Recent News & Updates
Beyond Meat's (NASDAQ:BYND) Lack of Growth Equals More Short-Term Pain
Three years after its IPO debut, Beyond Meat, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: BYND) shares are now trading well below the starting price, with year-to-date loss extending beyond 50%. With looming cash flow burn concerns and geopolitical issues threatening the supply chain, short interest has ballooned over 40%.
Beyond Meat: Assessing The Likelihood As A Takeover Target
Beyond Meat has spearheaded the development of the plant-based meat market and has advanced to become a recognized brand.

We rate Beyond Meat as a sell.
