Shake Shack's (SHAK) current capital earnings stand at EPS of $0.07 with a revenue of $50.09 mlm.

This stock has had its roller coaster ride, to say the least. Initially, the stock opened at $47/share and doubled to about $90/share by May 22, but had a crash by mid-July, returning back to $40/share. Subsequently, it hit an all-time-low this past February, trading for as low as $31.88/share and since then has fallen nearly 11% from February’s last IPO price.

Will it bounce back and make a turnaround?

Currently, its March 11 share stands at $41.50. Also, note that its short interest is about 15% of its total float, but over the past few weeks has been decreasing recognizably. Its current volatility stands at 68%, which is 5% higher than its volatility over the past month, and the stock is expected to move its price 11% in either direction.
