Beyond Meat shares: what to expect from Q2 results

Beyond Meat is expected to see increased capex spend and pandemic-induced disruptions weigh on earnings.

When is Beyond Meat’s earnings date?

Beyond Meat, the food company that offers plant-based meat, is expected to release earnings on 5 August 2021. The scheduled results will cover the group's second-quarter (Q2) and half-year earnings.

Beyond Meat results preview: what does the Street expect?

While Beyond Meat’s comparative quarter (Q2 2020) benefitted from a surge in sales as pandemic induced fears equated to bulk buying of products, the most recent quarter (Q2 2021) is expected to see supply chain disruptions amidst increased capital investment in product promotions having negatively affected group earnings.

How to trade Beyond Meat results

Beyond Meat share price: technical analysis

The Beyond Meat share price has been trading in a broad range for the last nine months, with the lower level of support of this range at 102.00 and the upper level of resistance at 158.20.

In the near term, we see the price falling towards the 117.20 level. A close below this level would consider 102.00 the next downside support target from the move. Should the 117.20 level not be broken, and a bullish reversal manifests instead (supported by a sharp move out of oversold territory), 143.00 would become the favoured upside resistance target from the move.
