McDonald's Corporation ($MCD) is about as American as a company can get. It ticks all the boxes: built by hard work, innovation, and a little bit of skullduggery, it is unassuming in its appeal, priced right, and, super-sized. Love it or hate it, McDonald’s has become an American economic icon and, if you make a left turn at the next light, you’ll probably run into one.
