McDonald's November Sales Decline in the United States

McDonald's Corp.'s global same-store sales rose 0.5% in November, with European restaurants making up for weakness in the U.S. and Japan. In the U.S., sales trailed estimates, with same-restaurant sales sliding 0.8 percent, widely missing the 0.3 percent gain expected on average. The world's largest hamburger chain had previously signaled that weakness would continue in the fourth quarter amid stiff competition and halting global economic growth. Story.
