Good times for McDonald's

NEW YORK (AP) - November 11, 2008

Lots of folks are buying Big Macs and Quarter Pounders, even as they tighten their belts.

McDonald's reports global same-store sales jumped 8.2 percent last month.

Sales are up more than 5 percent in the U.S.

Of course, the Dollar Menu is attracting worried consumers.

But even the Dollar Menu might not help in a Super Size recession.

One analyst says McDonald's profits could decline as more people buy cheaper items on the menu or cut back on extras like drinks.
