The latest incident of MCD (Mad Cow Disease) will not be any problem in the stock market, not even for a while. In other words, the MCD incident will be forgotten by traders very soon. What will be changed by MCD perhaps will be what American people eat. Patriotic Americans will eat more beef products in 2004 than they ever did. We will see more innovative beef products to meet the hiking demands. Domestic beef related stocks including restaurants are already at very attractive value without any weakness due to MCD. So as a short summary or memo (mark my words) in the day when the latest domestic MCD incident was discovered, let's buy MCD dip , if there is any. Do not forget to buy your favorite beef products as usual or even more. This is your duty as a patriot. Thank you. As for MCD wackos, take a hike and go sleepless with your MCD worries.
