McDonald's (MCD): A Growth Stock with Emerging Markets Exposure

With the US economy stagnating, I have been researching multinationals who could sustainably grow abroad like they have domestically. McDonald's meets the mold.

The company offers a 2.83% dividend yield and is not overvalued given its size. It has low volatility, which makes it a safe investment in what could potentially be a double dip. I expect sales to increase roughly by 12.7% in 2011 and 5% more the following year.
