How much McDonald invests in net lease commercial real estate?

McDonald’s Corp. is once again facing pressure to spin off its real estate holdings, as shareholder and hedge fund manager Larry Robbins claims the move could unlock $20 billion in value. McDonald’s owns 70 percent of its restaurant buildings and 45 percent of the land those buildings are built on at a time when net-leased real estate is highly prized.


The market reacted positively to Robbins’ suggestion, as the company’s shares rose by almost 2 percent on Monday, according to The Street.

As a long-term investor, you don’t want to trade short-term cash for long-term competitive advantage. This is exactly what the real estate assets are to McDonald’s.
