McDonald's raises quarterly dividendy by 15% to $1.16 per share

McDonald's board approved the company's 42nd consecutive annual dividend increase, raising the quarterly dividend 15% from $1.01 to $1.16 per share of common stock, payable on December 17, 2018 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 3, 2018. This brings the fourth quarter dividend payout to nearly $900 million. McDonald's has experienced increased capital allocation flexibility due to the evolution of the Company's business model and the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

McDonald's price target raised to $185 from $180 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jon Tower raised his price target for McDonald's to $185 from $180 as he believes it will see an acceleration in 2H18 U.S. same-store sales predicated on the combination of abating Experience of the Future headwinds and increased deals and evolved value messaging. The analyst sees this same-store sales growth further picking up steam in 2019 with the EOTF program flipping from a same-store sales headwind to a tailwind, the frequency and depth of value deals remaining high and McDonald's making a small, but powerful change to its delivery program. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Stephens has 'mixed' view of Tyson Foods deal for Keystone
After Tyson Food (TSN) announced an agreement to buy Keystone Foods from Marfrig for $2.16B in cash, Stephens analyst Farha Aslam said she has a "mixed" view of the deal, noting that the transaction does offer significant synergy opportunities, but that it also increase the company's exposure to McDonald's (MCD), which offers steady business but at thin margins. Still, Aslam reiterated her Overweight rating and $73 price target on Tyson shares.

Wendy's free cash flows and earnings to start normalizing, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst David Palmer kept his Sector Perform rating and $18 price target on Wendy's (WEN) ahead of its roadshow event on September 5th. The analyst notes that while he sees a path to FY19 and FY20 EPS growth of 20% on higher share repurchase assumptions, long term revenue growth should stay around 3%-4% and comps at 1%-2%. Palmer adds that Wendy's may be faced with growing competitive pressure and share losses to "delivery aggregators and improving execution by McDonald's (MCD), Panera, and Chick-Fil-A."
