Vegan “Beyond Meat” Stock Soars SO High, Nasdaq Freezes Trading [ by Jackie Day ]

I’m no expert in stock, but I knew something was either very good, or very bad, when the ticker for Beyond Meat [BYND] froze today on the stock exchange!

I thought perhaps my computer froze, but then I remembered I wasn’t at home (where I have horrible internet), but rather at Starbucks, so I couldn’t figure it out!

Refresh.  Refresh.  Refresh!

Nope – had to do some quick research!

Turns out, Beyond Meat’s stock was halted because the price for shares of the company went SO high, SO fast!

Originally, Beyond Meat announced its shares would open for somewhere between $19-$21/share, which by last night was bumped to $25/share.

Then, after a delay in opening this morning, Beyond Meat finally made its HIGHLY anticipated debut at $46/share, and as I’m writing this, it’s over $60/share. Say WHAT?!

Sadly, even though I’ve been tracking the BYND symbol for months, it’s farrrr too pricey for me.  However, that’s A-OK; I’m still bouncing off the walls with joy!

This is a 100% VEGAN company!! And, it makes tasty VEGAN products!

And, it is HOT!

Beyond Meat had a commercial during the Superbowl – and the Academy Awards! You can even buy it at Carl’s Junior! It’s expanding like crazy, with no end in sight. And now, the public gobbled up the stock, too

I encourage folks to try Beyond Burgers in my book, too. And even though I’m NOT an expert in stock,  by the looks of things, Beyond Meat has a very bright future.


I’ve been vegan for over 30 years, and I’m telling you, watching – in real time – a vegan company’s stock shoot through the roof is a spectacular thing.

It’s a great day – for the animals, our environment and our own health, and I couldn’t be happier!

Now, if I could just get this Starbucks to offer a few more vegan options… Oy. Thankfully I have a little vegan corn muffin in my purse. lol.

Have a Beyond Beautiful day, everyone! And here’s a BEYOND MEAT COUPON for ya in celebration of Beyond Meat Day (May 3rd, 2019)! Just scroll to the bottom of the page.
