Somebody gets it! I mean, they could have mentioned index fund investing as an alternative, but at least they're taking down the people who think they'll get rich by buying a ton of the hottest new stock.

I heard about this in passing and was like "A Shake Shack IPO?  Really?"

Don't get me wrong, Shake Shack is delicious and a must-hit when I'm in New York and I guess an IPO means it's trying to go national (hopefully it won't turn to shit like Five Guys did).

It would be ok if it weren't for the "don't ever buy single stocks" bromide.

I've been investing for nearly 30-years.

For the past couple of weeks, I've been seeing story after story after story about "Shake Shack."

My only question is "What the HELL is "Shake Shack?"  Never seen it, never heard of it.

A bit of research tells me its a burger and shake joint.

Can anyone tell me why a burger and shake joint would cause hysteria on Wall Street?

If it was 1965, sure, I could see the hysteria (e.g. McDonalds), but I can't imagine why anyone would get excited about (yet another) burger, fry, and shake joint in 2015.

What is so exciting about this burger and shake joint?
