What to Expect When Shake Shack (SHAK) Reports Earnings Wednesday

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Shake Shack (SHAK) are trading up 0.57% to $65.67 in afternoon trading Tuesday, one day ahead of the company's first quarter earnings release after the market closes Wednesday.

Shake Shack is expected to post a loss of 3 cents per share on $33.91 million for the quarter, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.

Insight from TheStreet's Research Team:

Michael Khouw commented on Shake Shack in a recent post on ActionAlertsOPTIONS.com. During the most recent weekly roundup, this is what Khouw had to say about the stock:

What to Watch: While options are not listed on SHAK, it is still a name to watch as it was one of the hottest IPOs of 2015. The stock has taken off since the IPO and has not looked back. The recent selloff could be some profit-taking, as there was no news on SHAK, but a fundamental concern is the cost involved to sustain its business model, a common characteristic in restaurants stocks.
