RBC Capital analyst David Palmer expects McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) to make adjustments to its value marketing soon and are bumping 2018 U.S SSS estimates 50pb higher.

Palmer said while the long-term efficacy of the $1, $2, $3 menu remains in questions, they believe improvement will continue with food, asset, and convenience upgrades.

The firm maintained an Outperform rating and price target of $170 on MCD.

SI Note: Palmer was the analyst that cut estimates on MCD recently related to problems with the new value menu, sending the stock down sharply.
