McDonald’s, a Dow stock & Dividend Aristocrat, will stop reporting monthly same-store sales results as new CEO Steve Easterbrook works to revive growth.  The company will provide same-store sales for Jun with its Q2 earnings report, then cease providing the data monthly.  Results for May will be reported on Jun 8.  The company will continue providing quarterly comparable-store sales.  It is struggling to turn around its business after 11 straight months of declining global comparable-store sales.  Easterbrook announced a turnaround plan earlier this month that includes reorganizing the company’s leadership, cutting costs & returning cash to shareholders.  The change in sales reporting is meant to help MCD focus on its longer-term performance.  MCD, which has about 36K restaurants worldwide, said sales at stores open at least 13 months fell 0.6% in Apr & dropped 2.3% in the US.  The stock advanced 20¢.  If you would like to learn more about MCD, click on this link:
