Goldman Sachs downgraded McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) from Conviction Buy to Buy with a price target of $110 (down from $114), saying they see more attractive opportunities elsewhere. Also, Goldman said there is little visibility towards near-term catalysts.

Goldman is maintaining a Buy rating as the company is executing extremely well and they expect ongoing share gains to continue.

Goldman lowered 2012-2014 EPS estimates to $5.76/$6.52/$7.33 from $5.84/$6.62/$7.44 primarily to reflect more conservative margin assumptions given recent management commentary.
