Beyond Meat Faces A Moment Of Truth As IPO Lockup Period Is Set To End

Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND), a producer of plant-based meat substitutes, has seen its stock price decline by about 13% over the last week and by roughly 30% over the last month, currently trading at around $110. There are multiple factors driving the decline. Firstly, analysts have been cutting their price targets for the company, on account of mounting competition in the plant-based meats space, with the likes of Impossible Foods, Kroger (“Simple Truth” brand), and Kellogg’s ( “Incogmeato”) doubling down on the market. Bernstein recently cut its target from $172 to $130, while Wells Fargo initiated coverage with a price target of $125 per share. Separately, the company’s post-IPO share lockup period expires on October 29, making 80% of its outstanding shares available for trade. This could cause early investors to book profits on the stock, which presently trades at over 4x its IPO price of $25 per share. Below, we take a look at the company’s performance over the last few years and its outlook over the next two years.
