Mizuho Securities analyst John Baumgartner initiates coverage on Beyond Meat Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $59.00.

The analyst comments "We initiate coverage of Beyond Meat, Inc. (BYND) with a Neutral rating and $59 price target. BYND shares have exhibited extreme volatility since May 2019's initial public offering (price range $61-$235), as investors size the market for plant-based meat alternatives (PBM). We believe long-term expectations are too high, and high-beta equities appear poised for near-term market resistance. Retail money flow has waned, Street expectations are resetting lower, and short interest is 35% of the float; a tough setup to short ahead of potential 2022 pipeline fills (foodservice and international) which reduce revenue risk. Net, valuation approaches our fair value, and we're content on the sidelines."
