MCD: McDonald’s reported 1Q12 EPS of $1.23 versus $1.23 and global same-store sales of 7.3%.  Overall, we thought the quarter was not great but not terrible.  We believe that the market was pricing in a worse quarter than what transpired; during the first quarter of the calendar year, MCD traded down 2% versus the 10% gain that the S&P 500 posted.
