Would you invest in Coca-Cola (KO) or McDonald's (MCD)?

Both companies have a strong global presence and pay a great dividend. However, I feel as though these stocks reach the same audience. Which company would you in invest in and why?

    MCD

    1. Looking at charts over several time periods MCD outperforms KO.

    2. On a world wide basis KO has a stronger competitor (PEP) than MCD.

    3. MCDs 5y dividend growth rate is about 3 times that of KO.

    That said, personally, I do not like either at the current price level. I would buy MCD if it drops below $57. KO below $44.

    Either is a good investment. I actually would prefer WMT though.
