On May 15, 2014, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

On May 8, 2014, McDonald's Corp. (McDonald's) reported an increase of 1.2% in global comparable sales for the month of April 2014.

McDonald's Europe comparable sales rose just 0.3% in April 2014 as positive performance in the U.K. and France was mostly offset by negative results in Germany. Comparable sales in Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA) increased 2.9% in April 2014, with weakness in Japan partially offsetting the strong results from China and Australia.

For Q2 2014, the Company expects net income to decline sequentially from Q1 2014 by a range of $7 million to $10 million, resulting in a net loss of $15 million to $18 million.
