McDonald's (NYSE:MCDhas reported a strong performance in its last earnings report.

The companies financials continue to remain solid with a strong balance sheet and a respectable free cash flow. The earnings growth should be strengthened by a $20 billion share buyback program to be executed throughout 2016, following a dividend/buyback of $9 billion worth in 2015.

As if these aren't enough to convince investors, the McDonald's stock currently has a dividend yield of over 3%, one single number which could attract long term income investors in droves.
