Technically, Beyond Meat seems to be trading within a descending channel formation in the intraday chart. However, the stock recently bounced off the trendline support to recover from oversold conditions.

Therefore, investors could target extended gains at about $74.89, or higher at $85.28. On the other hand, if the decline continues, Beyond Meat could find support at about $56.30, or lower at 445.85.
