The company posted revenue and EBITDA misses in Q2 and, consistent with market concerns, reduced fiscal 2022 sales guidance with a costly inventory write-down punctuated by slower growth.

📉 Beyond Meat $BYND Chart Technical Analysis
Beyond Meat $BYND stock has a technical downtrend rating. The uptrend channel that has held since mid-May was just broken. However, the uptrend channel pattern has been a bit off as the June lows must be plotted below the lower wall to make the channel pattern. We could see $BYND stock fall back to the $25 area again, where I would expect to see a surge in dark pool buy orders where institutional investors bought the stock last time.
