Better Buy: McDonald's vs. Starbucks

Better Buy: McDonald's vs. Starbucks

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) and Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) are on different growth paths today. The fast-food companies compete over breakfast beverages and snacks, and both are targeting the drive-thru and delivery channels right now. Starbucks' early February earnings announcement showed decelerating sales growth, with comparable-store sales (comps) rising 5%, compared with the prior quarter's 7% increase.
