Beyond Meat.


I'm guessing this meatless stock is going to be a hit. BYND ipo tomorrow.

Anybody dabbling...or tasting?

Just saw this.

Our oldest daughter has been a vegetarian for 26 years (very close to being a vegan), youngest daughter has been a vegetarian for 16 years.

Our oldest daughters husband will not eat meat out of respect for her. He eats the Beyond products and serves them when I'm there. Except for texture they are as close to animal meat as possible. They're so close to meat that our daughters will not eat them, they go with Morning Star.

I highly recommend Beyond to anyone who is considering them.

Mark, buy.

Buy and hold. This is the future. As the boomers die off, they're being replaced with vegetarians who recognize the ecological impacts of beef farming. You're going to see this more and more. Hell, White Castle and Burger King are carrying Beyond products.

So everyone reading this knows, Beyond has yet to have a profitable year. I think this will change.

Bro, I am no Boomer. I choke down salads but eat bacon cheeseburgers like it's my job, hold the lettuce and toss on another Patty...

I hope beef ranches go outta business... I'll be buying cattle for pennies on the dollar and you guys can keep the rabbit food.

Re: Beyond Meat.


It'll get to where it will taste the same or better, have the same texture and be cheaper not to mention our meat supply chain in the United States has been opened up to a bunch of other countries which makes it even more likely to get adulterated meat.

Re: Beyond Meat.


My wife makes a killer salad. It was huge and tasty. Mine and hers were slightly different according to our tastes.

And a big prime steak.

Never good to buy an IPO. Generally speaking that is.

Get in early, get out just as fast. Make the money when the thing opens up.

Very true, but I have a hunch this one is going to be home run. Something in the air.

....then again, I'll probably be wrong.

This thing is going to open above the IPO price, and the media will yap all day about the percentage pop that we never could have played (unless we were on the friends and family list).

If you feel this hunch buy it and hold it. Donít touch it for a long time. I had the same hunch about apple 12 years ago before the iPhone came out. Havenít ever touched it.

Re: Beyond Meat.


I honestly believe one day we are going to look back and say "we used to eat animals" like its the worst thing. Like barbarians

I wonder if they can capture the necessities of minerals and fats we need without the harmful elements. Perfect dietary supplements in the form of pills would alter so much. I bet half of what we eat is out of mere gratification.

It's interesting... used to love eating steak out at your average restaurant... then I ate one at a restaurant that really knew how to make one...

Think I'll stick with that rather than the substitute unless they can actually recreate it...


If I have to imagine it tastes like meat, I'd rather just eat the meat... probably why tofu-turkey never took off...
