Chipotle's Delicious, but Can the Stock Stay Hot?

Stock Tickers

CMG YUM MCD TSN

If you want to define "chipotle," as in Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), just take look a the company's stock price, which is up close 20% over the past three months and is up 50% year-to-date.

At a price-to-earnings ratio of 46, more than twice the valuation of Yum! Brands (YUM), these shares carry some eponymous heat.

I don't deny that Chipotle has built itself into a leading fast-casual restaurant that's posting strong growth and above-average margins. To the extent that the company now deserves a P/E that is almost 3-times that of McDonald's (MCD), I don't believe it does. Not to mention this leaves absolutely no margin for error in an environment where discretionary remains unstable.
