A move is afoot in Congress that would require all plant-based and cultured beef products to be labeled as “imitation.”

I wouldn't hold my breath. The dairy folks have been trying for years to  get that done with nut and soy "milk."

The problem they will have is the word "meat"does not historically just apply to animal flesh or product's...

Note that meat as animals is the second definition.

I drink and/or cook with coconut milk and almond milk daily. Love them both.

Morningstar does a very thorough job of researching BYND and assessing the investment merits of BYND:

I always did half and half.  Ran out recently and now I like it black.  When I worked in a supermarket in highscool, one of the cashiers asked Paul the produce guy to bring her a cup of coffee on the PA (the perc pot was on his bench).  He asked her how she liked it.   She said "I like it like my men".  He replied "is that strong or black"?  The store erupted in laughter.

I was always black, but recently I discovered heavy cream  ;D

Mine is always double, even triple strength, but then some half and half or heavy cream! Some of these things may change after Wednesday's fun and games!!!😳

  I still eat bad things...like pizza. It's about moderation. I have my treats once or twice a week and the rest of the time it's low fat and healthy. That also includes the worst poison of all, sugar. I rarely have sweet drinks or deserts. Sugar is all around evil, it can cause cardiovascular problems along with liver and kidney ailments. It's also super fuel for cancer. I don't post many of my healthy meals, a little too boring.

  The most important thing to do is taking your meds religiously. Will be thinking about you, keep us updated!

Lately, there have been quite a few articles discussing the IPO market and in which comparisons are made between the IPOs that went public before the dot.com bust of 2000-2002 and the IPOs that have come to market in recent years. Here is an example of such an article:

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/10/are-we-cusp-next-dot-com-bubble/600232/

With respect to BYND, it will be seen from the following article that it has succeeded mightily in comparison with other IPOs:

Blue Apron (APRN) would have been a good addition to that second list. It has been a spectacular failure, unfortunately. It’s so bad it is difficult to trace exactly how bad. It’s down about 95% from its IPO price in late June 2017. Not quite 2 years later, in mid-June 2019, it had a 1:15 reverse split. $10,000 invested at the IPO price is worth about $465 today. Originally slated to price at $15-$17 it eventually opened at $10 per share after an announcement from Amazon it was entering the meal kit business. Maybe Amazon should have just waited and bought the discounted APRN; it is doubtful ther got a 95% return on their foray into meal kits. Amazon, Ebay, and countless others had their bouts with huge declines but (these 2) have bounced back. Like those, some buyer though it was a good time to buy at its all-time high. In APRN’s case that was day 1 at a pre-split price of $150, currently $7. No earnings as far as I looked back (Feb 2018) and likely none before that. Market Cap is $93 million - still baffling to me.


This probably could have been a successful side business for a restaurant commissary or a really well organized and perhaps oversized but profitable restaurant. It would be interesting to have a candid conversation with the founder(s) to see what they would do differently if they could turn back the clock.

Tony,

I would agree with you inasmuch as the IPO market can be a treacherous place to try to make money. However, as a new subscriber to a service that tries to find disruptive companies in which to invest, I was given an offer to subscribe to another service that tries to find the best IPOs to invest in. And, in that vein, the new IPO service looks for "hidden" IPOs, with names that most are unlikely to have ever heard of, not the names that get enormous attention like the failed WeWork IPO, and Uber and Lyft and the like. BYND was not a hidden name and while it seems to have a fair amount of merit it, too, has dropped in price from its original IPO price.

If you are interested, you might try this link but keep in mind that the offer for the new IPO service, allegedly at a discounted price, ends later today:
