos!).

Pokemon Cards 25th Anniversary

Pokemon & McDonald’s partnered up for the limited edition 25-card set for the Happy Meal. Not only are the price and value of Pokemon cards going through the roof, but now – Happy Meal sales stand to reach a similar height. The argument/discussion today begs the question, is McDonald’s (MCD) a stock to buy now with this Pokemon venture or do the metrics want to keep you on the sideline?

Pokemon 25th anniversary & McDonald’s

Pokemon and McDonald’s have teamed up together to celebrate their 25th anniversary, which right now – includes the highly valued holo Pikachu. This is a perfect storm, in my opinion. McDonald’s business model is already very slick and customer demand is always there. Then, you add the Pokemon craze that has been sky rocketing over the last 12 months, and you now have a rocket ship exploding at the moment.

Then, you add in McDonald’s incredible mobile application, and the orders for the Happy Meal, that contains the 3 pack of Pokemon Cards, literally surges through the roof.  In fact, MANY locations near us have been completely sold out.  Period.

Therefore, with Pokemon celebrating their 25th anniversary with McDonald’s, one has to expect/anticipate record sales for their Happy Meal – something like this reminds me of when McDonald’s teamed up with TY for the Little Beanie Babies – yes, you remember that craze!

Simply looking at the title of this article bodes well for McDonald’s (MCD) investors, one of our Top 5 Foundation Dividend Stocks.  McDonald’s is a dividend aristocrat, as well, increasing that dividend for 25+ years. Therefore, with all this craze & surge from Pokemon cards and the impact on McDonald’s, how does McDonald’s look like, as a stock to buy, right now?
