Analysts expect Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to post adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $1.58 in 1Q18, which represents a fall of 1.3% from $1.60 in 1Q17. Analysts expect the decline in Chipotle’s EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin to offset the effects of revenue growth and a lower effective tax rate to post a decline in Chipotle’s 1Q18 EPS. Analysts expect Chipotle’s EBIT margins to fall from 6.8% in 1Q17 to 5.6% in 1Q18.
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) owns and operate all its restaurants, so sales from all restaurants constitute the company’s revenue. For 1Q18, analysts expect Chipotle to post revenue of $1.15 billion, which represents a rise of 7.3% from $1.07 billion in 1Q17. The revenue growth is expected to be driven by the addition of new restaurants and positive SSSG (same-store sales growth). By the end of 3Q17, Chipotle operated 2,363 restaurants, compared to 2,291 in 1Q17.
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is scheduled to post its 1Q18 earnings after the market closes on April 25. As of April 13, Chipotle was trading at $318.36, which represents growth of 4.6% since the announcement of its 4Q17 earnings on February 6, 2018.

As of March 19, 2018, Shake Shack (SHAK) was trading at $41.08. On the same day, analysts were expecting the company’s stock price to reach $42.10 in the next 12 months, which represents a return potential of 2.5%. The 2018 revenue guidance provided by Shake Shack’s management during its 4Q17 earnings call was lower than analysts’ expectations, which appears to have compelled them to lower their target price.
As Shake Shack (SHAK) is still in the growth phase of its business cycle, expenses will likely be on the higher side and earnings cannot be considered for valuation. The forward EV-to-sales ratio is calculated by dividing the enterprise value with analysts’ sales estimates for the next four quarters. Although the stock price of Shake Shack has increased since the beginning of 2017, the valuation multiple has declined as investors have increased their sales estimates for the next four quarters.
In 2017, Shake Shack (SHAK) posted an EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin of 9.7% compared to 10.4% in 2016. Shake Shack’s EBIT margins declined due to an increase in labor and related expenses, other operating expenses, and depreciation expenses. Compared to 2016, Shake Shack’s labor and related expenses increased from 25.3% to 26.5% due to the opening of 26 new company-owned restaurants (which will incur higher labor expenses in the first few months of operations), an increase in labor wages, and investments in management teams to support growth.
Analysts are expecting Shake Shack (SHAK) to post revenue of $449.14 million in 2018, which represents growth of 25.2% from $358.8 million in 2017. The revenue growth is expected to be driven by the addition of new restaurants. Shake Shack’s management expects its revenue in 2018 to be in the range of $444 million to $448 million, which represents revenue growth in the range of 23.7%–24.9% from $358.8 million in 2017.
As of the end of 2017, Shake Shack (SHAK) operates 159 restaurants including 90 company-owned restaurants, ten domestic franchised restaurants, and 59 international franchised restaurants.
