Let’s dive into that report below to see what’s dragging down shares of SHAK stock today!

  • Shake Shack’s outlook for the first quarter of 2021 is behind the poor response from investors today.
  • The company is looking for revenue to range from $196 million to $201.4 million.
  • That’s not stacking up well compared to Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $210.87 million for the period.
  • Unfortunately, this is dragging down an otherwise solid earnings report from Shake Shack.
  • That includes its adjusted losses per share of 11 cents coming in above analysts’ estimate of -17 cents.
  • The company’s revenue of $203.26 million also just scraps past Wall Street’s estimate of $203.25 million.

Randy Garutti, CEO of Shake Shack, had the following to say in the company’s Q4 2021 earnings report.

“We believe that Shake Shack is positioned to manage through ongoing headwinds. With our largest development schedule ever and a healthy balance sheet to support continued investments, we believe we will exit 2022 stronger than where we started and are incredibly excited for this next chapter in the Shake Shack story.”
