Krispy Kreme Inc (NASDAQ:DNUT) stock is 21.9% higher at $15.17 at last glance, following news that the company will sell its donuts in McDonald's (MCD) restaurants in the U.S. by the end of 2026. This new partnership will double Krispy Kreme's current distribution.

Elsewhere, there's room for analyst sentiment to unwind, considering six of eight in coverage rate DNUT a tepid "hold." What's more the 12.8 million shares sold short account for 17.2% of the equity's available float. 

After bouncing from their lowest mark since November, the shares earlier hit their highest level since July 2023. Krispy Kreme stock is pacing for its best single-session percentage gain on record, though it remains 1.9% lower for 2024.
