Chipotle and Shake Shack: How EPS Growth Prospects Stack Up

For 2019, analysts are projecting Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to post adjusted EPS of $13.06, which represents a rise of 44.2% from $9.06 in 2018. The revenue growth, expansion of EBIT margin, and lower effective tax rate are likely to drive the company’s EPS in 2019. However, increased interest expenses could offset some of the increase in the company’s EPS.
