Valuing Shake Shack stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Shake Shack's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Shake Shack's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 101x. In other words, Shake Shack shares trade at around 101x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Shake Shack's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.55. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Shake Shack's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Shake Shack's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$34.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Shake Shack's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 7.4 million Shake Shack shares held short by investors – that's known as Shake Shack's "short interest". This figure is 7.7% down from 8.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Shake Shack shares can be evaluated.
Shake Shack's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Shake Shack shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Shake Shack shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Shake Shack's SIR currently stands at 6.61. In other words for every 100,000 Shake Shack shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6610 shares are currently held short.
However Shake Shack's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Shake Shack shares, or, against the total number of tradable Shake Shack shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Shake Shack's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Shake Shack shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.2375% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Shake Shack shares, roughly 238 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Shake Shack.

We're not expecting Shake Shack to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Shake Shack's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.01 up to $93.995. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Shake Shack's is 1.7044. This would suggest that Shake Shack's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
