      Beyond Meat Inc. (BYND) stock Recovers in the Pre Market. Here’s why? - Stocks Telegraph

      Beyond Meat Inc. (BYND) stock entered green in the pre-market as it gained 5% at $66.85, on December 14. The stock had been in the red since news of a canceled planned test of its product by Taco Bell emerged on December 11.

      In Monday’s regular trading session, the stock was still in the red as it lost 1.69% at $63.42. The situation reversed when the after-market session began, as BYND stock gained $4.03.

      BYND stock and its Recovery

      Taco Bell has been working with BYND for the launch of a vegan alternative of its crane Asada grilled meat. On December 10, news emerged that Taco Bell canceled a scheduled test of BYND’s grilled-meat substitute. As per the details, Taco Bell was not satisfied by the company’s previously provided samples of the product in October. Hence, Taco Bell canceled the test. As a result, the stock entered a downtrend, which continued into Monday’s regular session.

      In the aftermarket session on Monday, the stock finally recovered and began trading in green. This recovery can also be attributed to speculations about the early launch of BYND’s McPlant. According to news, Piper Sandler’s contacts expect BYND’s McPlant’s launch late in the first quarter of 2022.
