One of the best analysts on Wall Street told investors to buy Shake Shack because of its strong brand and large location growth potential.

"SHAK combines some of the best unit level metrics in the industry with one of the longest potential runways for growth," Buckingham Research's John Zolidis wrote in a note to clients Thursday.

He added, "We believe that the market is underestimating both near-term earnings but especially longer-term operating margin potential for this company."
