The drawbacks of taking money meant for small businesses could outweigh the benefits

The Paycheck Protection Program, part of the CARES Act passed by the U.S. Congress in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent economic recession, is ostensibly meant for smaller mom-and-pop businesses, the kind whose entire staff is often living paycheck to paycheck.

According to the terms of the program, a business needs to have less than 500 employees in order to apply. However, there are a couple of exceptions to this. If a business with more than 500 employees meets the Small Business Administration (SBA) industry size standard (meaning it operates in a big enough industry to be small in

The company could reverse its recent stock decline

Shake Shack Inc. (SHAK) has recovery potential after its 37% decline over the past year.

The quick-service restaurant is launching new products, expanding its restaurant base and is aiming to reduce its costs to catalyze its financial performance.


Restaurant investment

The company opened 73 new restaurants globally in fiscal 2019. Some of them were in existing markets, but many of them were in areas where the business did not previously have a presence. This could increase the size of Shake Shack’s potential customer base and may reduce its reliance on a limited geographical area to

The company has a solid growth outlook

Even though quick-service restaurant chain Shake Shack Inc. (SHAK) has gained 75% over the last year, its strategy suggests it has further growth potential.

The company is diversifying internationally, ramping up its investments in online delivery and has a pipeline of new and increasingly innovative restaurants.


Innovative strategy

The company’s innovative strategy could differentiate it from rivals. For example, in the second quarter, Shake Shack added menu items that incorporate ingredients that can be bought from local sources, providing greater representation to the local community and reducing its environmental impact. This should resonate with customers

Earnings also surpass forecasts

Shares of Shake Shack Inc. (SHAK) moved 2.2% higher to $74.95 in after-hours trading on Monday after beating second-quarter earnings estimates by 4 cents. The New York-based fast-casual restaurant chain posted a profit of 29 cents per share, which was an 11.5% increase from the prior-year quarter.

Revenue grew 31.3% to $152.71 million, exceeding analysts' expectations by $2.94 million.

Investors were curious to see whether the strong positive momentum reported in first-quarter same-store sales growth was sporadic or an indication of ongoing expansion.

Driven by a jump in guest traffic along with a combination of higher pricing and sales mix,

The company's strategy could boost its returns

Plans to invest in the customer experience could boost premium burger company Shake Shack (SHAK)’s stock price performance.

To achieve this, it is increasing staff pay, while also focusing to an increasing extent on innovation. An expansion of its store estate could strengthen its financial prospects. Although the premium burger industry is becoming increasingly saturated in the U.S., the company plans to expand abroad – especially in Asia where it sees significant growth opportunities.

Having risen 36% in the last year versus a 4% gain for the S&P 500, the stock could offer investment potential.

Never chase stocks the guru investors have already made money with

Two stocks stand out as massively overpriced: Wingstop (WING) and Shake Shack (SHAK). Both are up over 30% since the first of the year on short-term performance only. Long-term, the margin of safety just isn't there right now.

Billionaire money managers Jim Simons (Trades, Portfolio) and Steven Cohen have made money in both stocks, with Simons retaining small positions in both. Cohen still holds a common share stake in Wingstop along with a call option for 200,000 shares.

Both Wingstop and Shake Shack are trading near 52-week highs. And, it’s almost a telltale sign that the market

The high-flying burger chain could have a long way to fall

There are certain brands, services and restaurants synonymous with an experience. They don’t just sell food or goods-- they sell a lifestyle. Shake Shack (SHAK) is one of these brands. Born in New York City’s idyllic and storybook Madison Square Park in 2004, Shake Shack has taken the nation by storm, offering an upscale fast-food experience. Unlike lower-end brands like McDonald's (MCD), a double cheeseburger at Shake Shack will run you almost $10. That certainly qualifies as “upscale” in the fast-dining world.

Since its initial public offering in early 2015, the stock has moved from $21 to $38, an almost

The prescient investor chose Shake Shack, a South Korean equity index and an aerospace company about to become part of Northrop Grumman

Legendary value investor Jeremy Grantham (Trades, Portfolio) has disclosed his three largest stock picks for the final months of the year.

Grantham bought shares of Orbital ATK Inc. (OA), an aerospace company that has been acquired by aerospace systems giant Northrop Grumman Corp. (NOC).

Grumman, whose stock this week reached a 52-week high of $356 a share, announced in September plans to buy Orbital for $9.2 billion. The European Commission authorized the union just this week.

Shake Shack is trading in a very tight range over the last two years, allowing me to take a second look

In April 2015, I warned investors of Shake Shack (SHAK) being a poor purchase for now. At the time, the stock was trading around $70 per share. Of course, short term it kept going up, breaching $90 before making a long descent back to the $30 range, which is where it’s been for the last couple of years.

Shake Shack is an incredible growth story and investors are still willing to pay up for future sales and earnings. That doesn’t make them wrong. What matters is that the company continues to grow profits, earnings and book value, which it will.

Company explores options for 'in-fridge' delivery service

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) is testing a new concept of delivering food and groceries right to your refrigerator by joining forces with August Home, a supplier of smart locks and smart home accessories.

The process begins once a customer orders groceries online which need to be delivered within a specified time. For safety measures, the customer needs to have August Home smart lock and security camera. The delivery person, called a Deliv driver, will arrive at the customer’s house and, if no one answers the door, will be able to enter after entering a one-time pass code into the

Full-year revenue grew 40.9% and same-store sales increased 4.2%.The company missed estimates on same-store sales however. Higher menu prices and favorable shifts in sales mix contributed to a 1.1% increase in average weekly sales.

Sales during the quarter were $70.9 million,

While still expensive, investors can scoop up the stock on recent pullback

Ever since its initial public offering in 2015, Shake Shack Inc. (SHAK) has been trading at a hefty premium compared to its peers in the restaurant industry. Investors have been eagerly waiting for the “next Chipotle” and have put high premiums on many stocks in the restaurant sector. Although Shake Shack has nice product offerings and is a good business, the stock’s valuation remains a bit too high.

Stocks with high valuations run the risk of crashing on the slightest bit of negative news, which is exactly what happened when Shake Shack released its quarterly report earlier this month.

McDonald's wins in a no-holds-barred burger battle

(Published Jan. 17 by Bob Ciura)

Growth stocks can be fun while they’re flying high. But as the saying goes, what goes up must come down.

When growth stocks soar to unsustainable levels beyond their earnings growth, it’s only a matter of time before they fall back to Earth, and the higher they rise the harder they crash.

It wasn’t too long ago that Shake Shack (SHAK) was a darling growth stock. After its initial public offering at $45 per share in early 2015, shares of the high-growth fast food restaurant soared as high as $92 by late May of

Company posted a strong 3rd quarter and updated its revenue guidance

New York-based Shake Shack (SHAK), the modern-day “roadside” burger, posted a strong third quarter with increase in revenues and 28.8% Shack-level operating profit margin.

During the quarter, it recorded its first $1 million sales day in domestic company-operated Shacks. Recently it came up with the Shack App to connect to customers on a large scale. In October, it launched an app for iPhone users.

Offering fresh and high quality products at reasonable prices has helped the chain carve a niche for itself with an array of products such as hot dogs, crinkle cut fries, burgers, frozen custard, etc. It has

With prices based more in reality than potential, now could be a good time to look at these stocks

More than a decade ago, most diners had two options when it came to going out. A fast food meal, with low prices but equally low-quality food, was one option. The other was a more formal sit-down place, where the food was decent but the time and money involved in getting a meal was prohibitive.

To fill the void, so-called “fast casual” dining exploded in popularity and increased 550% since 1999. Places like Panera (PNRA), Chipotle (CMG) and others grew remarkably faster than any other segment of the food service industry. Traditional fast food, like McDonald’s

Most economists agree a critical component has been missing in our economic recovery

“Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.” –​ Andy Grove, founder and CEO of Intel (INTC)

John Maynard Keynes introduced the concept of “animal spirits” as it relates to economic activity in his 1936 book "The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money." The term “animal spirits” is a way to describe what drives human behavior to consume, take risk and engage the instinctual proclivities that are natural to economic living.

This important piece of Keynes’ work came seven years after the Great Depression, and the concept is critical to understanding the economy and markets of today, eight

Despite the market rising to new heights, CMG is down 17 percent

The good news has arrived and Chipotle (CMG) is now trading under $400 per share. While I think it is 100% a buy at these levels, the future of the market worries me. There are really not many true bargains to be found, which is why I haven't been writing as much. That said, here's my take on Chipotle at the current price.
