Shares of Wendy's (WEN) were down as much as 11% in intraday trading today, and closed down over 2% on Monday after the company announced they are ramping up spending on their breakfast line for a nationwide release sometime in 2020.
Taco Bell said Tuesday that it is launching a vegetarian menu nationwide. The menu will include items like the Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme, the Black Bean Quesarito, and the 7-Layer Burrito. Taco Bell is part of the Yum Brands Inc. portfolio. Fast-food and fast-casual chains like fellow Yum restaurant KFC and Restaurant Brands International Inc.'s Burger King have recently added vegetarian and vegan options to their menus, scoring points with consumers. Yum Brands stock is down 2.2% in Tuesday trading, but has rallied 25.3% for the year to date. The S&P 500 index is up 18.3% for 2019 so far.
Stocks are entering the new week with a significant technical tailwind. Last Thursday's price breakout finally launched the S&P 500 and other major indexes above their recent trading ranges, likely setting the stage for a return to record heights. Given the favorable backdrop, shopping for the best stocks to buy now seems wise.Today, I'm here to help. I've scoured the market for the best setups heading into Monday. A premium was placed on companies whose share price held up well during the recent market turmoil. Generally, stocks that hold up the best during corrections are those that lead the market higher when sellers finally depart.On top of relative strength, today's trio also boasts lower-risk entry points. Rather than chasing stocks extended from support zones, we're identifying those that are on the cusp of popping.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Buy-and-Hold Stocks to Own Forever With all of that in mind, here are three all-star stocks to buy now. All-Star Stocks to Buy Now: Snap (SNAP)Source: ThinkorSwim Snap (NYSE:SNAP) is on pace for a banner year. Its 2019 gain stands just shy of 200%. The turnabout has been fueled by better-than-expected earnings and a price trend that has roasted shortsellers. Since July's earnings announcement lit a fire under the stock, we've seen a falling wedge pattern form to digest gains.The pause has allowed the 50-day moving average to catch-up and overbought conditions to ease. It has also created a lower-risk entry point for traders reticent to chase after the earnings-driven rally. Friday's high-volume breakout completed the falling wedge and is pointing toward higher prices.To capitalize, buy the Jan $16 calls for around $2.30 if we break above today's high. The lower implied volatility is making long calls an attractive play. Yum Brands (YUM)Source: ThinkorSwim Yum Brands (NYSE:YUM) has been a steady grower this year. Its consistent ascent completely ignored the recent trade war drama, sparing shareholders the losses inflicted in so many other stocks. Its 2019 gain of 30% has bested the S&P 500's 19% by a hefty margin.Each time YUM stock has broken resistance this year, we've seen robust follow through to reward buyers. The track record has me eyeing its current basing pattern with interest. The $120 zone has thus far halted multiple recent rallies. But with the rising 20-day and 50-day moving averages pushing higher, I think it's only a matter of time before the ceiling gives way. * 10 Buy-and-Hold Stocks to Own Forever If you want to bank on the success of its breakout and a run into year-end, then buy the Jan $120/$125 bull call spread for around $1.90. The risk is $1.90, and the potential reward is $3.10. Alphabet (GOOGL)Source: ThinkorSwim Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) had an advantage heading into last month's market swoon that many of its tech peers did not. It scored a large up gap on earnings that pushed it well above its major moving averages. As a result, even though GOOGL stock suffered in August, it remained above its 50-day moving average, maintaining the integrity of its uptrend.And now, it's on the brink of breaching short-term resistance, providing a clean breakout setup for spectators to capitalize on.Implied volatility is dirt cheap, making call spreads the easy play here. Buy the Nov $1,220/$1,250 bull call spread for $14.50. The risk is $14.50 and will be lost if GOOGL sits below $1,220 at expiration. The reward of $15.50 will be captured if it sits above $1,250 at expiration.As of this writing, Tyler Craig held bullish positions in SNAP.

When it comes to Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND), and BYND stock in general, the pattern is all too familiar.Source: Shutterstock There is huge hype ahead of demand. But the revolution doesn't happen. The bubble pops.In 2017, it was bitcoin. In 2018 it was marijuana. Now, in 2019, it is vegetable protein dressed up to look, smell and taste like animal meat.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSo what can we realistically expect from BYND stock?Over the last four quarters, Beyond Meat has revenue of $166 million; its market cap before opening for trade Aug. 29 was over $9.6 billion.It sure looks like a bubble. It smells like a bubble. It even tastes like a bubble. But could things be different for Beyond Meat stock? BYND Stock: The Hype and the HopeI would like to think things can be different for Beyond Meat. Meat production is decimating the environment. There's a growing movement that's in favor of making my late father-in-law's birthplace in Texas into a petting zoo. For now, the land remains a cattle ranch. Last time we visited, one of the calves there was being called Henry.Companies like Beyond Meat speak to this. With rival Impossible Foods still refusing to go public, BYND stock remains the only game in town. * 7 Stocks to Buy Down 10% in the Past Week Since its first trade in May at about $63 per share, Beyond Meat has been on fire, up 140%. In the quarterly report it has issued since going public, it reported an operating income of $3 million on revenue of over $67 million. That report missed earnings estimates by 16 cents a share. Analysts had expected a loss of just 8 cents.Still, Beyond Meat has done its research. The research budget is down to $4.2 million/quarter. In June, it had $54 million in cash, and just $30 million in debt.When Beyond Meat tested faux chicken near my home in Atlanta this week, it sold out within hours. If the test means anything, expect Kentucky Fried Chicken parent Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM) to go all-in on fake chicken very soon.BYND products are already going into meal kits. They will soon be appearing in school cafeterias, offices and stadiums, thanks to Aramark (NYSE:ARMK).Demand is there, as such companies as Restaurant Brands (NYSE:QSR), which owns Burger King, will attest. Beyond Meat is testing fake steak, even faux bacon. C'mon man. Bacon! The company's suppliers are drawing new investment. The SkepticsMeanwhile, skepticism is rising. And it's not just from people like me who have seen this movie before.No one believes the current valuation for Beyond Meat stock is justified. The bubble will pop at the first sign of an Impossible Foods IPO. With Beyond Meat costing $12 per pound, against $5 per pound for Henry, the bubble may have already burst.The Wall Street Journal insists Beyond Meat investors will choke on their optimism. It's just a fad and it's made with the same ingredients as dog food, the cynics insist. Dog food! The Bottom Line on Beyond Meat StockPersonally, I hope the meatless meat bandwagon has longer legs than bitcoin or even legal pot had.We have a Chinese restaurant near us that has been selling faux meat for decades and my best friend has been vegetarian for a half-century. The problem is that things like textured vegetable protein and seitan, sold in cans as mock duck, don't really taste like meat. * 10 Small-Cap Stocks to Buy Before They Grow Up I'm willing to believe there's a big market for meatless meat that tastes like meat.But the skeptics have a point, too. It would take years of solid, profitable growth for Beyond Meat to grow into its present valuation. At some point the market is going to find another new shiny object to chase. I don't know what the catalyst will be, but after the fall (and only after the fall) I might take another look at Beyond Meat stock.Until then, Henry's future lies between two buns.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.
