McDonald's share price just plunged over 3% on massive volume. For now there is no clear catalyst for the move...
There is some inconformed desk chatter of a negative note from M Science in circulation with regard domestic comparable sales.

Of course, some have claimed that this weakness may be backlash from recent revelations about McDonald's employees saying they are encouraged to underfill cartons of fries.
'I worked at McDonald's and they taught me how to pinch the fry carton just right while putting the fries into them so that it looked full, but actually wasn't.
