(Bloomberg) -- Starbucks Corp., the world’s biggest coffee-shop chain, is looking into meat alternatives to rev up its breakfast menu, and that caught the attention of Beyond Meat Inc. investors.Seattle-based Starbucks said in an email to Bloomberg News that it’s “exploring meat alternatives” for its breakfast menu, but declined to comment on specific partnerships or brands. Major restaurants have raced to include faux meat as consumers warm to plant-based products that have the look and feel of meat.Beyond Meat shares jumped as much as 14% to $124.82 on Tuesday. Rupesh Parikh, an analyst at Oppenheimer, said the Starbucks announcement illustrates how the market for faux-meat products continues to grow.“It shows how the trend continues to go mainstream,” Parikh said in an email. “Beyond likely has a chance at selling products at Starbucks.”Beyond Meat has already partnered with McDonald’s Corp. for testing in Canada. The company’s imitation beef and sausage products are becoming increasingly widespread in North American restaurants.Starbucks, meanwhile, has been adding dairy alternatives to its beverage menu, with the recent addition of oat milk at about 1,300 of its 14,000 U.S. locations. The company has also tried to add more healthy options to its menu in recent years in addition to high-calorie breakfast pastries. That’s included cauliflower-tabbouleh salads and almond-butter sandwiches.Starbucks also announced Tuesday that it’s trying to reduce its carbon footprint by curbing emissions, water usage and waste. The company’s shares fell less than 1% in New York trading on Tuesday.To contact the reporters on this story: Leslie Patton in Chicago at firstname.lastname@example.org;Andres Guerra Luz in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Sally Bakewell at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jonathan Roeder, Lisa WolfsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Starbucks Corp. Chief Executive Kevin Johnson said Tuesday that the coffee purveyor will add plant-based menu options as part of an expanded sustainability commitment. "Our aspiration is to become resource positive - storing more carbon than we emit, eliminating waste, and providing more clean freshwater than we use," Johnson wrote in a message posted on the Starbucks site. The new food items are an effort to create a more environmentally-friendly menu. The company will also shift to reusable packaging, invest in innovative agricultural practices and forest conservation efforts, better manage waste and create more eco-friendly stores. Preliminary targets for 2030 are to cut carbon emissions by half in both the company's operations and supply chain; halve water usage for operations and coffee production; and halve the amount of waste sent to landfills. Beyond Meat Inc. shares gained 3% in Tuesday premarket trading. Starbucks stock has rallied 44.7% over the past year while the S&P 500 index has gained 24.7% for the period.
The decision to use more plant-based meat alternatives was the first of five strategies Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson outlined as part of the coffee chain's just unveiled campaign to become 'a resource-positive company.'

(Bloomberg) -- Nestle SA is introducing faux sausages to its meat-substitute lineup as competition for imitation meat spreads beyond burgers.The KitKat maker will start selling a pea protein-based sausage in the U.S. and a soy-based version in Europe this spring, the company said.The Swiss food giant joins rivals Impossible Foods Inc. and Beyond Meat Inc. in a race to offer plant-based meat alternatives after demand for vegan burgers exploded.“The burger was what you would call in the tech industry the killer app -- it got the whole plant-based trend running,” Chief Executive Officer Mark Schneider said at a media event in Zurich on Thursday. “But it’s not enough to just have a burger.”Nestle is also developing plant-based tuna for its first fish substitute, Chief Technology Officer Stefan Palzer said. The tuna product could be added to pizza, sushi or served as a patty, he added.The company already has a range of meat alternatives on the market, including grounds, nuggets and schnitzels. Grounds could be a bigger opportunity than burgers in Europe, Schneider said.While Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat’s products got picked up by restaurants and fast-food chains like Burger King and racing-driver Lewis Hamilton’s new Neat Burger chain, Nestle’s tie-up with McDonald’s is so far limited to Germany. But the Swiss food giant has the advantage of a vast distribution network, which means it can easily roll out new products across supermarkets.“There’s an overall opportunity in both in-home and out-of-home, and we’re committed to playing ball,” Schneider said. “In this space, we play to win.”To contact the reporter on this story: Corinne Gretler in Zurich at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jonathan RoederFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

A new calendar year doesn't always mean a fresh start. But when it comes to three of 2019's more painful investments, well-built technical bottoms and out-the-gate momentum in January are favoring turnarounds that become full-fledged, bullish momentum stocks in 2020. Let me explain.I've said it before and it bears repeating, every dog has its day. In the markets this is akin to down and out stocks, which unexpectedly surprise investors with a jump in share price. But not every doggish stock is bound to be sent back into the proverbial dog house. Some will go on to become momentum stocks.As discussed earlier this month at InvestorPlace.com, rotations into underappreciated or even vilified stocks can turn into massive opportunities as overly bearish sentiment and price action turn aggressively around. Often these disruptive shifts in investment behavior occur early in the calendar year. If for no other reason this phenomenon can be tied to institutional investors who can move more freely into last year's dogs without having to defend a stock with fleas to stakeholders at year-end.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Cheap Stocks to Buy Under $10 Having said that, Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND), Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) and Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTCMKTS:GBTC) are three investment vehicles that demonstrate potential as momentum stocks in 2020. Momentum Stocks to Buy: Beyond Meat (BYND) Source: Charts by TradingViewAfter getting scorched in 2019 faux-meat producer Beyond Meat has quickly become a sizzling investment with Wall Street. Shares are up roughly 50% in just over a handful of trading days in 2020's early going. The catalyst? The initial headline driver was privately held rival Impossible Foods was throwing in the towel on its bid to land a spot on the McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) menu. And that leaves the door wide open for BYND stock.Technically speaking and aside from the huge gain in share value, BYND stock has firmly broken price resistance formed during the construction of a key lateral congestion pattern.BYND Stock Strategy: Our recent recommended strategy nailed a huge win in this momentum stock. But while resistance has been overcome, BYND stock is also incredibly volatile and overbought near term. My advice, put shares on the radar for purchase in-between $95 - $105 as part of a married put or collar options-based position. Pinterest (PINS) Source: Charts by TradingViewPinterest is the next of our momentum stocks to buy. When all was said in done in 2019, the popular web-based visual discovery platform saw shares cut in half from their highs and modestly below their IPO stock price of $19. But now investors might be smart to recognize what a difference a day can make.In truth, shares were already on the move out-the-gate in 2020. But Tuesday's near-10% gain has shares looking like a bonafide momentum stock. The headline driver was a report PINS stock has overtaken Snap (NYSE:SNAP) in users and only trailing social media giant Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and the company's Instagram app.Technically, PINS stock has confirmed December's bottoming hammer candlestick formed around the 1.27% extension level and begun a move into a large gap area. This could produce a vacuum-like sweeping of shares higher before an eventual pullback. * 7 Socially Responsible ETFs to Buy in 2020 PINS Stock Strategy: This momentum stock can be bought today in anticipation of the price gap being filled. On a challenge of the $25 area, I'd recommend buying a protective put on the cheap and leave the upside open-ended until after earnings in February. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) Source: Charts by TradingViewThe Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is the last of our momentum stocks to buy. GBTC stock is a listed trust tied to the cryptocurrency market's largest play. Investors pay a premium versus owning the actual contract. However, due to the transparency of listed OTC securities, as well as the product's strong liquidity, I believe this is a more suitable way for most investors to gain exposure.Any investor with even a passing interest in the markets has heard of bitcoin's dazzling run and equally impressive crash over the past couple years. But if there's one game-changing technology in the market right now, the cryptocurrency space would definitely deserve to be in that conversation. And right now there's reason to see another bullish cycle emerging and GBTC's status as a momentum stock back in action.Technically, shares of GBTC have formed and confirmed a bullish higher low pattern between the 62% and 76% Fibonacci levels on the monthly chart. With GBTC up roughly 22.50% in January, it's fair to say this is a momentum stock opportunity. Yet another glance at the big picture also strongly suggests bitcoin is just now turning the corner for bullish investors.GBTC Stock Strategy: Buy this momentum stock today. But don't go all in. I'd recommend adding if confirmation of the rally is backed by a bullish crossover from GBTC stock's monthly stochastics. Use the recent low for exiting if needed and stand ready to take partial profits at the 2019 high near $17.50.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management currently own positions in Beyond Meat (BYND) and Bitcoin (GBTC) securities, but no other investments mentioned in this article.
