Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG): Current price $78.28
On Tuesday, Proctor & Gamble, which makes Crest and Oral-B, announced that the open-access, scientific site World Dental Posters will now be sponsored by means of an educational grant from the company. World Dental Posters is an open access site that debuted in March, which provides scientific researchers the opportunity to upload their peer-reviewed posters at no cost for as long as they want.
Usually, peer-reviewed posters are presented at industry congresses, conferences, and meetings, or via subscription-based journals, but this site provides the authors with another channel to present their findings.
McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE:MCD): Current price $95.04
Analyst Robert Derrington at Wunderlich Securities said Tuesday in a note to clients that he is not particularly worried that McDonald’s limited time chicken wings offering will press on Buffalo Wild Wings due to the latter’s new pricing plan and enhanced cost outlook. McDonald’s will have Mighty Wings at some of its restaurants commencing on September 9 and available nationwide by September 24.
The wings should be gone from McDonald’s restaurants by the end of November. Derrington opined that Buffalo Wild Wings’ new wing-pricing strategy, which sells wings by portion instead of individually, will help guard the company’s costs from being affected by varying wing sizes and unstable commodity prices.
