Whether furthering strategic partnerships in restaurant industry, market success of our first product collaboration with PepsiCo, or continued acclaim awarded to our products here in the U.S. and EU, we continue to lay a robust foundation for long-term growth.
Beyond Meat reiterated its future guidance
Despite weak results, Beyond Meat reiterated its full-year guidance for $560 million to $620 million in revenue that translates to a 21% to 33% annualised growth. Still, CFRA analyst Arun Sundaram says:
While we appreciate management’s long-term view, investors are going to be increasingly questioning BYND’s path to profitability, which isn’t good for the shares in a rising interest rate environment. Beyond Meat’s spending lifts the likelihood of a capital raise by the end of this year.
The stock is now down nearly 70% for the year.
