Food stocks GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB) and Shake Shak (NYSE:SHAK) are serving up tantalizing technical treats on the price charts. But for bullish investors, I suggest reining in the enthusiasm a bit and playing it safe.Source: Rik Panganiban via FlickrTechnically speaking, you could say that both GRUB and SHAK stock have something for every type of investor. That sounds agreeable, but investing in these food stocks isn't that simple …At the end of the day, everyone realizes there are bulls and bears in the market. However, there's also value, growth, momentum and income investing. In fact, there's more than a few variations and cross-contaminated styles to consider … and that's not just food stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis goes for the whole enchilada of publicly traded companies out there. And the way I see these two food stocks right now, GRUB stock is being served up as a contrarian, deep-value purchase, while SHAK looks like an All-American classic price pattern worth biting into. Food Stocks Buy 1: GrubHub (GRUB)The first of our pair of food stocks to buy is GrubHub. Shares of the food ordering and web-based delivery service platform are not exactly the flavor of the day on Wall Street. But don't let that dissuade you -- GRUB stock is a buy! * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Give Back 2019 Gains With decent sales prospects of nearly 25% projected for the next five years, mid-cap pricing of just $6.15 billion and its recognizable name in this emerging industry trend, GRUB stock is one for contrarians to sink their teeth into.Technically, shares of this food stock look super tasty on the price chart as well!Currently, shares of GRUB are just coming off a confirmed variation of a four-month-long double-bottom pattern. With the formation finding support from the 62% retracement level and stochastics readying to cross from an oversold position, this food stock is a buy today.One caveat with buying GrubHub shares are earnings. The company's next quarterly confessional is slated for Thursday evening. Gap risk is heightened for a food stock like GRUB, which has a history of volatile post-report reactions and isn't a tendency to take lightly.As much, while this strategist believes the odds favor a bullish earnings event, nibbling on a smaller size order of GRUB stock makes sense. Alternatively, I'd recommend investors consider using the options market to gain long delta exposure with absolute, predetermined risk. Food Stocks Buy 2: Shake Shack (SHAK)It's a fact, even the best stocks go through corrective phases. And during SHAK stock's fairly short time as a publicly traded company, shares have witnessed a couple of larger periods of what some might call unruly price behavior. Still, these periods do act to serve up bullish platforms for higher prices like the correct cup-shaped base forming in this food stock since mid-2018.But that's not all this food stock is offering today's bullish investors.Currently SHAK stock is putting together an equally classic-looking tight handle consolidation that centered on the 62% retracement level. This is akin to the cherry on top of the sundae and sets this food stock up for a breakout entry:For investors interested in taking a bite out of this classic bullish pattern, a higher and above-average volume breakout 10 cents above the handle's high of $60.94 is the ideal entry point. Using a stop-loss of 7% to 8% in SHAK stock also works with buying this kind of setup. As with our other food stocks, earnings are just around the corner on May 2. * 7 Red-Hot E-Commerce Stocks to Consider Similarly, SHAK stock is also known for its volatile reactions.

Sometimes, when a company goes public, there's a lot of hype surrounding that company, so the stock explodes higher following the initial public offering, or IPO. Then, that hype cools down, reality settles in, and the stock falls. * 10 Dividend Stocks to Dump and One to Embrace Source: Landscape Photo This pop-and-drop IPO dynamic happens time and time again. See GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Fitbit (NYSE:FIT), or Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK). Although that pattern does tend to repeat itself often, it isn't what's happening with shares of YETI (NYSE:YETI). The outdoors consumer products brand went public at $18 per share in late 2018. The IPO wasn't a huge success. Shares actually traded down on their first day on Wall Street. But YETI stock has been nothing but a huge success ever since, as back-to-back strong earnings reports have powered shares to above $30 today.This rally, unlike post-IPO rallies for peer outdoors consumer products brands GoPro and Fitbit, is for real. Yeti is a stable and healthy brand in a stable and healthy outdoors recreation market, with stable and healthy margins -- and stable and healthy go-forward growth catalysts. In other words, the whole growth narrative here is stable and healthy.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAt $30, stable and healthy is partially priced into YETI stock -- but not fully. Indeed, given the company's long-term growth potential, YETI stock isn't fully valued until the mid-to-upper $30's.Given this, I think the post-IPO rally in YETI stock has legs. This stock should close the year closer to $40 than $30. Stable & Healthy Is YETI's Calling CardIn short, YETI stock is supported by healthy and stable go-forward growth fundamentals, which support further gains in the stock.Let's look at the numbers. Depending on who you ask, the outdoors recreation market in the U.S. (including apparel, gear, and activities) measures somewhere north of $300 billion, and likely closer to $600 billion-plus. That market is growing anywhere between 5% and 10% per year, supported by a rise in the experience economy, active lifestyles and travel. Within that broad outdoors market, products account for roughly $120 billion in annual revenue. Revenues there are presumably rising at a healthy, high-single-digit growth rate, too.Within that industry, YETI is a small (less than $1 billion in revenues projected for 2019), but important (people need coolers and drink ware) and stable player (YETI is top dog in the cooler niche). From this perspective alone, assuming secular trends continue to power healthy revenue growth across the whole outdoors category for the foreseeable future, YETI projects as a healthy grower for the next several years, too.Further, YETI is launching new products to extend beyond its niche, pushing hard on the international front, and rapidly expanding its DTC business. All those initiatives imply potential market share expansion and addressable market growth.In other words, not only does YETI project as a healthy and stable grower for the next several years, but several go-forward catalysts imply that 10%-plus revenue growth is achievable for this company. If the company can grow at that rate, and margins improve with scale, then the rally in YETI stock is far from over. The Valuation Remains AttractiveEarnings next year are projected at roughly $1 per share. YETI stock changes hands at around $30. Thus, this stock trades at around 30 times forward earnings. That's a big multiple. The average consumer discretionary retail stock trades at 25 times forward earnings.But, YETI isn't your average consumer discretionary stock. Thanks to strong market positioning, potential share expansion catalysts and healthy tailwinds across the whole outdoors industry, YETI has clear visibility to 10%-plus revenue growth over the next several years. Meanwhile, the company's margin profile is depressed relative to other premium players, and 10%-plus revenue growth should allow for adequate opex leverage to close this gap.As such, YETI projects as a 10%-plus revenue grower over the next few years with healthy margin drivers. That combination leads me to believe that this company can do about $2.50 in earnings per share by 2025. Based on a sector-average 25 forward multiple, that implies a reasonable 2025 price target for YETI stock of over $60. Discounted back by 10% per year, that equates to a 2019 price target in the upper $30's. Bottom Line on YETI Stock * 10 Stocks That Are Screaming Buys Right Now Unlike other post-IPO rallies, this post-IPO rally in YETI stock has legs, mostly because the valuation remains reasonable and the fundamentals remain favorable. So long as both of those things remain true, the post-IPO rally in YETI stock will continue.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long YETI.

NEW YORK, March 29, 2019 -- In new independent research reports released early this morning, Market Source Research released its latest key findings for all current investors,.
In the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry, there are two recurring themes. First, low prices and high convenience always wins. Second, McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) is consistently one step ahead of the QSR competition in terms of delivering the lowest prices and the highest convenience. That's what keeps MCD stock one of the great QSR buys.Source: Shutterstock McDonald's consistently has outperformed over the past five years. During that stretch, MCD stock has risen nearly 100%. The S&P 500 is up just 50% over the same time frame.Meanwhile, QSR peers Yum (NYSE:YUM), Jack in the Box (NASDAQ:JACK), Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), and Habit (NASDAQ:HABT) have all under-performed relative to MCD stock, too.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis over-performance from MCD stock will continue for the foreseeable future. This is largely because McDonald's remains one step ahead of the QSR competition in terms of delivering the lowest prices and highest convenience to consumers. * 7 Reasons to Buy Housing Stocks in 2019 Specifically, McDonald's recent acquisition of decision technology firm Dynamic Yield puts the QSR chain ahead of the competition when it comes to integrating technology and data into brick-and-mortar operations.This integration will only increase consumer convenience by personalizing and digitizing the consumer experience. It also has the potential to lower costs through cutting labor expenses.As such, technology and data will power a bright future for McDonald's. That future will be one wherein the company will continue to dominate on price and convenience, and where MCD stock will continue to out-perform. Price and Convenience Always WinWhen it comes to the QSR industry, only two things truly matter at the end of the day: price and convenience.Just think about what a QSR is supposed to do. As the name implies, a QSR is supposed to give consumers quick food at reasonable prices. When consumers go to a QSR, their priorities are minimizing cost and maximizing convenience.Sure, consumers may also want the meal to be healthy, but if healthy were the priority, the consumer would cook at home. Consumers may also want the meal to be very tasty, but if quality were the priority and cost weren't an issue, the consumer would eat at a fancy restaurant.As such, the priorities for a consumer going to a QSR are largely restricted to price and convenience. So long as prices are low, and convenience is high, the consumer's highest priority needs are being met. That consumer is therefore likely to return when they are next seeking a low-cost, high-convenience meal or snack.Because of this, the two things that matter most in the QSR industry are price and convenience. If a QSR dominates on price and convenience, then that QSR will continue to see customer and sales growth. McDonald's Always Is One Step AheadWhen it comes to price and convenience, McDonald's has no peer in the QSR industry. This is mostly because everything McDonald's does enhances the customer value prop through lowering prices and/or elevating convenience. Importantly, McDonald's is also always one step ahead of the competition.Example 1: in 2015, McDonald's rolled out All-Day Breakfast. This was a novel breakthrough in the QSR industry that drove huge traffic growth, mostly because it increased consumer convenience (consumers could now order a McMuffin at any time of the day). Now, everyone has replicated the All-Day Breakfast initiative.Example 2: once everyone replicated the All-Day Breakfast initiative, McDonald's pivoted to revamping its menu to include fresher ingredients and healthier options. The revamp drove huge traffic growth, mostly because it increased convenience (healthier food was now available in a drive-thru setting) and lowered prices (healthier food was now being offered at McDonald's prices). Since that revamp, mostly everyone in the QSR space has adopted broad healthy menu makeovers.The next leg in this "one step ahead" growth narrative will come from technology and data integration. Specifically, McDonald's recently acquired decision technology firm Dynamic Yield. The plan? Take Dynamic Yield's decision technology and data analytics, and integrate it into McDonald's brick-and-mortar locations worldwide. That integration includes digital, dynamic, and data-driven ordering kiosks and drive-thru menu displays, which should create a more personalized customer experience.The result? Increased consumer convenience and lower prices. Data-driven digital ordering kiosks will make the checkout experience quicker, easier, and overall better. Further, if data-driven digital ordering kiosks are that good, then they will inevitably phase out human cashiers. That will lower labor expenses, and allow McDonald's to pass those cost savings onto consumers through lower prices. Bottom Line on MCD StockIn the QSR industry, price and convenience are most important. Thus, the QSR chain that dominates on price and convenience will be the winning QSR chain.Over the past several years, that winning QSR chain has been McDonald's, thanks to things like All-Day Breakfast and a menu revamp. McDonald's will remain that winning chain for the next several years, too, thanks to the company pioneering a new era of technology-integrated and data-driven QSR operations.Because of this, MCD stock projects as a winner for the foreseeable future. Valuation friction will rear its ugly head from time to time. But, in the big picture, the stock will remain on a healthy long term uptrend.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long MCD.
