More "creative" price targets measure to the $250 area.
I have to question the judgment of those selling 3M, Domino's, Hasbro and Alphabet.
Please help me understand McDonald's.
I expect each day will be a trend unto itself, and some days will cancel out others.

Dunkin Details Real Money Pro($)

Following up on my Dunkin Brands (DNKN) comments from earlier, it seems things are a bit more challenging for the company given that MillerPulse is weighing in and saying that May same-store restaurant sales rose 0.6%. This is the first monthly improvement in a year and it also marks the first time in 16 months that same-store sales increased at quick-service restaurants as well as casual dining. Hmmmm.... Here's the thing, we know the restaurant industry has had an awful time over the last year and some of this "improvement" could simply be far easier year-over-year comparisons. I'd also note that one month does not make a trend, especially since May restaurant traffic fell more than 1%, with declines registered at both QSR and casual dining.
