What Investors Need to Know: McDonald's, FedEx vs. UPS, and a Shake-Up in Chinese Gaming

The following video is from Monday's Market Foolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Bill Barker and Tim Hanson, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In today's installment, the analysts discuss McDonald's release of some positive Dow-driving information, and how FedEx and UPS demand is going up but share prices aren't. We also hear about the coming Chinese crackdown on corruption in the junket business, and what it will do to gaming in Macau.

For many companies, successfully capitalizing on a booming Chinese economy is like winning the jackpot. That's the case for gaming company Las Vegas Sands, which made a big bet on Macau gaming about a decade ago that's paid off in spades. The company is now looking to spread its empire further, but will it be able to replicate its prior successes? Learn about all these opportunities, and the risks they pose, in our brand-new premium report on Las Vegas Sands.
