Investors Want to be Up with the King: Burger King is Chart of the Day

Burger King is way up, while its primary competitor, McDonald's, is way down in 2014.

Burger King is way up, while its primary competitor, McDonald's, is way down in 2014. Share price gains of nearly 40 percent have been supported in part by its mega-transaction to acquire Canadian coffee king Tim Horton's, and that deal was just OK-ed by Canadian regulators. Plus, the PE-firm backed international burger chain is picking up boosts in the form of ratings increases from analysts, and Burger King's backers are deploying a nationwide chain of quality pros to build the best burger. With a big disparity between its, and McDonald's share gains, other restaurants may soon think LBO, too.
