Shake Shack looks like a risky stock buy despite the burger chain's better-than-expected quarterly results, some CNBC "Fast Money" traders said Wednesday.
The company posted earnings and revenue that beat analysts' projections as same-store sales rose 11.7 percent year-over-year. Shares jumped 10 percent in extended trading.
"I have a lot of trouble with the valuation," said trader Tim Seymour.
He called Jack in the Box a "much better story," adding that it is "improving and executing." Still, he noted the stock was not cheap at more than $90 per share.
In the restaurant chain space, trader Brian Kelly looked at El Pollo Loco. The stock has climbed 41 percent this year and closed Wednesday just above $28 per share. That company reports earnings Thursday afternoon.
But Shake Shack shares could have some value in the long term, trader Dan Nathan said. He noted that the chain has about 65 stores and room to grow.
