The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Shares of McDonald's finished up today after it was reported that same-store sales rose 2.6% in May. Results were particularly strong in the U.S. and Europe. Despite the good numbers, our analysts are not excited about McDonald's, the stock. In this installment of MarketFoolery, they analyze the key core strength McDonald's is missing, which companies have it, and why they believe Chipotle , Panera , and Buffalo Wild Wings are a smarter bet for most investors.

But in the case of Panera Bread, there's reason to believe that the best is still yet to come. The stock has been on an absolute tear over the past five years, and you're invited to find out why -- and what else there is to look forward to -- in The Motley Fool's brand-new premium report on Panera.
