Beyond Meat's stock shoots above $200 intraday before paring some gains

Shares of Beyond Meat Inc. shot above the $200 mark for the first time in early trading Tuesday, before paring some gains, as the maker of plant-based meat alternative extended its rocket ride since going public about seven weeks ago. The stock was up as much as 19% at its intraday high of $201.88, but was recently up 9.7% at $186.47, which was more than 7-times the $25 IPO price, as bearish investors have been forced to flee despite some concerns over competition. Last week, Tyson Foods Inc. unveiled its first alternative-meat products. The stock's rally comes as the Renaissance IPO ETF has gained 4.6% over the past three months and the S&P 500 has tacked on 3.0%.
