Why Beyond Meat Stock Fell Today

Shares of Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND) fell by 4% Monday after chief rival Impossible Foods said that it was expanding its retail distribution at Canadian grocery stores. The news came a little more than a year after Beyond Meat entered  the Canadian market for plant-based meat substitutes. Meanwhile, the broader market sold off Monday, with the S&P 500 down by about 1.9% as investors grew more concerned over the past month's surge in the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of daily new coronavirus cases diagnosed in the U.S. set a new record high Friday, stoking fears of greater macroeconomic impacts to come.Impossible Foods will sell its flagship Impossible Burger at nearly 600 Sobeys locations; it's the second-largest grocery chain operator in Canada.
