Plant-based Food Stocks Index Continues To Decline: Now Down -29% YTD

There are only 5 pure-play plant-based food stocks in the fledgling fake meat, dairy, egg, and seafood sector with market capitalization of at least $100M and less than $1B and they continue to plunge down -6.4% MTD and -29.3% YTD.

Below is the stock price performance of the 5 constituents in the munKNEE Pure-Play Plant-Based Food Stocks Index to date in July (MTD) and YTD presented in descending order based on their MTD performances:

  1. Tattooed Chef (TTCF) has declined -4.6% MTD and is now -12.7% YTD
  2. Laird Superfood (LSF) has declined -4.9% MTD and is now -42.1% YTD
  3. Guru Organic (CSE: GURU; GUROF) has declined -9.8% MTD and is now -7.9% YTD
  4. Else Nutrition (BABYF) has declined -11.8% MTD and is now -28.8% YTD
  5. The Very Good Food Company (VRYYF) has declined -12.5% MTD and is now -44.3% YTD

The average market capitalization of the above 5 stocks is $359M with an average stock price of $1.33/share.

Please note that:

  • Plant & Company Brands (VGANF), Eat Beyond Global (EATBF), Plant Fuel Life (CSE:FUEL), Modern Plant Based Foods (MDRNF) and Tofutti Brands (TOFB) are nano-caps (i.e. have market capitalizations of less than $50M) ranging from $14M to $47M and averaging just $29M with an average price/share of only $1.09 and, as such, are not included in the Index
  • and Beyond Meat (BYND), with a whopping $8.0B market capitalization and $126.75/share, is excluded from the Index

as their inclusion would mask the performance of the other plant-based food stocks in the sector.

The average performance of the 5 stocks in the munKNEE Pure-Play Plant-Based Food Stocks Index is -6.4% MTD and -29.3% YTD.

Please note: The 5 pure-play stocks in the munKNEE Pure-Play Plant-Based Food Stocks Index are just that, pure, and focused almost exclusively on the research, development, sales, distribution, and marketing of vegan food products and, as such, the Index reflects the true health of the plant-based food sector in the U.S. and Canada.

  1. Eyes should open after discovering that the expensive “fake” cheese you bought contains zero nutrition.
    Would /should we ever assume that any “imitation” offers the same benefits as the original?

    Could it be tied to the larger issue of societal rejection of fakery, trickery, and deception?

  2. With respect, excluding Beyond Meat really taints the averages. BYND has done considerably better than your picks. Maybe with an elephant in the room, the mice don’t get much notice. I would like an assessment as to why their performance has been sub-standard.
