Alphabet’s ad revenue growth slows down in the 1st quarter and $70 billion gets shaved off the company’s market cap. General Electric shares rise after the company loses less money than expected. McDonald’s and Texas Roadhouse post similar same-store sales growth in their respective 1st quarters, but only McDonald’s sees its stock rise. MFAM Funds portfolio manager Bill Barker analyzes those stories and shares why McDonald’s decisions around bacon and donut fries paid off. Plus, we preview our next “Apropos Of Nothing” episode!
