Best Low Stress Stock Winner over 15 Years

How you doin'?

Who cares about 20% pullbacks, who cares about recessions, well not this stock!

The Stock : MacDonald's (MCD)

A great performer, WOW! Selling high carb and sugar burgers to the masses is a real winner. However with Price to Sales at 4.2 it should not attract new money. In fact profit taking should be considered.

Look at the low volatility of MCD versus the NYSE Index, this stock should be considered when the wider stock market sinks greater than 20%.

Wyckoff investors love fantastic relative strength and MCD is a winner here. One to watch if 2016/17 is a bad year for stocks. And they even pay a dividend!
