Via Bloomberg, here's what Wall Street is looking for:

  • Adjusted earnings per share: $0.03
  • Revenue: $42.8 million

Over the last 3 months, Shake Shack shares have been virtually unchanged after the stock had a wild ride shortly after its January market debut.

For the full-year, Shake Shack raised its revenue outlook to $171-$174 million from $161-$165 million. The company also increased its same-store sales outlook, now expecting full-year same-store sales to increase by mid- to high-single digits from low- to mid-single digits previously. Advertisement

Shake Shack also expects it will open 12 company-operated locations in 2015. The company had previously forecast that it would open 10 such locations this year. Shake Shack also said the company expects to open 12 locations per year in 2016 and beyond.
