Nasty Reversal On McDonald’s Corp (MCD) Seals Bearish Fate. Note This Chart…

McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) just put in a major top. Not only is trading above a 27 P/E, historically insane, but McDonald’s Corp opened higher today and sold hard on volume. The jump this morning came after Cowen upgraded the fast food company and placed a $180 price target. Let’s think about this for a second. In October 2016, McDonald’s Corp traded at $110.00. Today it hit a high of $155.28. That is a whopping percentage gain of 41% in 8 months.

 

Think about that, after a 41% gain, now an analyst upgrades it? That is some sort of wacky joke. This is how tops are created. The reversal signals institutions are selling into the upgrade volume. I have a downside target on McDonald’s Corporation at $134.25. This would be about a 50% retrace of the 8 month up move. Hold on and enjoy the ride. I am loving the short trade.
