Monday was somewhat of a muted day on Wall Street as investors waited to hear the details of Treasury Secretary Geithner's plan for the rest of the TARP money, and as the Senate debated President Obama's economic stimulus plan ahead of the vote Tuesday.

Amidst the uncertainty, these are the latest stock ideas from BloggingStocks and from around the web:

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) is a cash flow and profit machine, says Bill Martin. The recent quarterly earnings report only reiterated McDonald's strong positioning , especially during the economic slowdown, which doesn't seem to be much of a headwind. MCD even announced expansion plans, mostly overseas -- yes, even during these times. Other than the strong dollar, no other headwinds seem to affect it operationally and the stock is still a buy.
