If you enjoy a Big Mac, then there is another reason to be excited about the company which produces them. McDonald's Corporation (NYSE:MCD) each quarter rewards investors in its stock with a hefty dividend payment. And this quarter is no different.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) is up first, reporting its fiscal Q1 earnings after the bell Thursday. On Friday, before the market opens, General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) and McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD) will share their Q3 results.
